Domaine Gagey "Le Chapitre" Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Prior notes still apply, wonderful bottle!

Nose has bright spring cherry (supermarket not farmers market) and a tinge of alcohol.
Palate has gravel-cherry, sweet, this started quite tannic but mellowed a bit in the decanter (2Hr). Drinking quite nice for an everyday Pinot, not overly complicated, but enjoyable.

A good pairing with Spaghetti Squash lasagna tonight, with our homemade tomato sauce. (A fun dish with heavily roasted squash, but we still need to fine tune the reduction of its liquid. The Squash has a lot of moisture, and we need to get more out on future versions. Third time is the charm, right?)

Vitteaut-Alberti

Blanc de Blancs Brut Crémant de Bourgogne Chardonnay

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has cold oak, yeasty bread dough, yellow apple flesh and cold limestone.
Palate has chalk dust on yellow apple, saline minerality and cold bread dough.
Medium-short finish, but quite pleasant on the nose.

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Terres Dorees Beaujolais Gamay 2017

Haven’t tasted in a while, have always been biased towards these crunchy, layered & elegant cru Beaujolais. ‘17 Brouilly version is nice & taut, that snappy freshness on entry. Black cherries & wild raspberries. With air really deepens & finds another level, much broader & long finish, strong mid palate, & solidly medium weight. Love it or leave it. Louis Dressner importer. Oh, and for about 20$. — 5 days ago

Remoissenet Père et Fils

Cuvée Spéciale Bourgogne Chardonnay 1997

Cuvée Speciale by Remoissenet. If you have the patience to keep a regional/village wine from a good producer in your cellar you can really treat yourself! Candied lemon, ripe pear, hints of oxidation (but in a good balanced way). The only question is ... who can wait that long?!?? — 4 days ago

Crazy, I do that for Riesling, not started a program to do that for Burg Blanc yet. So good for you!

@Severn Goodwin I can’t take credit - this was at a restaurant close by! I keep failing in that task.... patience is indeed a virtue.

Domaine Vincent Ledy

Les Combes Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Nose has smokey blueberry jam, violets, blackberry, black cherry, cedar plank and faint sun-dried tomato.

Palate has bright black cherry with some tannic grip, ripe blackberry, dried lemon zest and wet limestone gravel.

This is a Bourgogne Rouge like no other, at ~$27 there is no equal, seriously. Decanting ~4 hours really opened the wine. I'm stunned, but should know better than that by now, Lyle brings the best bargains to be had on the market with consistency.

Chaumes des Perrières Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2014

This scratches the Meursault itch at a Monday night pricetag. Wet, chalky gravel, lemon oil, hint of sweet toast. Lighter, of course, but still beautiful acids and Burgundian minerality. Great value. — 2 days ago

Domaine Pinson Frères

Mont de Milieu Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has seashells, sea spray, fresh strawberries, cold butter or cream, washed lemons, lemon juice and over-ripe green apple.

Palate has lemon creme, (light) strawberry, lemon zest, mild oak, freshly whipped cream and wet flint.

Nice wine, our first time having this particular 1er Cru vineyard, but...the oak, while it is sort of neutral, it is the underlying impact to the palate. I'm thinking they likely do not use new oak, but 2-4 year old barrels, but just a little much for my palate on a Chablis. I'm really a fan of very neutral oak or all stainless steel treatment.

24 Hour Update: Wood notes are gone, all about (light) lemon curd, limestone paste and cut strawberry today, wonderfulness.

Refreshing, quickly emptied this bottle.
