Volnay Pinot Noir 2020

Gorgeous nose. Luscious dark black cherries and darker red cherries. Ethereal and heavenly. So deep and so enveloping. Gorgeous dusty tree bark, some soy as well. Stunning. Best village nose of any Buffet Volnay I’ve had. The fruit clarity is off the charts. Superb complexity and freshness and the fruit is way redder on the palate. Amazing compact quality and so pure and balanced. Complex and so mineral. This is profoundly delicious. A lithe but substantial structure. Gorgeous saline aspect on the nose. Wow the mineral/fruit combo is only something Burgundy can do at this level. Now the florals are kicking in. What sweet, velvety tannins. A beautiful bottle of Volnay. — 4 hours ago

La Dominode Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Pop and pour. On the counter unrefrigerated overnight. Notes from 24 hrs open. Leaning savory yesterday, but very savory today. On the nose: earthy bark, strawberry. On the palate: good acidity, lighter bodied, even for a burg, and earthy red fruit. Not amazingly complex, but food-friendly solid wine. — 23 days ago

Carelles sous la Chapelle Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2020

9.6

Always one of the most elegant 1er Crus in Volnay. Nose is a bit reticent as we start off with light cherry and some herbals plus some sweet black cherry fruit. Also some reduction which will blow off. Lovely bramble desiccated leaves and super wet earth and soil tones. What a palate. Teeming with energy and freshness. Wow great acidity here and tremendous fruit. Terrific inner mouth aromas and stunning sapidity. So elegant and structured with incredibly deep fruit. What length and seriousness! This is the first 2020 i’ve tasted that needs 3-5 years in the cellar. Amazing sweet tannins and they are so finely knit like a cashmere sweater. This is brilliant! I’ll be back as it opens. — 4 hours ago

Maison Albert Bichot

Meursault Chardonnay 2018

Nose has stuck match, candied pineapple, vanilla candy (pina colada?), warmed lemon peel, lemon meringue with faint moist chalk notes.

Palate has warmed lemon curd, chunky vanilla notes, almond cake, lithe with a medium finish.

Decanted 3H. $60 Costco.

Not inspiring at this date, incredibly youthful with likely two decades in front. Yet, a solid pair with grilled Steelhead Trout this evening.

So my first experience was with the puligny and meursault. Amazing wines and not Uber expensive. This $40 sav Les beaune plays with the big boys. Just awesome. Not a producer you hear a lot about but if you love burgundy you’re already on the bandwagon — 18 days ago

Roux Père & Fils

Montée Rouge Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

Intense aromas and flavors of mushroom, tobacco leaf, black tea with just a hint of black cherry fruit. Hints of meat, Forrest Floor and leather. All of the tertiary/savory notes come to the forefront and the fruit stays in the background. Lighter in body. Dark garnet color. — 11 days ago

Les Trois Terroirs Pommard Pinot Noir 2020

Lyle Fass
9.4

Deep, rich and ripe nose of loads of stones, black cherry, dark roses, violets, earth, bittersweet cocoa, and that classic Pommard stoniness. Ultra deep. Almost like a compote on the nose. Palate is dark, juicy, sleek and slippery. Super concentrated but never heavy. Terrific, delicious fruit that is backed up by superb stoniness. Exceptional purity and wonderful freshness and balance. This is a brooding bottle of wine that really balances power, ripeness and grace. This needs some air and i’ll be back but truly a phenomenal wine. — 3 days ago

Aloxe-Corton Grand Cru Domaine Latour Pinot Noir 2008

Had this at a tasting and bought several bottles, aged well, just opened last one. Aged for about 12 months in French oak barrels (15% new). Ruby, brown edges, with aromas of red and black stewed fruits and complex spice. On the palate, flavors of layered fruit, ripe black cherry and raspberry with cedar, tobacco, herbs and nutty notes. Full soft tannins, balanced acidity, long ending with fruit and earthy character. Outstanding! Worth the wait! — 6 days ago
