Quintessence De Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2004

Light gold color, youthful appearance in the glass. Great CC nose with notes of citrus, ginger, reddish clay, wet stones and tan spice. Fruit still very present, matched against some fine-grained acidity. Awesome mouth feel. I know some of these can go south sooner rather than later, but this was right in the zone - youthful with plenty of energy. Great showing tonight. — 8 days ago

La Romanée Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Certainly one of the absolute best 1er crus in Chassagne, 2018 La Romanée from Dancer is superb tonight, of Grand Cru quality and particularly exceptional for the vintage. It’s bouquet is layered with ripe stone fruit, white flowers, toasted hazelnut and attractive reduction and its deeply concentrated palate has incredible vibrancy and lift, totally in focus and elegantly textured, giving way to a notably long mineral inflicted finish. Fantastic bottle. — 9 days ago

Les Vieilles Vignes Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2018

Once the bottle got some oxygen and blew off some of the acid - this wine was really beautiful. Nice oak balanced with fruit and some sunshine.

Tete du Clos Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

This needed quite a bit of air to get going, I’d recommend a decant. Very elegant, precise wine. High acid, layers of citrus and stone fruit 😍🍋⚡️ — 3 days ago

Les Tillets Meursault Chardonnay 2016

Expressive & rich yet with amazing purity & depth. Yellow stone fruit, fresh hazelnut, fresh pastry dough, a whiff of stoniness. So fresh and yet so complex.
On the palate this has an amazing mouthfeel, starts of typically broad but quickly shows focus, precision, depth. Amazing energy, a light tannic touch, energetic acidity. Really good length, too.
This sings in this vintage.

Santenay Beauregard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Very enjoyable. Nose has vibrant, sappy dark cherry juice, a bit of sweet spice, and warm, crushed-rock infused minerality and a little teeny bit of cow pasture. Savory, with nice flavor concentration in the mouth, nice minerality and zingy acids at the tail end of the finish. Whispy tannins. So drinkable now, but will be better in 2-4. — 9 days ago

Le Peu Morier Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2013

Very complex nose with aromas of bees wax, yellow apples, dried stone fruit and lemon. Sharp acidity on the palate, but the fruit is a bit thin. Just a bit past peak. — 10 days ago
