Fruits rouges assez murs, framboises, une bouche équilibrée avec une profondeur surprenante pour ce niveau, super beau rapport qualité prix. 89-90

Gorgeous ripe red fruits, raspberries, a balanced and deep palate for the level, incredible QPR.

Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2018

Un classique pour moi, fruits rouges mur, cerises aussi, notes terreuses, un peu de vendange entière perceptible qui apporte une belle fraîcheur, acidité parfaite avec une belle finale généreuse sans accrocs, a besoin de temps mais quel beau potentiel. 90-91

A classic every year for me, gorgeous ripe red fruit, cherries, earthy tones too along with obviously whole clusters that being freshness, nice acidity and very nice tannins on a long delicious finish, needs time but great potential.

Chapelle-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2013

Joli nez expressif de fruits rouges, framboises, canneberges. Une bouche aérienne, pure, toute en fraîcheur et finesse, grande classe, très belle texture, pas la plus puissante ni la plus profonde mais avec suffisamment de matière pour en faire un bel ensemble, assez bonne longueur. 93

Nice expressive nose with scents of red fruits, raspberries and cranberries in particular. The palate is gorgeous, fresh, elegant, very classy, pure and precise flavors, not the most powerful or dense but showing a nice texture and a decent length (at best) on the finish for the level.

Les Lavières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Lyle Fass
9.3

Have not had since 2019. Nose is brambly with a cherry melange. Very earthy. Some wood shavings. A bit aromatically closed for now. Palate is juicy, very concentrated and sappy with great purity. Really long but also seems backwards. But terrific fruit and intensity. Very very sappy. Needs a few more years but you can the low yields of 16 gave this wine density and tons of material.

After an hour this has softened up and is super juicy and the tannins have calmed down. 9.2 to 9.3. Lavieres is such good terroir.

Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2018

Finally tried Kuheiji’s Burgundy project (NB: their efforts in France yielded one of my most memorable sakés in 2019 - the Camargue; notes on Delectable). This was quite the changeling - started off reductive with a red-fruited palate, light airy touch, juicy acidity, and no noticeable oak. Combined with the hint of fruit sweetness in the back end, I just shot straight for Beaujolais in my blinded guess. Should have waited as my mistake became quite apparent over dinner. With air, the wine took on a darker/black fruit profile and showed obvious signs of oak treatment, though well-integrated. It was all blackcurrants, plums, raspberries, cinnamon, dark chocolate, cedar, and a hint of earthiness/minerality (appellation?). The palate remained airy and juicy, with that fruit sweetness in the finish perhaps indicative of the warm vintage. I enjoyed this as it had energy, though DC found the wine a little too oaky for his liking and KK noted some bottle variation with this being a weaker pull. — 6 days ago

Aux Faulques Côte de Nuits Villages Pinot Noir 2019

Encore superbe dans la version 2019 cette fois, du fruit rouge à revendre, bouche assez large et puissante mais avec une belle texture assez dense, bel équilibre par contre, a besoin de temps bien sur mais un autre sérieux CdN Villages. 91

Very nice once again in the 2019 version this time, red fruit, ripe raspberries in particular, palate is large, deep, dense and got some power, still good balance, a serious CdN Villages.

Château de Pommard

Clos Marey-Monge Pinot Noir 2016

Medium Ruby with complex aromas of ripe red fruits, baking spice and cedar notes. On the palate layered flavors of ripe cherry, strawberry and blackerry with notes of cacao, vanilla, spice and oak. Fine rustic tannins, still tight, long savory finish, ending with fruit, sweet spice and slight earthy mineral notes. Very nice! — 5 days ago

Vieille Vigne Les Gruenchers Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Gorgeous garnet, star bright reflectivity. Rim to rim continuity. Cedar dusted black cherry and strawberry glow warmly in a vanilla and baked cran and ripe red currant dappling. There are red apple leanings and roobios-tulip whispers in a complex and seductive nose that stoops in bushes of thyme and all spice pods. Rich mouthfeel exhibits bits of its green youth, but has unveiled to reveal its abundance with a lengthy decant. Tart cherry and sweet tobacco, tart raspberry essence, dried violets and rose petal, dried strawberry and beet soaked thyme. Grossly underrepresented in this assessment, as the whole is like a wondrous river in a florid wood undulating with ripples of fallen blossoms. Astounding.

9.9

This is a Chambolle-gasm! Wow. My nose is thanking me. So floral. So so so floral. Wow. This nose is perfect. Gotta get that out of the way. 10.0. Geez. What a gift this nose is. Roses. This might have the most intense florals I’ve ever smelled. There is luscious mid season cherry fruit and also some black cherries. Unreal limestone background. It doesn’t get better. It does not. There is no way. The freshest, purest fruit ever. What a palate. Amazing creamy texture. So juicy and complex. Tangy and young but so silky and long. Sweet fruit but not that sweet. Wow this is balanced. Just a genius bottle of wine. Finish is a bit clipped but it will come around. — 9 days ago

Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2018

12.5%. At 40bucks a bargain these days. Rough around the edges but otherwise a great wine with dark cherry notes, lime, back palate kaffir lime, tart, hint cigar box and a touch of herbs (my guess is some whole cluster), quite dark. I would suggest drink now with a decant. Quite smooth after some time (I hate this word). — 4 days ago

Was the finish dry? Or was it sweet? (Riff on smooth)

Ok i did not know that 😬 It was not sweet. This is one of the very few affordable Burgh producers left.
