Burgundy Pinot Noir

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. — 2 days ago

Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2012

Hedy’s main entree, Duck Confit - Bread Pudding made with Brioche, Bried Cherries, Kale, Nutmeg, and Mushroom Puree.

I brought three Burgundies with me. This was good with a dark seasoned Duck Confit. However, the 2012 Gevry-Chambertin hit the fruits notes in the Bread Pudding made with Brioche, Bried Cherries, Kale, Nutmeg, and Mushroom Puree over the Duck Confit.

Dominique Laurent

Clos de la Roche Pinot Noir 1996

Nice tawny color. Great nose from the get go. Bright candied red fruit, spice, dark soil, cedar wood, and rhubarb notes. In the mouth it’s smooth with integrated tannins and softened acidity. Voluptuous. Another 96 red burg that is ready for consumption but has the stuff to last for years to come. — 8 days ago

Volnay Pinot Noir 2016

Mos def young. I’d wait 3 years. Nose is why you buy volvay. Cherry and earth. Palate is tight but it has the stuff. Cherry, cherry cough syrup ( in a good way) acidity. Licorice. Very good. Should be great in 3 years. Bought from Fass selections. As this opens the fruit is coming out. And some like godly licorice. This has upside as it ages. Which is pretty crazy given the qpr today. ... this really needs a 90 minute decant at this point. At this point lush dense cherry fruit Almost like it has some chocolate but it doesn’t if that makes sense. — 2 days ago

Hedy’s main entree, Duck Confit - Bread Pudding made with Brioche, Bried Cherries, Kale, Nutmeg, and Mushroom Puree.

I brought three Burgundies with me. This was good with a dark seasoned Duck Confit and was a favorite amongst the group. I think because it was like Goldilocks...this porridge was just right with both the entree and side.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Les Gaudichots Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1929

Delicate edges with a rose center. A subtle nose with spice, soy, roses, a bit of stink. There’s a salty freshness to this still and gorgeous soft presence. A hint of mint and drying notes on the finish. Pre La Tache. From the Doris Duke cellar. This is unbelievable. — 3 days ago

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

Revisiting a bottle we last tasted in the intimate chateau of the Girard's in Spring of 2018.

Nose has the brightest fresh cherry note of any village Burgundy appellation, fresh Thanksgiving cranberry dressing and moist leather.
Palate has insane/deep cherry for days, dried citrus peel, grippy tannins and a long finish. Great structure and built for the long haul.

Photos of the cool/moist barrel cellar of the chateau, older bottles collecting cellar mold, the new winemaking facility out at the rear of the property and our bottle of the evening.

Opening this too soon for sure, but damn 2016 Burgundy is incredibly tasty and it's hard to hold back! Buy all your can afford, seriously.

Domaine Humbert Frères

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Valentine's day....time for pinot and pizza! Decanted 1 hour. A forbidding dark ruby red color. On the nose: Earthy, red fruit, floral, mushrooms, cinnamon...all jump out of the glass. Taste: Dark cherry, spice, tobacco, minerals....a power Burgundy from 60 year old vines. — a day ago

I brought three Burgundies with me. This was stellar with a dark seasoned Duck Confit. You can’t go wrong with Pommard and Duck Confit.
