2019; Decanted 2H.
Nose has dried pineapple, wet plywood, dried lemon zest, dehydrated mango, vanilla and peach cobbler.
Palate has pineapple core, ripe yellow apple, clementine zest, mango with a nice bite of acidity.
So youthful! We're really looking ahead to how these develop over the next 6-8+ years, as that seems to be the sweet spot on this particular site. (Heck, the 2013's are still drinking amazing.)
Nose has overflowing pineapple & vanilla and crushed lemon peel.
Palate has warmed vanilla ice cream, mashed ripe pineapple with faded acidity. The vanilla notes are very present today. — 5 days ago
The south facing floral, pure and mineral Tillets and 2011 is a perfect match. It’s in a fantastic spot flaunting a beautiful bouquet of lilies, gunflint, hazelnut, honeyed stone fruit and lemon zest. The palate is incredibly vibrant with a crystalline purity, citrusy acids, an elegant texture and a stony mineral spine that holds it all together before its long, lifted and focused finale. 2011 Tillets has come together beautifully! — 5 days ago
This is the Pascale Matrot not the Pierre Matrot Charmes Meursault. I have previous notes here on both Cuvées. A strange charcoal note initially which wasn’t there on the 2nd day. Pale to mid yellow in colour Flint and citrus with yellow orchard fruits developing. River stones. Very mineral together with pear on the medium weight palate. An excellent Premier Cru Meursault from a great vintage for White Burgundy. — 11 days ago
Nose has cooled lemon curd, light apple cider vinegar, cold pineapple, moist moss, oxidized green apple slice, damp clove and very wet grassy notes.
Palate has pineapple core, bruised green pears, faint lanolin, light honey notes, light under-ripe yellow peach and white waxy notes round out the finish.
Double decant with 12H rest. A Saint Aubin for the trending natural wine crowd without being over the top 'natural'. 92-93 Points.
Paired to a grilled slab of Steelhead Trout, perfection.
Nose has fresh green apple peel, warmed yellow apple slice and white waxy notes.
Palate has warm pear, slight honey and under-ripe pineapple.
Much improved; Score change 92>93. — 4 days ago
Have not had since 2019. Nose is brambly with a cherry melange. Very earthy. Some wood shavings. A bit aromatically closed for now. Palate is juicy, very concentrated and sappy with great purity. Really long but also seems backwards. But terrific fruit and intensity. Very very sappy. Needs a few more years but you can the low yields of 16 gave this wine density and tons of material.
After an hour this has softened up and is super juicy and the tannins have calmed down. 9.2 to 9.3. Lavieres is such good terroir. — 6 days ago
OMG what a nose . Heaven. Floral and ripe and so pretty. Like pretty when you see a woman so gorgeous that you just can’t muster up any words. Striking. Unreal lemon and lime. Meyer lemon. But omg the florality. Beautiful discreet oak. Framed so perfectly. Like a filmmaker framing a shot. This nose is 9.9. It’s that easy and that good. Wow. That is concentrated and so deep. Candied and elegant with a superb core of sweet fruit and sweet wood. Impeccable balance. Superb intense and scintillating minerality. More mineral than 18. About as mineral as 19. As this airs the harmony of the nose becomes greater and greater. Wow this is dense and intense. For a wine that is this structured it is graceful a f. — 8 days ago
Really impressed with this stuff - reminded me of Chouet’s Femelottes a bit, but this was rounder, much more lush mouthfeel. Golden apples & crunchy minerals, some orchard fruit, bit of paraffin, leesy, but for me it was the absolutely gorgeous mid-palate, opulent and impressive length on finish. This over delivers - bravo @Lyle Fass — 3 days ago
