Burgundy Pinot Noir

Louis Jadot

Domaine Gagey "Le Chapitre" Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Just opening and decanting now, sticking with Burgundy again tonight. As it happens we had another Jadot (Dom. Gagey) bottle in the cellar, thought the Ladoix blanc was the only one previously.

Nose of bright spring cherry, supermarket not farmers market, tinge of alcohol.
Palate is gravel-cherry, sweet, this started quite tannic but mellowed a bit in the decanter. Drinking quite nice for an everyday Pinot, not overly complicated, but enjoyable. I'd say this bottle could hold easily for 6 years past vintage.

A good pairing with burgers hot off the grill tonight. Burgers are an interesting meal at our house, cats seem to like the aroma, so if you're not watching, paws will be sneaking up on your plate from an adjacent chair. 😺😼😺😼

24hr Update: Acidity had mellowed, I enjoyed the wine a little more after 3-4 hours of air than today, but was a great pairing with grilled pork chops tonight.

Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

I believe this is the Sans Soufre Cuvee in 2015, the Bourgogne Vieilles Vignes. Out of this world nose. Just stunning. Sick nose. Big ripe mid to end of season red and black cherries. So pure. Juicy and so pure with lovely, lithe cherry fruit and an elegant dusting of tanning. So juicy and lovely. — 15 days ago

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1992

After pulling a stunning bottle of 1985 Faustino I Gran Reserva last night I was anxious that I might be pressing my luck with Joseph Drouhin’s 1992 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru. There was no need to be... I hit the 25 year red burgundy jackpot. Wow.

Exotically perfumed with a smoldering character that features a smoky and savory mix of lavender, earl grey, clove, grapefruit peel, cedar, and sappy red fruit. Everything translates to the palate with surprising focus that’s driven by lifting acidity and loads of savory undertones that blend an intoxicating mixture of piney herbs, earthy tobacco, and lively limestone minerality. The satiny texture not only heightens the depth of flavor, but pushes the seamless finish out a few more beats. Stunning.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013

First red I have tried from François Mikulski, who resides in Mersault - his whites are beautiful, and this one doesn't disappoint either. Gorgeous juicy fruit aroma, full of tart, tightly wound red fruit, mushroom, and foliage, with pink peppercorn and clove spice. — 9 days ago

I’ve often said this on Delectable., if I could only drink 1 bottle for the rest of my life it would be a Richebourg. Simply Anazing! We also enjoyed a 71 La Romanee but I haven’t had time to post it yet. That bottle was glorious as well. It was drinking perfectly 👏👏👍👍👍.
Simply Amazing or giving it a 10 doesn’t begin to express how spectacular it was to have a side by side of 59 Latour, 71 La Romanee & 90 DRC Richebourg!!! And to top it all off we got the party kick started with a Batard Montrachet and magnum of Krug Rose. Simply amazing!!!

Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2014

Spices weren't detected, just beautiful pure red fruit pouring through. Trademark candy and herbal notes were present as well albeit subtle. Most people guessed Gevrey Chambertin 2015. Big fan of their style, but sadly prices have only been rising. I'm told their 2015 is a notch up compared to this vintage. Preferred this over the Hudelot Noellat Vosne Romanee 2015 we drank prior to this bottle. — 5 days ago

Domaine Dujac

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

The result of whole berry fermentation after 22 years. All the sharpness of skins and seeds has turned to richness and depth. The complete essence of the grape. Wish I had bought so much more. Can’t wait to try the Clos St. Denis. — 5 days ago

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Nose is a little toasty oak, blueberry juice, and blackberry.

Palate has oak-like cherry but very restrained on woody aspects, mid-season supermarket cherry, ripe plum, red raspberry, blackberry, TBD mineral, perfect acid levels!

I want to drink everything I have at this level, decanted for over one hour and this is absolutely perfect, nothing in the way of enjoyment. Pierrick Bouley is genius.

24hr Update: Nice giant (size-wise, not overpowering, the large sized berries have a more subtle flavor) blueberry flavor. Oak is more noticeable today, but not obtrusive to the red/blue fruits, a gentle compliment, perfect today.

Good notes. Blind tasted would you get Burgundy or new world?

@Michael Herzog Burgundy for sure for me, I tend to notice 'new world' showing more richness to the fruit. This is very respectful.
