Cuvee Cassaneas Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2018

A very interesting inadvertent experiment. I left this in a styrofoam case in my garage. It was there for almost 2 months. The garage hits 90 during the day.

Any rate the wine tastes like the wine.

Go styrofoam !!!!!

Nose is ocean breeze. Lemon flower.

Palate is mineral. Hint of gods lemon soda.

Bought from fass selections.

Domaine des Marronniers Chablis Les Marronniers Premier Cru 2018, Burgundy, France

#KosherWineSunday

Pretty golden in color.

On the nose pears, apples, citrus, light wood, light spices, earth and minerals.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with lemons, ripe citrus fruits, apples, bitter herbs, spices, light oak, earth, vanilla and white pepper.

Long finish with almonds and spices.

This is a delicious Chardonnay from Burgundy. Well-balanced with an elegant mouthfeel.

This 4 year old is showing nice complexity now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

I had it before, and it is drinking even better now.

A good quality wine. Good right out of the bottle and better when not too cold.

Fruit forward and luxurious. Rich and focused.

Kosher and not Mevushal.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$45.

Wow quite a ABV

Julienas Gamay 2018

Light ruby color, beautiful shine. Nose: bright red fruits (strawberry, cherry), peppery, and mineral. Lively mouth with a slamming acidity, constituting the red thread of this tasting, balanced by gourmet notes of juicy fruit, and a beautiful chew in the mouth, with very fine tannins, as expected. Served at 12/13 degrees in summer, it is a perfect treat. 2018 is beginning to reveal welcome evolution notes, supporting a discreet oak aging. To be tasted absolutely within 1/2 years.

Robe rubis claire, belle éclat. Nez fruits rouges éclatants (fraise, cerise), poivrée, et minérale.
Bouche vive avec une acidité claquante, constituant le fil rouge de cette dégustation équilibré par des notes gourmandes de fruits juteux, et une belle matière en bouche, avec des tanins très fins, comme attendu. Servi à 12/13 degrés en été, c’est une parfaite friandise. 2018 commence à laisser poindre des notes d’évolution bienvenues, soutenant un boisé d’élevage discret. A regoûter absolument d’ici 1/2 ans.

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017

Very nice - last had a year ago, and the time has made the density and juicy acids really come together. Delicious. Definitely rivals the Brisset in terms of value. — 16 hours ago

Great stuff with positive aging outlook, even the BB. Plus, Richard Bos is a great guy.

Day 2 notes. Still showing some wood as per usual for this cuvee. But there is so much mint, herbs and wet earth. So gorgeous. Salty as well. Palate is concentrated and elegant not showing any wood and has grand cru grip and structure. Amazing finish. Super pure. Long. Amazing wine. So complex and mineral. — 14 days ago

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019

Moist earth, vanilla and red flower aromas. Pallet is full of black raspberry and black cherry fruit. Not many tertiary flavors, but there are hints of earth and smoke. Brimming with acidity. Soft tannins. Fruit forward but elegant. Solid QPR. — 15 days ago

Montmains Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2020

Holy Merde! Shy on the nose… light lemon yellow. But real complexity and astonishing balance. Classic brioche, lemon, ripe red apple, ripe juicy pear…touch reductive, but what a flavor ride… nice medium weight, long lingering finish.. classic, young match with crab, halibut, snapper…nice evidence for what Old World Chablis can bring to the party. — 14 hours ago

Bourgogne Côte d'Or Pinot Noir 2020

Another brilliant Bourgogne Cote d’Or from this rising young Burgundy young gun. Bright lifted nose of mid season cherries with some dark red cherries thrown in the mix and a lipstick like intensity. Floral. Like fresh dark roses. Lovely stoniness In the background. So pure and clean. Really just a remarkable nose. Luscious, deep and layered fruit. Palate is remarkable. Juicy, luscious, succulent and deep with huge red cherries, some darker red cherries and superb balance and incredible purity. This is better than the 19. Awesome awesome wine. Just so good. What one wants. That mouthfeel is a knockout. Huge mid palate and lovey treacly texture. So much mid palate amplitude. Stunning. As this airs the nose gets soil tones and you get even more flowers. This is a remarkable bottle of wine. Potting soil. But fresh and wet. So complex. — 16 days ago

As usual this is a preposterous wine and a preposterous value and the best of its kind. The fruit has a lipstick like intensity that boggles the mind. Black cherry, dark red cherries, dusty earth, pulverized rocks and so much more. There is a tiny berry fruit intensity that is a trademark of this wine. Smells like elite village burg. Palate is Uber concentrated with dazzling purity and freshness for days. Black cherry, dark red cherries and so much sapidity. Elegant, complex and so deep. Amazing black raspberry as well. This just keeps pushing on the finish. As this airs the limestone intensity just keeps getting more and more defined on the nose. Superb cut and delineation, with such unreal concentration. Never heavy always elegant and a finish you will not believe for this level. It’s superb in its compactness. Some wood shavings character now on the nose after air. From high school woodshop. Gorgeous fruit. This is just dazzling. A skoche behind the 19 but still the best of its class. Let’s see what air does. — 19 days ago

Juliénas Gamay 2018

Popped and poured; no formal notes. I found this bottle of the 2018 Juliénas to be good…but not on the level of enjoyment that I get from Lapierre’s standard Morgon. It’s very pretty and floral…and a bit natty with some barnyard funk reminding you that these wines see the lightest of touches. A nice, somewhat rustic wine. Perhaps I’m being a bit harsh…but the Morgon is so compelling in comparison. Drink now. — 2 days ago
