Chablis Chardonnay 2015

2015 Gautheron Chablis & The Joshua Tree. New Chablis producer for me showing a good entry level high acid, fresh example. The album is a timeless classic. A little old & a little new. — 14 days ago

Les Peyrouses Côtes du Rhône Syrah 2015

I’m surprised others on delectable seem to really like this CdR. This 2015 version was rather soft and lacking character. Break! I upgraded from 8.5 to 9.0 after a glancing sip on day 4. Good acidity has developed and the blueberry cake is retreating. — 14 days ago

Les Suchots Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir

Upon pouring, there was a lot of funk, mushroom, perhaps even cardboard smell. Someone had mentioned its corked but we decided to let it breathe in the bottle for 2-3 hours. Glad we didn't give up on it because on the second try, the wine was full of bright red cherries with candy/herbal notes and flowers. The same person who said it was corked now said this was a Rousseau. I can see why, but there was sandalwood and airiness that pointed to Vosne Romanee. I'm a fan of Hudelot Noellat, but I didn't know it would become this lovely. — 5 days ago

Petit Torus Madiran Tannat Blend 2012

Tart red cherry, blackberries, savory herbs, and black pepper. Smooth, medium bodied. Drinkable on its own, but paired well with curried short ribs and potatoes.

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2013

@Hugh O'Riordan - Here you go. 2013 Graillot Crozes & the Great Pink Moon. Nick Drake packed more into the thirty or so minutes on this record than some did on double LP’s. The Graillot is a singular expression of Crozes. Exactly the way I like my Syrah. — 17 days ago

La Maltroie Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2012

Makes me rethink my whole position on Chardonnay. I have finally found a Chardonnay that wasn’t flabby or over oaked. Balance is an understatement. Green apple and lemon finish clean with enough acidity to stay refreshing. — 10 days ago

Domaine Grand Veneur Les Champauvins Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2005

2015 vintage. Subdued, musky nose. Really nice velveteen mouthfeel. Fairly plushy finish. A hint of white pepper along with leather and plum and smoke. Decently long on the finish. Not too shabby for a cheap chicken. — 2 days ago

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2015

Vibrant Ruby color. Forward nose of red fruit, with distinct spice on the backend. Medium+ body of red berries and spice, backed up by medium tannins. Medium+ finish. Delicious but not yet fully integrated in my opinion. I understand that it is very young but I had to try one... — 11 days ago

Alain Hudelot-Noellat

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Delectable Wine

(aged in about 40% new oak, a bit less than in recent vintages): Medium red with modest saturation. Aromas of black raspberry, leather and earth are less pristine than those of today's wines. Creamy-sweet and spicy in the mouth, with a slightly high-toned quality to its fat flavors of red berries, red cherry, underbrush and leather. Can't match the punch of today's Hudelot-Noëllat wines but finishes spicy and very long, with a suggestion of rusticity and slightly edgy tannins that eventually turn a bit dry. Charles van Canneyt, who did not begin vinifying until 2009, following the retirement of his grandfather Alain Hudelot-Noëllat the previous year, noted that the estate's grapes were totally destemmed back in '99, then crushed and pumped back into cuves, an approach that he said could extract bitter tannins if the seeds were green.
