Color : Red
Wine estate : Philippe Cordonnier
Designation : Bourgogne
Name : Pinot Noir
Country : France
Vivino : 4/5
Note : Cordonnier and his pinot noir are always a pleasant moment to live and enjoy. A ruby color, a gooseberry and floral nose, an aromatic taste with a very good length. A final on the red fruits and a freshness in totality, a delight!
Cordonnier et son pinot noir sont toujours un moment plaisant à vivre et à déguster. Une robe rubis, un nez de groseille et floral, un goût aromatique avec une longueur très bien. Un final sur les fruits rouges et une fraîcheur en globalité, un délice !

A top vintage. Dark. Cola nose. Rich, dark cherries, hint of licorice, lacks secondary flavors of interest but a really nice example of a village wine. Not overly complex. This wine is ready drink now. From the Meritage wine store in Encinitas. A good buy for the money. A little rustic. — 2 days ago
Lunch continues: - this wine smells like utopia. It tastes like unicorns eating cotton candy!? Wow elegant absolutely perfectly balanced mouthful. Maybe a urologist can fix us after this infant beauty! Soft but takes hold and goes on for a long time. Ref cherries and raspberries. All I can say is WOW! — 6 days ago
I really like Amelie's wines. She's been doing everything right since taking the reins and the wines are getting better and better with every vintage. This bottle, however, was not of standard I would say. Perhaps an off-bottle.
Right out of the bottle, VA was a touch high for my liking. Hints of baked fruit might indicate improper storage (although, unlikely with this merchant). Acid, while sufficient, was disjointed. Good fruit once the baked elements passed, centred around the red spectrum. Floral tones, forest floor, hint of spice, but kinda lacking in minerality. Not the best Berthaut I've had. Chicken was excellent 9.1/10 — 3 days ago

All wines tasted blind.
That’s 2nd time I taste this lovely 2012 1er Cru. Powerful, intense, ripe red berries over spices. Youthful character w/ amazing freshness & expressiveness. Drinks well now & will for 10+ yrs.
Grapes aren’t destemmed, fermented in steel, aged 18mo in 50% new barriques. Blend of younger vines from Clos de Lambrays w/ 1er Cru Clos Sorbet adjacent to the estate. Tiny production of 8-10K per year makes it a rare find. — 6 days ago
Seemed right for 🇨🇦 Thanksgiving bird. Took almost an hour to resolve with air, then a dark, brooding black-fruit and espresso ground nose with stemmy notes. Pure and focused, this was dominated by concise notes of dark oak, woodsy tannins and deep black and red fruit. Class in a glass. — 7 days ago
Young young young! But Hoo boy, this is gawgeous. Nose is spicy, floral, hint of wood and you can tell there is incomparable depth. Every 10 minutes another layer is revealed. More fruit comes as air penetrates. The 15 shows more. Super concentrated and intensely structured with dazzling purity and a taught, intense structure. Very very pure and so so long. This is brilliant now but in 10 years, this is profound. Stunning. — 6 days ago

Here comes the real stuff! Reserved at start, but top breed spotted right away. You can’t miss with it. It has pretty much of everything you expect from GC: depth of aromas, complexity, good concentration of fruits, multilayer & finesse.
‘11 is odd year, it drinks OK already, but this one will evolve w/ years. Drouhin sources fruits w/ low yield vines: 36hl/ha. Delicate work with oak (20% new 14-18mo). Delicious wine w/ long lasting finish. — 6 days ago
Easily, the most beguiling bottle of young Nuits I’ve had. Dense with fresh fruit and fine, present structure. 2015 reds impress again, and with the pedigree of Cathiard, this bottle really blew me away, it went from elegant and pretty into something more wild and feral, before coming back again. — a day ago
Nose has almost a hint of cinnamon. Dusty cherry spice with a hint of cherry liquor on the palate. Still tannic. Needs another 3 years. Bought from fass selections. ... after 90 minutes this cherry liquor cherry licorice grandmas attic thing starts to happen. This could be epic in 3-5 years. Quien sabe? — 3 days ago
