Sous Roche Dumay Saint Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2020

Lyle Fass
9.6

The second vintage and wow this is stunning. Leaps and bounds better than the 19 and the 19 was a great effort. Nose is buttery and confectionary with stunning mineral depth. Smells almost chevalier or batard like. Hoisted up by its own Batard. Dazzlingly pure and my goodness this is just so ultra refined. Really penetrates my nostrils like the aromas are almost solid objects. Unreal. Palate is deep, rich and bracing. Wow the acidity on this is brilliant with icing on a cake texture and just so refined, classy and long my goodness this is long. So pure and so sappy. Amazingly clean. Just an awesome bottle of St. Aubin. Nose develops wet stones, fresh sea air and lemon drop. The balance here is exceptional. Treacly and elegant. Serious and playful while also being incredibly long. The length here is not to believed. This is one of the finest St. Aubins I’ve ever had. I can’t imagine why this is not a 9.7, but want to see what air can do to this.

Wow the cotton candy confection is just off the charts. Stunning. So clean. So airy. This is what white burgundy is all about. Fruit is coming around. Superb citrus and Meyer lemon. Some lime as well. Rieslingesque.

Aloxe-Corton Grand Cru Domaine Latour Pinot Noir 2008

Had this at a tasting and bought several bottles, aged well, just opened last one. Aged for about 12 months in French oak barrels (15% new). Ruby, brown edges, with aromas of red and black stewed fruits and complex spice. On the palate, flavors of layered fruit, ripe black cherry and raspberry with cedar, tobacco, herbs and nutty notes. Full soft tannins, balanced acidity, long ending with fruit and earthy character. Outstanding! Worth the wait! — 4 days ago

Les Perrières Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Floral et fruits blancs au nez, une bouche équilibrée toute en finesse, classe et élégance, sans être riche, possède une très belle texture, super bon en ce moment.92-93

Some floral and white fruit hints in the nose, very balanced wine with classe and elegance, finesse rather then weight but still has enough richness, very good right now.

Au Pied du Mont Chauve

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Pale golden straw. Immediate whiff of gunpowder wafts past lemon zest and warm juice undercoats; lemon verbena, living sage, chive, and colored pencil. Palatal silk evaporates to spongey pith of lime in a magically, porously, dry transformation shimmering with crystalline suggestions and smoky allusions.long and heartfelt reverberations beyond its last drops.

Domaine Coche-Dury (J.F. Coche Dury)

Meursault Chardonnay 2002

Light to medium gold in color, heavy like oil in the glass. Awesome nose. Notes of apricot, citrus, matchstick, wet stone, tan spice and some petrol. Coats the mouth with luscious fruit, with some fine grained acidity always in the background. Drink now or over the next decade or two. Love this stuff — 3 days ago

Les Combettes Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Shay A
9.2

A producer I’m not familiar with. Les Combettes combines the intensity of Puligny with the generosity of the Meursault Charmes, which it borders.

I slow ox’ed this for an hour or so before enjoying half the bottle, then re-corked the second half for the next day. Definitely no pre-mox here, thankfully. Day one sported a mellow profile…medium bodied with honeysuckle, lemon oil dripped over limestone, and a high acid quick finish. Day two showed really nice improvement…channeled a bit of a Mersault flair with its richer/more rounded texture showing lemon-honey and sea salt popcorn. I’d hold this 3-5 more years.

Domaine Berlancourt

Cuvée Les Equinces Bourgogne White Blend 2018

In some ways White Burgundy chose the tough life where success is measured against expert oak integration and that 'aint an easy thing to do well.

Les Equinces uses oak in the right amounts creating an upfront spiced vanilla lemon profile for first impressions.

But it's a wine that's good beyond oak influence. Personality hides for a bit, but let this decant and warm and sharp points resolve to soft textures. Vanilla lemon turns to Kentucky bourbon and cinnamon spiked graham cracker, fragrant white flowers.

@Ely Cohn 18 white burg is a vintage that a lot of people like to criticize, but all my people killed it.

Vincent Girardin

Les Narvaux Meursault Chardonnay 2016

Vincent Girardin continues the winemaking tradition of his father and grandfather before him. Aromas of crisp stone fruits with citrus notes, complex. On the palate apple and citrus flavors, lively with honey and spice, starting to develop butterscotch tones. Well balanced, long finish, complex ending with mineral tones. Nice! Will continue to impress with cellar age. — 5 days ago
