Burgundy Pinot Noir

Louis Jadot

Domaine Gagey "Le Chapitre" Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Prior notes still apply, wonderful bottle!

Nose has bright spring cherry (supermarket not farmers market) and a tinge of alcohol.
Palate has gravel-cherry, sweet, this started quite tannic but mellowed a bit in the decanter (2Hr). Drinking quite nice for an everyday Pinot, not overly complicated, but enjoyable.

A good pairing with Spaghetti Squash lasagna tonight, with our homemade tomato sauce. (A fun dish with heavily roasted squash, but we still need to fine tune the reduction of its liquid. The Squash has a lot of moisture, and we need to get more out on future versions. Third time is the charm, right?)

Domaine Philippe Charlopin-Parizot

Bel-Air Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Dark fruited built on an acidic framework with firm but fine tannins. Interesting reductive ( in a good way) for a house that is reputed to use little sulfur. But this 1er has chops for sure (my first experience with Bel-Air), which immediately confirms that its neighbors are all quite “grand”! — 3 days ago

Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Again the JCB collection was impressive. This Mazis was no exception. Surprised by how well it drinks right now. Deep garnet almost black in color. Finesse and focus on the palate. Deep black cherry, root beer and figs. Slight herb and mushroom on the finish. — 4 months ago

Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2001

Once again, SC describes this nicely, so I'll leave his notes here:

One of those special and unique Burgundy. Extremely elegant, velvety, with that unique typical "Griotte" expression. Very precise. Unlike othee Grand Cru's from Dugat, the oak here is more than intergrated behind a gorgeous violet bouquet.

I thought this was wonderful. Blue fruited and very floral nose, with a touch of oak. Palate brings about some delicious spice, bright cherries and plums, and clear precision with the acidity and finish. There's a real rustic touch with the tannins, although very fine. Begs for even more age in my opinion, but drinks phenomenally now!

Combe Du Pre Marsannay Pinot Noir 2015

Lyle Fass

Sexy fucking wine. Sexy is overused but I’d get in a hastily planned 3 month relationship with this wine that would end in bitter heartbreak. Gorgeous nose. Flowers, big cherries, lipstick vibe. Palate is ripe and opulent with lovely sucrosity and wonderful freshness. Silky tannins and great mouthfeel. Very 15 but also very alluring. Long finish. Wonderful mineral drive and very complex. Great today. — 7 days ago

Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru 2010

Cherry compote, red rose, green tea , and spiced aromas framed by exceptionally clean fruit flavors, good acidity and palate cleansing tannins. Deliciously good now; lots of life remaining. — a day ago

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2016

Took a bottle home following the tasting. One of my favorite regions of Burgundy. Elegant in structure, fruit forward, very approachable with mild tannins, notes of cherry, tart raspberry, pomegranate, mild spices, light oak, and earth.

What is your favorite Vosne-Romanee and producer? I'm interested to try more!

Champs-Pimont Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

! !Yarivyo Wine Score!

My last bottle and a pleasure! White burgundy as it should be and in a reasonable price. This beautiful Beaune is at its peak with a lovely gold color, on the nose notes of cream, oak, citrus, hint of tropical fruit and mineral, a round medium smooth body with pleasant acidity and a delicious finish. My score 89, drink up — 5 days ago

Domaine Vincent Ledy

Les Combes Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Nose has smokey blueberry jam, violets, blackberry, black cherry, cedar plank and faint sun-dried tomato.

Palate has bright black cherry with some tannic grip, ripe blackberry, dried lemon zest and wet limestone gravel.

This is a Bourgogne Rouge like no other, at ~$27 there is no equal, seriously. Decanting ~4 hours really opened the wine. I'm stunned, but should know better than that by now, Lyle brings the best bargains to be had on the market with consistency.
