Duc de Belmont Coteaux Bourguignons Pinot Noir 2018

It's Gamay (main) and Pinot Noir Blend.
2017 Vintage was very exciting, and this one share many characters. It's a beautiful wine of pleasure, very well désignés by Jean Loron: accessible, greedy, and generous, (10-12€ Nicolas) The intense fruitiness of the Gamay vinified à la Beaujolaise (carbonifère) is elegantly complemented by Pinot Noir which gives it structure and a certain class. perfect for an aperitif, a little refreshed. I note 9 because it is a very good price / quality ratio.

Never know what you’ll find on a trip to Specs. For sub $20 this is fantastic. White grapefruit, lemon balm, wild flowers, crisp Granny Smith apples, fresh herbs. Been playing around with this bottle for a few days now.. Day 3 and served slightly on the colder side is the way to go. — 15 days ago

La Bottière Juliénas Gamay 2017

What a juice! Almond, cherry, iron, a bit of barnyard. There is life in there! The palate is very yummy with a super juicy cherry, a strong grip some roundness in mid palate and a bit of tannins. This is wide and ample and the finish keeps that wide amplitude until the end. It feels like a cherry cannon is firing up in mid palate ans remains straight forward for a very long while. This is 15% but very quaffable. Not as playful and fruitful as others in the region but what a structure! Love it — 6 days ago

On open ...Nose has some smoke. Palate is citrus rind. Very mineral.

-as it opens very clean mineral opulence if that makes sense Nose is improving as well. Smoke disappears and it’s very mineral.

Just a very different wine. Such a unique style.

Bought from fass selections.

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2016

We're entertaining my in-laws and parents today, fun 🤷‍♂️. Bottles go fast when you're pouring for six glasses.

Creamy tropical fruits, under-ripe peach, light saline notes, needs years to come together still. Decanted 2+ hours. 2016 vintage 👍👍

Chablis Chardonnay 2017

OMG 2017 Chablis, what a vintage you are!!

Nose has slightly grassy notes, sweet pineapple core and wet, crushed limestone.
Palate has very zingy lime, lime flesh, tart green apple, lemon peel and drying mineral dust. Medium-long finish.

Decanted only about 30m, more time needed.
We're enjoying our first fire in the chimenea on this cool late summer evening, just one of many to come the rest of the year.

24 Hour Update: Acidity has subsided, wet limestone is more prominent, pineapple notes are more core and less sweetness today. I knew this just needed more time to come around, fantastic.

Have you had many 2017 White Burgs to see if the comparison continues further south? ‘14 an absolute favorite of mine for whites!

@Michael Herzog I do own a bunch of 17 Burg, some is at the house, some on pre-arrival still. Haven't opened anything aside from Chablis for 17. Likely I'll wait until at least '20 before I get to them.

@Michael Herzog 17 >>> 14 because more depth and fruit and better balance. 14 doesn’t have the depth. It has acid but is not aging as well as I thought. 17 is overall better.

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017

Creamy pineapple core, fine mineral notes, satisfying.

We're making Bolognese sauce today, needed some white wine, some for the cook, some for the sauce and some more for the cook. This is our new (blanc) cooking wine for the house, great price at ~$15.

It helps the sauce, and the cook!

Morgon Gamay 2016

Notes for the ‘N’ (no sulfur/zero zero) bottling. About 18 months since my last bottle, I really like how things have progressed and mellowed. There is some funk up front that blows off in less than 30 minutes in a decanter. Displays vibrant lively fresh fruit - pomegranate, cranberry, strawberry, Valencia orange - with sweet fresh fennel and mint. Low tannins, up front juicy acid. Length and depth. Awesome showing, and while this certainly could age, I love the vibrancy and freshness. Not sure holding on to the last bottle for more than a year is going to necessarily improve it for me personally. — 2 days ago
