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. — a year ago

Vieilles Vignes Fleurie Gamay 2011

Mag. So lifted and ethereal—strawberries, soil and sous bois glide across the palate. Not sure if it’s the producer or just the temps a’ changin’ but this is simply in a different register from most Beaujolais today — 2 years ago

I always try to buy Cru Beaujolais in mag! It's the best way to ensure I can neglect the bottle for many years.

@Severn Goodwin Yes good call—and so perfect for the thanksgiving (or in this case Passover) table
