Fantastic wine!

Domaine Bizot

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2017

A very rare bird almost impossible to find where the production on their 9 plots only amounts to a total of 9000 btls. I discovered their wines when I attended a Bizot tasting & lunch at Marea in Feb 2020 where I found their whole cluster wines had this beautiful purity of fruit & transparency. This btl was no different offering up an amazing nose of red cherry & berry fruits, lush & pure on the palate with baking spices, floral & mineral notes. A wine that is so good now you can drink young but will reward time in the cellar. — 19 hours ago

Hi James, a good friend and an avid collector flew in last week to have dinner with me & brought me this btl as a gift as he knew I was a big fan of Bizot. He gets a small allocation every year but was offered no 2017’s so he sourced it from Europe. Cheers!

That’s a good mate.

Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair

La Colombiere Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2016

Explosive nose full of CLB spice and piercing red fruit and violets. Hardly any reduction here on the pnp. It continued to gain weight and complexity over time. Complexity as well as intensity both on the nose and the palate that is just simply not associated with village wine. It’s so pure, balanced and transparent, and continued to blossom and expand over the course of dinner. Tannins are smooth and fine grained and the finish is very persistent. — 6 days ago

Domaine Anne Gros

Cuvée Marine Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Chardonnay 2009

Nose has neverending crushing of flint/granite, warm lemon curd, salted yellow apple slice, cool Asian pear and old, crystalline cheddar.

Palate has ripe pineapple, over-ripe yellow apple, moist chalk/limestone, dried coconut shreds, faint butter notes, table salt with medium acidity. A great wine, slow oxidation for 2H then decanted 3H, so many years in front of this amazing bottle. Drink this 2026-2030 from proper storage.

Pre-birthday dinner for our dear COVID bubble friend; we've only allowed one of our close friends into the house for almost the past year, tonight we're celebrating that he's one year older than me. 😉

Nice, I've come to understand over the years with your posts/comments that you've had some wonderful life experiences.

Domaine Vigne Au Roy Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir 2017

Lead, canned cranberry on the nose. Chalk, blueberry, moss. A hint of funk that will age well. Light mineral on the palate. At first seems simple, but you keep going back for more and getting more. Green raspberry. Bourbon-orange. — 13 days ago

Rue de Chaux Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

We love the style. Purity of fruit, transparency, classicism, not overdone. Black fruits, spices, some of the rusticity of Nuits, medium bodied, ends on an elegant register. Fantastic with food. Great QPR. — 9 days ago

Aux Cras Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Absolutely stunning. Quite the contrast to the Colombiere, as this is much more serious and structured and the Aux Cras terroir shines through. New oak is more prevalent, of course, but it’s so integrated already and doesn’t get in the way. The nose is incredibly intense and aromas of dark fruit, sweet spice and a wet rock minerality waft from the glass. While this wine is let’s say, more masculine and less sexy than the Colombiere, there is still a seductive Vosne-like perfume that’s so undeniably CLB and lures you in. The palate is powerful and is full of energy, while at the same time remaining focused and seamlessly delineated. To no surprise length is superior to the Colombiere. Totally irresistible now, but boy this will be a knockout down the road. — 6 days ago

"Les Grasses Têtes" Marsannay Pinot Noir 2018

@Delectable Wine this is Bruno Clair Marsannay "La Charme Aux Prêtres", which I didn't find in search.

Pop and pour. Could have waited til.next.year based on the NM tasting note, but would be missing out. On the nose: omg, I have been missing this purity: dense, sweet wild strawberry, soft plum, cinnamon spice, soft leafy notes. On the palate: fantastic acidity, strawberry, spice, soft plum. Attenuated tannin on the finish. Absolutely lovely.

Les Vaudenelles Marsannay Pinot Noir 2018

Pop and pour, bc I was hoping that lightning might strike twice (Ron Hextall, anyone, anyone?). So close (geographically) to the charme aux prêtres, but so different...still very good. On the nose:.much darker, with more plum and a touch of black raspberry, but still the signature house spice. On the palate: blackberry, cinnamon, allspice, fantastic acidity and density...soft tannin on the spicy finish. — 2 days ago
