Burgundy Pinot Noir

Château de Pommard

Clos des Loyères Maranges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Deep dark impenetrable burgundy color. Classic aroma profile featuring pretty dried cherries and cloves. A bit of raspberry and a touch of plums and dates. Give this plenty of time to decant and blossom you’ll be rewarded with some subtle hints of vanilla and blue flowers. This really does respond well to proper decanting, two hours or so. Wonderful complexity here and a nice subtlety.

As you can imagine, this is not a bruiser of a wine but rather a precise Pinot with a good bit of character now but it still waiting to reveal itself. With all that said it is quite approachable at this stage with a roundness. Nice rusticity on the palate reminiscent of freshly manicured lawn, an abundance of oak, and more delightful red berries. This is so nice now but has plenty of years left. Drink one now and hold the rest.

Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot

Echézeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Very expressive and complex nose of dark fruits, black cherries, an earthy side, the nose shows some age as well as the delicious palate even it is feels still young, rich and full, without excess or being too extracted or too ripe, big caveat is the very ordinary and short finish not worthy of a real Grand Cru. 91-92

Un nez expressif et complexe avec des fruits noirs, cerises noires cuites, terreux, sous bois, montre unpeu d’âge, en bouche aussi, un style plein et riche mais sans exces, beau vin mais sans la longueur d’un vrai Grand Cru. Ne vaut pas le prix demandé aujourd’hui.

Domaine Robert Chevillon

Les Roncières Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Been exploring a lot of younger Domaine Chevillon over this last year. But didn't write any notes. Doing that now. The 2017 Roncières is reliably wonderful. Bright florals, red fruit and delicate spice bouquet. Medium bodied, ample but focused fruit, with some acidity on the palate. Some might react that the fruit profile is a bit straightforward, but I think this lends this wine a lovely sort of simplicity and character on the palate is derived from fine grained tannins. Gently acidic and refined finish. — 3 days ago

Gorgeously red fruited nose. Cherries galore. Lovely hit of earth. Very pretty and smells silky. Palate is just terrific. Juicy, pure and super clean. Loads of sour and red cherries and a baby Pommard vibe here as it finishes very stoney. Lovely texture and a hint of rusticity. Just a great humble very satisfying wine. Long and juicy. — 10 days ago

Domaine Ramonet

Clos de la Boudriotte Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

The nose has spices, an earthy side, some red and dark fruit, that we also find on the medium plus bodied palate, a wild and expressive side, acidity is high, but the balance is still ok, a nice lengthy finish. 91-92

Un nez épicé, terreux avec des fruits rouges et noirs qui se retrouvent au palais aussi qui est de corps moyen plus avec un côté sauvage et une puissance à peine contenue, acidité assez forte en bouche sans toutefois déséquilibrer le vin, belle finale légèrement acidulée. 91-92

Tres Vieilles Vignes Auxey-Duresses Pinot Noir 2016

Expressive notes of dark fruits, spices and still some signs of oak, palate is medium bodied, fresh with depth and clean, nice texture, drinks easy, could benefit of 1-2 years in bottle, the 2017 drank earlier this year was even more ready. 89-90

Fruits noirs, encore une touche d’élevage, bouche de corps moyen avec une belle fraîcheur et une certaine profondeur en bouche, de belle texture, se boit très bien en ce moment mais 1-2 and encore en bouteille serait bien. 89-90

Gravières des Chaponnières Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018


Big ass Bourgogne that carries a big price tag. The more air time it gets the wine really opens up. Lots of fresh earth, ripe cherry, shaved orange rind, fresh herbs. Fortunate to have a giant bone in ribeye to enjoy. — 9 days ago

Ronceret Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Pierrick Bouley volnay 1er cru Ronceret.

Nose is earthy.

Palate is mid to late season cherry fruit. Elegant. A bit dusty in a good way. Pretty old school burgundy. Not quite that fassy just picked cherries Hines by a laser exploding in the mouth. But very good old school burgundy.

Bought from fass selections.

Nice, have a '13 that we bought from Perrick's mom when we visited, in our wine cooler for a very future date.
