Aloxe Corton, Côte De Beaune

Bonneau du Martray

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 1986

On to the white burg course… when I opened this 5 hours before guests arrived, the first whiff caused a smile and I told my wife, “this is why you age white burg!” What an amazing nose right from the get-go. Straw to medium gold color, bright and heavy in the glass. High-pitched nose with notes of meyer lemon, cardamom, kiwi, tan spice, gravel stone and almond paste. Palate staining acidity in the mouth. So much energy for a 35+ year old Chardonnay. I’ve had this many times in the past, and tonight it might just have been at its best! (Bday 3 of 12) — 4 days ago

Crazy how good 85 and 86 BdM CC have been forever. Happy b-day.

La Pousse d'Or

Clos du Roi Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Nose has damp, mossy forest floor, black cherry pie you accidentally stepped on while hiking in aforementioned forest, molasses, fire drowned out by rain, dried blackberry, dried leather and wet cedar.

Palate has dried blackberry, under-ripe black cherry, fig paste, saturated oak barrel, oak spiced red cherry, notable tannins, still overly restrained.

Decanted 4H, probably wanted 8H+, too youthful. This bottle will likely need about a decade to concentrate.

Paired to a favorite dish in our house, Curry Braised Eggs (from our hens), served over brown rice with toasted Naan bread. Absolutely delicious! 😋 Nothing better than mildly spiced, tomato-based dishes with exquisite Burgundy.

(Honestly this Corton deserves a braised beef dish, expect it would be spectacular with short ribs next time around...note to future self.)

The fourth of several 2014 La Pousse d'Or bottles we acquired late in 2019. This, as expected, needs another 15-20+ years (2036+) to show its truer self.

Gorgeous golden color. Nose of butterscotch and stone fruits. Palate is rich and complex - lots of white burg fattiness is kept in check with a balanced acidity and apricot notes with a long finish. This is in a great spot now - no reason to hold back. — 19 hours ago
