Burgundy Pinot Noir

Domaine des Perdrix

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014

Elegant, and faily acidic. We let this decant for about 2hrs to let it open up a little bit. There was not a whole lot of structure to it - very different than one might expect from a Napa/Russian River Valley/Oregon Pinot Noir... not a fruit forward at all; however, it was light and loaded with spice, clove, anise, minerality, and earthy notes. It was certainly interesting to try and compare Burgundy to New World Pinot Noirs. — 7 days ago

Stunning nose. Meaty and gamey out of the gates with heady spices as well. Spice bazaar. Big bursting cherry fruits as well. So complex. An array of aromas. Dizzying. Palate is rich and ripe, with serious sap from the old vines. Intense and long. Brooding. Really wonderfully sweet and deep but needs 2-3 hours open to shine. Amazing velvety tannins and lingering spice. This is a knockout. — 2 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2008

Third bottle shared by our friends in Dijon. In the glass the color was muted crimson with the slightest bricking on the edge. I was surprised by how mellow the wine was for only being 8 and we all agreed that this was at peak and would not get better with much more time. Lean with flavors of tart cherry and wet gravel. Paired incredibly well with some incredibly stinky local Burgundy cheese. — 5 days ago

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Clos des Myglands Monopole Mercurey Premier Cru 2011

Excellent Red Burg. Perfectly straddles a delicate tightrope between rusticity and polish. Great savoriness and purity of fruit. Pours a bright pale/medium (-) intensity ruby core fading to an ever so slightly burnished red-orange rim. Medium (+) aromatics of bright cranberry and sour red cherry fruit, woodsy birch bark/sous bois, fresh roses, a bit of barnyardy, mushroomy funk, crushed gravel, and a tiny bit of subtle anise-y spice. On the palate, more cranberry and sour red cherry fruit, birch bark, fresh roses, a gravelly minerality, and a subtle dried mushroom umami. Medium (+)/high acid, light/medium (-) bodied with a lovely soft texture. Medium (-)/medium intensity of relatively fine grained tannin; could still resolve a bit further but not by any means coarse or overbearing. Alcohol is medium (+) and completely unnoticeable. Definitely got some more life left in it before it peaks but drinking very pleasantly now. Paired very nicely with candied walnut butter pork chops with roasted acorn squash. — 6 days ago

JCB Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Rosé No 69

REALLY nice Brut Rose! Nose was strawberry funk! Entry with quite a bit of wild strawberry, hint of watermelon, red cherry and grapefruit. This Sparkler had a ton going on. Great bubbles. EASY DRINKING, so pace yourself! This wine was a great aperitif that paired well with calamari and surprisingly well with fried goat cheese and seafood gumbo as well (although the chablis did pair better). Drink now! — 13 days ago

Domaine Taupenot-Merme

Bel-Air Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

This one will drink well for a long time. It felt so young for mature burgundy, so full of life. Black cherries, thyme, clove, and dried tea leaves on the nose - pallet showed raspberries, dried cranberry, nutmeg, violets, and a lingering finish. The color was beautifully garnet red, slight signs of a burnt orange rim, but a wine full of concentrated flavor and red still remains after 8 years. If you can find some, buy 3, drink one, forget about 2. Paired with fillet mignon, red wine jus, and roasted roots. — 10 days ago

Domaine Jean-Michel Gaunoux

Corton-Renardes Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1988

This is in a flat out great place now. After almost 30 years, time has tamed gaunoux. Still fresh and bristling but a lovely settled attack. Bursting with minerals and dark fruit. All that forestry stuff, but beautifully pure masculine fruit. Not hugely long on the finish but a really characterful burg — 8 days ago

Le Ban Saint-Aubin Pinot Noir 2014

Pretty funky upon opening. Horsey like a Raffault. But there is a sense of big cherry fruit lurking. Very floral as well. Some combo there of fresh flowers and horseshit. After 30-45 minutes the shit is gone and it’s all violets, earth and cherries. Awesome. Morel is magic. Palate is deep, raw like only Morel can be, with terrific freshness and acidity and a lovely rusticity. St Aubin Rouge are not the most elegant Burgundies but they have so much more than elegance. This wine is long. Really long. It’s a crazy wine that I think with 3-4 more years will really show well. This is like a young version of the 08. — 2 days ago

In a great place. Nose of earth, mineral, dank cherry fruits, spice, some dampness and dead leaves as well. Very classic. Palate is exuberant with tons of juicy fruit and big time cherry. Terrific lip smacking acidity and such nice purity. Outstanding. Balanced and poised. — 4 days ago
