Beaune, Côte De Beaune

Henri Prudhon & Fils

Sur Gamay Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has oxidized yellow apple, pineapple core, peach pit, lemon zest and older, wet oak.

Palate has day old pineapple slice, dried lemon peel, creamy butter, green banana peel, zingy acidity with nice sandstone-like minerals on the medium-long finish.

Seems quite advanced for a 2016 vintage, a nose and (sort of) palate of a wine 6+ years its senior. Our only bottle, likely we could get another, but at ~$50 it's not worth it to us. I did decant for about 90m, based on experience with other 2016 S-A wines, not sure if this was enough time for this bottle, but it is showing improvement with glass time.

At hour 3+ the semi-ripe, tropical fruits are finally making an entrance 👍

This is brilliant. Huge expressive nose. So clean and full of mid season cherries, spice, flowers, mineral, licorice, high end bubble gum. So dope. Palate has stunning sweetness and purity. Oh man what a sphere. Stunning ripe tannins. Beautiful purity and so delicate. What a Pommard. Showing stupid elegance. True wow. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Ripe and juicy tannins and such complexity. A lot of material. Awesome. — 9 days ago

Les Caillerets Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2009

We start well the weekend. A delicious wine still full of energy ... a more or less open nose but I just opened it. On the nose, citrus and pineapple notes. In the mouth a nice maturity of fruit with flavors of coconut, pineapple, white flowers and honeysuckle. Not at all heavy with a nice minerality and a little bitterness on the finish. A style that I like very much ... a delight ... — 19 hours ago

We're sharing some pregame bottles before my corporate, year end holiday celebration! These bottles will likely be miles ahead of the wines to be enjoyed the moment we step out of the hotel room...Jamais en Vain, Toujours in Vin!

All prior notes apply, such a wonderful bottle!

Les Bons Feuvres Beaune Pinot Noir 2015

Such a good value Burgundy. Sweet, earthy, gravelly notes along with sweet cherry sap. Lively, soft cherry and limestoney flavors. Nice acidity too. Not particularly concentrated or complex but more than makes up for it worth friendliness. — 18 days ago

Les Pezerolles Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Classic Pezerolles. Stoney, surreal and layered. Just gorgeous. Tightest out of the gates so far. So floral. Gorgeous lithe elegant and ephemeral cherries. Cherry flower. Sick nose. Licorice and flowers. Just amazing. Juicy and complex with stunning intensity and finesse. Stoney throughout. Gorgeous elegance allied with sweet fruit and all on a silken string. So juicy with great breadth and depth also so so so long. Stunning. Ripe and Stoney tannins. Such a wonderful Pezerolles. — 9 days ago
