Burg Cochem, Mosel

Domaine Fabien Coche

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2015

Nose has lightly toasted brioche, recently washed lemon, lemon pith, dry limestone, pineapple core and yellow apple peel.

Palate has lime pith, squeeze of lemon juice, slight waxy notes, pulverized limestone and lingering ripe tropical fruits.

Medium finish, feeling like the concentration is coming up short, still enjoyable. 90m decant, we'll see how it evolves over the evening.

(Soured 100% from Meursault, seven separate vineyard plots.)

*R.I.P. Ellis Marsalis, "Bucky" Pizzarelli, Manu Dibango, Bill Withers, Kenny Rogers and Joseph Shabalala. It's been a tough few weeks of losses in the music business. Stay Safe out there everyone.

It's sitting on our porch, 55°F out there, so decent service/decant temperature.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013

2013. Big expressive red fruited nose. Spicy aromatics add some complexity. Silky texture with wonderfully fresh red fruit. The spicy note emerges on the palate as well. Great power at the Bourgogne level here. Excellent showing. — 12 days ago

Domaine Gérard Julien et Fils

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017

Drank this during the CellarTracker Virtual Burgundy Tasting last night via Zoom. My first experience with any of the wines of Domaine Julien. This was a pop and pour situation and I wished I had given it more airtime because this was suuuuuuper primary and tightly coiled. Loads of tart, wild alpine strawberries, like the Smultron you find in a Scandinavian forest, taking center stage. Tongue pricking acidity. Beyond that, there isn’t much more at this stage in development. However, the purity is beyond typical for a humble Bourgogne and a few years in the cellar would do this a great service. I expect better things when the tannins better integrate and secondary characteristics begin to appear. Drink with an extended decant or hold until 2025. — 11 days ago

Domaine Leroy

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2015

Love this vintage. This has a little while to go, which is impressive for a Bourgogne Blanc. Minerality, but a nice honeyed citrus quality. Beautiful nose. Leroy rarely disappoints... — 9 days ago

Les Méchalots Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2017

Like drinking perfectly chilled water, but a bit smoother and with a slight tinge. Everything there just under the surface. Delicious. — 7 days ago

Domaine Jaboulet-Vercherre

"Vautrait" Bourgogne Pinot Noir 1988

Vintage 1988 | opened without expectations. It’s a fragrant and delicate Old Lady! Pinot noir 32 years old: a smell with brushwood, truffle and plums. From a modest origin. Surprise, still very drinkable and no odd signs of wine that has passed away. I am lucky. | Paired with pasta porcini. It makes my day. — 2 days ago

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

2016 is just a really nice vintage that bring out the fruit. Not overripe but Birgitta red strawberries and cherries. Balances the fruit and acidity well and if you can find these on sale, pick them up. A great weeknight wine if prices right. — 3 days ago

@Severn Goodwin I hear you. 14s and 15s can sometimes be closed while 16s seem generally open for business.
