Find me a better Chorey. Complex and fragrant nose of raspberry coulis, smoke, tin, leather, smoke, minerals. So complex. Amazing raspberry cake. Stunning aroma. Palate is ripe and sweet with slippery fruit but firm tannins on the back end. Long finish and great quality tannins but firm tannins. Really long and raspberry hits along the way. Fantastic balance and purity. Age is key for Ledy and I see this improving a lot over the next 10 years. Terrific concentration and power. Also shows great finesse despite being a big bodied wine. — 10 days ago
Very clean and beautiful medium dark red robe. Delicate flowery nose followed by a discrete but balanced and elegant mouth that surprises by the long end and tightness. Its really lovely juice now but lors of potential for in a few years. Highly recommended. — 3 days ago
Light gold and heavy. Angular fruity nose. Notes of apricot, tangerine, slate stone, cardamom and tan spice, some peach. Huge impact in the mouth. Rich and powerful. Long finish. Chewy. Fine grain acidity. Needed 2+ hours of air to blossom. Great now but can improve with more age. — 4 days ago
The 2014 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet is an absolutely sensational showing in this vintage. As this stunning chardonnay slowly begins to unwind it releases striking aromatics of fresh orchard fruits, lemon oil, citrus blossoms, crushed stones with underlying hints of oyster shell and flint that all develop beautifully in the glass. On the palate this possesses a simply gorgeous texture, with wonderful overall balance and precision. This continues to display remarkable combination of acidity and minerality all the way through the pretty finish. While this is clearly on the youthful side, it is still extremely impressive, especially if allowed some time to unwind. The 2014 should go on to age brilliantly for quite some time, and should certainly become even more compelling as it develops over time. — 15 days ago
Nose has mashed early season cherry, (light) moist loam soil, ripe cherry, moist leather, decaying rose and dried-sweetened cranberry.
Palate has lightly tart cherry, under-ripe raspberry, wet cedar, (light) anise notes and wet granite pebbles.
Smooth tannins, but this wine took a little bit to come to life again in our glasses this evening, delicate, maybe too delicate. I can't tell if this was a should have been enjoyed 5 years ago wine, or needs 5 more years wine...
Decanted ~4 hours, then double decanted for servicing tonight at dinner. Our first Volnay (lieux-dits) from Meursault, just the opposite side of the road from Volnay, but not Volnay! — 4 days ago
