Vougeot, Côte De Nuits

Côte de Nuits-Villages Pinot Noir 2019

This is excellent stuff and punches well above its weight. Floral and spicy nose with medium body, good fine tanins and lots of minerality / balance. Very dense and structured from the mid to the end, so it will benefit from 4 to 5 years in a good cellar. Great stuff and excellent QPR. — a month ago

Vieilles Vignes Côte de Nuits-Villages Pinot Noir 2019

This was delicious, and a winning blind for me. Having a baseline on the table definitely helped. Although less sweet and intense, I felt the JM Millot was in the same genre as the Métras, with similar texture, floral lift, minerality, and red fruit profile. It was the difference in fruit sweetness that gave it away as being from greater Burgundy, whereby Pinot Noir usually appears less sweet than Gamay to me. The village was definitely a lot harder to identify which made sense upon the reveal - when in doubt, it’s probably from one of the lesser communes (or Morey lol!). Fine, fresh, and energetic, I would have drank a lot more of it if not for the other wines on the table. Another to revisit. — 16 days ago

Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Fruits rouges, griottes, un peu de bois mais sans lourdeur. Une bouche d’une belle classe et élégance, un équilibre exemplaire, approchable pour un 2015, excellent. 93-94

Red fruit, cherries, touch of wood that is mot disturbing. The palate has this generous fruit of the 2015, it is balanced, classy, elegant and approachable for a 2015. Gorgeous.

9.9

Just a phenomenal nose. Wow. Perfect, and so deep. 4D cherries. Black, red, perfect cherries. So deep. Endless cherries. High toned and dark at the same time. Totally amazing. Wow. This is genius. Haunting earth and stoniness. This nose is a 10.0. Just insane. Totally mindblowing. The detail and depth is unreal. Best nose of the 2020 Brissets. The nose smells like GC Vosne-Romanee. Such a special site. Juicy and so dense but bright as well. So sweet and fresh. This just has a tiny berry juicy explosiveness. Sappy and pure and such lift. Finishes so mineral. Wow that opulence in the midpalate leads to unreal juicy fruit on the finish that is so bright, energetic and lifted. Stunning length. The detailed black and red cherry fruit that is blended with the perfect level of opulence. Longest of all the 2020 Brisset reds. Wow. A profound wine of total genius. I am floored. The tannins are so fine, so well knit. so velvet. This will be a 10.0 with age. — 11 days ago

Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2017

First glass was terrific, but than it seemed to close down. Had the second half on day two and again very good. Floral nose, plenty of mouthfilling red fruit, nice acidity. I think more bottle age is required. — 9 days ago

Domaine Dujac

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Très beau même si c’est encore un bébé, beaucoup de matière, la structure et la texture d’un GC sont la par contre, bâti pour la route. 92-93

Very nice structure and texture, but still a baby, a little atypical of many 2006 I drank before from many producers.

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Un vin super jeune mais quel potentiel et quelle matière, très bon maintenant malgré la jeunesse. 93-94

Very young of course but such potential, density and structure, you can still feel this Grand Cru impression when you know it is special.

Domaine Francois Bertheau

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Delish! Lovely sappy cherry fruit. Light in color, but a hint of oak tannins. Starting to show a bit of tertiary development. Bigger and more powerful than I thought it would be. Enjoyed with smoked roasted duck. — 3 days ago

Pop and pour. Notes from 24 hrs open. On the nose: earth, dark cherry, balsam, dark cherry liqueur. On the palate: good acidity, good density. Solid, but unremarkable. — 4 days ago
