! !Yarivyo Wine Score!
8.9

Simply splendid village Bourgogne, this is a lovely wine that is definitely more complex and rich than expected with appealing notes of vanilla, oak, minerals, hint of tropical fruit and citrus, medium body, smooth, round creamy, delicious fresh finish. Simply elegant and pleasant. My score 89, drink to 2022 — 5 days ago

"Vaillons" Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

The 2016 Vaillons Chablis is a simply brilliant showing from Dauvissat, who has a reputation for producing some of the finest Chablis in the region and there is no exception in this difficult vintage. As this gorgeous wine slowly unwinds in the glass it releases pretty aromas of orchard and citrus fruits, followed by orange zest, honey blossoms and pulverized stones. It goes on to impress as it displays wonderful overall purity and focus through a beautifully textured palate and remarkably precise finish. Overall this is a marvelous wine that is showing wonderful energy and appeal in its youth, but should also evolve beautifully for years to come. — 8 days ago

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2015

Very interesting taste comparison the Roulot was more on the rich, opulent side of Burgundy While the Lafon was more Linear and austere. Both were beautiful treats needless to say! — 14 days ago

Bourgogne Aligote 2016

Absolutely gorgeous Aligote from PYCM. Bright and laser focused, with incredible minerality and acidity. Lemon zest, white floral blossoms and crushed stones persist through the vibrant finish. Amazing value and drinking beautifully. — 8 days ago

Domaine d'Auvenay Sous Chatelet Bourgogne Aligoté 2000

This is Aligote. Fresh and lively with a punch of sulfur and dazzling acidity and a backbone of limestone. On the palate limpid and precise with touches of lime and steel. Not as powerful through the midpalate as some but beautifully balanced and fresh. — 14 days ago

Moillard-Grivot

Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1964

Beautiful nose. Soft compressed cherry, faded plum, damson, soft and fleshy nose. This is classic aged burg. Still vital and alive. All the fruit is soft and seductive. Intensity but settled and pretty. Really good stuff. The finish is a bit truncated but this is gorgeous. — 10 days ago

Brut Crémant de Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Literally driving into their cellar in the Burgundy countryside through a tunnel in the side of the hill was an experience I won't forget. We did a nice underground tour of the operation and tried three or four of the wines. This one I found to be a very approachable style. I won't get into what it's not, which is tempting here. This is a sparkler that would be suitable for most any party. The focus is on the fruit here while still a dry style. I don't pick up much from the yeast, but for a dry, simple style at a reasonable price, this one's a winner! — 5 days ago
