Champs-Pimont Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

! !Yarivyo Wine Score!
8.9

My last bottle and a pleasure! White burgundy as it should be and in a reasonable price. This beautiful Beaune is at its peak with a lovely gold color, on the nose notes of cream, oak, citrus, hint of tropical fruit and mineral, a round medium smooth body with pleasant acidity and a delicious finish. My score 89, drink up — 9 days ago

Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2004

Straw to medium gold color. Nice weight. Notes of apricot, tan spice, kiwi, dusty clay and some wax. At first it’s watery and sweet in the mouth. After 2+ hours of air it firms up to give nice structure and acidity. Slightly missing in the mid palate. Good not great. Continue to be unsure about this wine which I’ve had many times. It’s better today than samples from the past few years. Maybe just more time is needed. — 3 days ago

I don’t think his Charmes is his best

Les Vergers Clos Saint-Marc Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2012

More intense and rounded. Some secondary notes coming through with a hint of honey, corn. A lovely succulent mid palate with precise acidity and overall a good balance and structure — 19 hours ago

Cherry compote, red rose, green tea , and spiced aromas framed by exceptionally clean fruit flavors, good acidity and palate cleansing tannins. Deliciously good now; lots of life remaining. — 5 days ago

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

Probably would have been better with a decant of at least a couple of hours. This wine has a hint of honeyed almond and cashew on the nose. Also has a little bit of herbal quality. The entry of this wine is actually pretty round on the front. Buttercream. The middle is where this wine gains acidity and a dried herb and limestone, crushed rock character. Finishes with more acidity. This wine definitely had much more going on when it was closer to room temperature. Served at a restaurant, they tried like hell to keep it as cold as possible despite my attempts of taking the bottle out of the bucket... it always found its way back in... I sense there is quite a bit of improvement in the next 3 or 4 years. If I had to do it all over again though, I would probably leave this one alone, especially at the price. — 10 days ago

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 1999

Light golden color and some nuttiness and butterscotch show its age and complement a mineral and fresh lemony core. Not as complex as would be ideal, but still very enjoyable unlike some prior bottles that were overly oxidized. — 8 days ago

Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

By far my favorite of all the burgundies tasted yesterday. Very approachable, structured, fruit forward, medium bodied, with elegance and a smooth finish. Barnyard funk/ earth on the nose with red and dark cherries, rose petals, pomegranate, spices, oak, and vanilla. — 7 days ago

9.4

Just brilliant. There is a zen harmony to these whites that is utterly magical. Nose of mineral, applesauce, apple spices, pear, sprigs of fresh grass just unreal and super unique. Not your typical white burg. Palate is just delightful. Saline and super mineral with green apple and unreal balance and purity. My god this is so ultra pure. Clean as a whistle with terrific, length, minerality and balance. Unreal long finish that is just perfect. What a great wine. — 9 days ago

@Pär Sjölinder yes it is but he can’t deal with Burgundian bureaucracy so I understand. And he’s still got the Aussie wine.
