9.5

Floral. Roses. Wet earth, mid season cherries, sour cherries, violets. Expansive and expanding. Sweet cherries. So lacey and delicate. Sick inner mouth florals and such vivid fruit. Needs maybe 45 more minutes. — 3 days ago

Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Really good with a 2 hour decant. Lovely cherry fruit. Nice mouthfeel. A bit of iron towards the finish. Blind, I would have guessed Chambolle. — 21 days ago

"Les Angles" Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Very Pinot like nose, also spices and some “cellar scents” but lots of spices, the profile and palate looks Nebbiolo like with a tight, powerful and dry finish, but also lots of class and elegance, very good 91-92

Nez qui pinote un peu, quelques notes de cave, sous bois, beaucoup d’épices, un profil à l’aveugle presque de Nebbiolo, finale puissante et avec une touche asséchante, belle acidité, un vin puissant mais racé, très bon. 91-92

9.3

Checking in on some 18’s. Nose is soppy red cherries and tons of earth. Floral and complex with great breadth. Nifty little lieu-dit here. Palate is powerful, dense and tannic. But has a terrific core of fruit. Really gets to the back of the throat and love how the tannins are mineral inflected. Has the “broad” character of 2018 which will I think, like 1993, ultimately smooth out with age. More closed than last year but it’s all there. Will be back. Now with air it’s integrating more and sweetening up and the tannins are becoming more velvety — 17 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Chardonnay 2018

After this weekend, it's a bit tough to get back to "regular" wines. Nevertheless, this is yummy, but see previous notes.

Day 3: this has picked up significant weight and complexity. Wow.
