9.3

Old reliable strikes again. Nose of Apple, pear tart and loads of minerals. Some intense secondary minerality as well. Gorgeous and super clean. Palate is crisp and clean with lovely balance and purity. Very fresh. Really juicy and a wonderful tactile sense of grip. So compact. Delightful. — 6 days ago

A Lyle Fass wine. Drink up this is the 14’-

Clos Sorbè Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Very reticent on the nose even after 1.5 hours in a decanter
It gives a nice fruit in the end, a cherry, lavander, tobacco, cola, iron, watermelon skin and just one more little bit a the time every five minutes. Altogether quite complex and enjoyable nose. The mouth is better, little tannic at the end, but also fresh and long flavour
The colour says still a little purple in the edges🤷🏻‍♂️
A wine that will probably find its peak in 8/10 years at least , but that can quite easily last another 20

Les Grands Champs Cuvée Unique Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

Like biting into a dark red cherry and subsequently biting your lip in the process; plush cherries, blood & iron, and manure. Only in the realm of wine are such qualities desirable. — 3 days ago

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1993

Nice ruby-tawny center with reddish amber rims. Dark and brooding, but mostly translucent. Fruit forward and attention grabbing nose. Notes of tart cherry, rhubarb, brown spice, garden soil and a little dried cranberries. While it has a little tartness in the nose, it is luscious in the mouth. And with air over the evening more fruit comes out of hiding but is always in balance against a firm structure. Don’t have much experience with the Mazis terroir myself but this was a great data point and really good tonight. — 9 days ago

Les Dames de Vergy Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir 2013

Nose of cedar, red raspberry, juiced cherry, cranberry and wet leaves.

Palate has rehydrated cranberry, partially dried cherry, raspberry juice, unsweetened cranberry juice, early spring strawberry and light, loamy earth.

Slightly grippy tannins, otherwise a very smooth finish, medium length. Our first go around with this producer. I bought at a local shop tasting event, decanting this was the way to go. The fruit was solid when I first tasted, but the tannins seemed to get in the way. You'll (generally) never get to taste a bottle at a walk around that has had the proper air, so you need to go on faith and experience some times. I'm not disappointed with this bottle tonight, decent show. $25

Another 3-5 years of patience will do no harm to this bottle, likely benefit.

Roncevie Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

Very reductive right now. But in terms of weight, attack, structure, acid and finesse this is the best young Roncevie I’ve tasted among the last six vintages. I look forward to checking on this in a year, should show excellent bottle development given the components that are there now. — 10 days ago

Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1997

This was just stunning. One of those rare but complete Burgundy moments you dream about...
By a good head the best bottle of Burgundy I’ve had in a long time (from any producer, including a number of DRC La Tache etc.). A rare purity of fruit and intent - with a focused, peacock-tail like depth and length that just went on and on. A wonderful mix of redcurrents, raspberries, rhubarb, white pepper, and pomegranates, with a superb cut of scintillating acidity. The kind of wine that puts all the modern over-ripe Burgundies produced today into sharp focus. Why on Earth would any sane person aim for something other than this...
