Domaine A.-F. Gros (Anne & Francois Gros)

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2011

Клюквенно-брусничный морс, красный грейпфрут, чуть медицинских трав, розмарин. Легкое тело с сочной кислотностью и едва заметными танинами. Естественно, напряжённо, тонко и прозрачно, с выразительной чистотой мякоти красных ягод. Элегантная натуральная простота. Выпивается незаметно. — 3 days ago

Les Grandes Coutres Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

Grapes from 3 plots bordering Meursault, vines up to 50 years old. Aromas of elegant ripe fruits with slight toasty notes. On the palate rich melon and lemon flavors with vanilla and creamy oak notes surrounded by a great mouthfeel. Lingering ending with fruit adding some mineral freshness. Very nice. Great value. — 10 days ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

Very nice
The oak is not overwhelming but it is supporting the fruit
Long finish, maybe not a great complexity

François Mikulski

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Bright, tart cherries, fresh cracked rocks, crushed dried leaves, cinnamon stick, white mushroom and pink peppercorn. Very solid for the price point which is par for the course with Mikulski. Give this an hour or two to open up. The fruit dominates on pop n pour. The secondary flavors need some air to surface. — 6 days ago

Domaine Bernard Defaix

Chablis Chardonnay 2015

Pale to mid Lemon in colour. Aromas of citrus, almond and hints of nougat. On the palate citrus verging on stone fruit. Absolutely delicious. Tasting more new world in this warm vintage. When they are as good as this for only $39AUD I cannot see the point in cellaring. On the 2nd night a little oyster shell and mineral on the nose. — a day ago

Maison Albert Bichot

La Madone Fleurie Gamay 1966

Ever wondered what a 50 year old Beaujolais tastes like? It was very Burgundian! I initially though Savigny from a colder vintage but it was almost impossibly light in colour and that telltale note of beetroot was there in the background. A surprisingly good 1966 Bichot Fleurie! — 2 days ago

Bourgogne Aligoté 2011

Stop asking questions and just try this. As with almost every wine from Leroy, gotta give this a few minutes to let the sulphery funk blow off. But once it does... clean and focused Meyer lemon curd, crushed rocks, and flint. Amazing that this “peasant” wine is rocking at 8 years old. Will go another 8 without even blinking. — 7 days ago

Eric, consider it on the list in Des Moines

Domaine des Marrans

Beaujolais Blanc Chardonnay 2016

2016 Burgundy... Do I need to say more? It's slamming good!

Nose is a saline solution with sweet green apple and light oyster shell.
Palate is incredible balanced acidity with Anjou pear and this ever lingering saline finish.

For certain, one of the best BoJo blancs to ever grace my glass!

Happy Valentine's Day 2019 to all.

24hr Update: Nose has subsided slightly, but the palate is going strong and picking up minor red fruit (strawberry) notes. I tend to pick up those red notes only in Chardonnay from Beaujolais, after about a day or two after opening, interesting.
