Première Cuvée Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Alder Yarrow
9.3

Starting to become the house bubbly. Perfectly balance between berry/cherry and watermelon fruit and the crisper more saline notes that make it difficult to stop sipping. — 8 days ago

Les Vaudenelles Marsannay Pinot Noir 2017

9.0

Lighter amount of fruit and building material serves to expose a dense core of mineral, which is highly satisfying. First-class material. Again, the aromatic intensity significantly increases after 24 hours. — 3 days ago

Falletto di Serralunga D'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo 2005

Wow - so much to find on the gorgeous nose on this one - classic Barolo notes but just deeper and more elegant. Just a glass to explore and not enough time! Clearly miles to go in bottle and needs plenty of air to show! — 6 days ago

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2017 Barbaresco is pliant, open-knit and very easy to like. Sweet red cherry, orange peel, cinnamon and star anise give the 2017 a decidedly exotic quality to play of its curvy personality. All the elements come together so effortlessly. The 2017 is beautifully done. This is such a pretty wine. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020) — 5 days ago

Les Véroilles Chambolle-Musigny Pinot Noir 2017

I miss the tastings with this semi-confinement we are still in and stole the idea of @Benoit Duhamel here, so we made one at home with my son and my wife who are both wine fanatics as I am too. We chose 6 red Burgundies Villages, 3 Côtes de Beaune and 3 Côte de Nuits and we tasted these blind, each of us giving ranks and points for each wines. Tasting blind usually doesn’t lie and it can bring numerous surprises which it did in that case. All wines were fo a good level here, no bad wines and all were fun and good indiviually but the results were pretty clear cut in terms of the Côte de Beaune winning this battle.

1- Chassagne-Montrachet villages 2017 Jean-Claude Ramonet 32 pts
2- Volnay Vieilles Vignes 2017, Henri DeLaGrange 28 pts
3- Auxey-Duresses Très Vieilles Vignes 2017, Alain Gras 26 pts
4- Chambolle-Musigny Les Véroilles 2017, Bruno Clair 20 pts
5- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017, Lucien Boillot 12 pts
6- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017 Les Évocelles, Louis Boillot 8 pts

The Veroilles: muted nose that opens eventually on red fruits, strawberries, a touch spicy and slight oak. The wine has energy, freshness and is easy to drink with good structure but a length that is average at best for that level of wine. My no 4 but in a close group within the first four.


On s’ennuie des dégustations et j’ai bien aimé l’idée de @Benoit Duhamel , merci Benoit. Alors s’en est fait une à la maison à trois (en respectant les règles bien sûr). Nous avons choisi 6 Bourgogne Villages Rouges 2017, 3 Côtes de Beaune et 3 Côtes de Nuits, nous avons dégusté à l'aveugle et accordé des points à chaque position, il n’y avait aucun mauvais vin dans le lot et tous étaient très bien si bu individuellement, mais la dégustation à l’aveugle ne ment pas et les résultats peuvent être surprenants, les vins de la Côte de Beaune ont remporté la palme facilement ici, alors pour s’amuser un peu, voici le classement que cela a donné :
1- Chassagne-Montrachet villages 2017 Jean-Claude Ramonet 32 pts
2- Volnay Vieilles Vignes 2017, Henri DeLaGrange 28 pts
3- Auxey-Duresses Très Vieilles Vignes 2017, Alain Gras 26 pts
4- Chambolle-Musigny Les Véroilles 2017, Bruno Clair 20 pts
5- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017, Lucien Boillot 12 pts
6- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017 Les Évocelles, Louis Boillot 8 pts

Veroilles: nez muet qui s’ouvre lentement sur des fruits rouges, fraises, des épices et une touche de boisé. Une bouche énergique et fraîche, assez facile à boire mais avec de la structure aussi mais une longueur un peu moyenne pour le niveau. Mon no 4 de justesse mais fait partie des 4 premiers avec une coche sur les deux derniers. 89-90

"Les Longeroies" Marsannay Pinot Noir 2017

J. Kim
9.1

The fruit is slimmer than that of Mortet at the top, but well-matched creamy oak fattens the middle and the dark mineral layer provides solid foundation at the bottom. Bruno Clair wines are always austere like Bize’s, but slightly beefier and darker. There is a set of qualities here, class, enlightenment and restraint, that distinguishes the best from the rest. Overnight the aroma intensifies significantly. — 8 days ago
