The Dreaming Tree

Domaine Romain Collet

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

N: Butter and some oyster shell. Restrained, grass.
P:More salinity mixed w creaminess, fuller than the nose portends. Almost crisp. Refreshing, some white tree fruit in there.
See prior notes.
With an ash coated St. Maure, very nice indeed.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Tim Mondavi’s master piece! This is my 2014 Continuum. One word: FANTABULOUS! Sage mountain vineyard in 2014 was incredible for cabernet! This is the best cab Ive had all year! Who says you dont always get what you pay for? 225 dollars of pure ecstasy in a glass! Wow. Fig newton dipped in grape jelly on the nose. Dark berries fill the palate followed by black pepper and dark chocolate . It is as velvety smooth as it gets. The oak and tree moss come through on the finish with a slight tingle on the corners of the lips and cheeks. The finish is dry and lingers with even more complexity! Cigar box, mineral rich soil, Black licorice, and grape jelly again! Goodness. I have been waiting on this one for a long time and I am so glad it is as good as I thought it would be. I just wish I had someone to share it with!!! — 21 days ago

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. This improved vastly with air, getting darker, more dark fruit driven and so sapid. brilliant! — 3 days ago

Domaine Leflaive

Sous le Dos d'Âne Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Clear light yellow. Nose of match stick and stone. Palate of lemon curd, tree fruit, stones and minerals. Perfect balance and a long smooth finish. I detect no oak. Flirting with perfection.
The vineyard is in Blagny where the whites are sold as Meursault.
