Côte De Beaune, Burgundy

Domaine des Croix (David Croix)

Beaune Pinot Noir 2011

Ripe cherry, medium-weight, nicely drying on the tongue with nice acid/tannin balance. Silky smooth with just a touch of forest-floor/mushroom earth to offset the cherry. Nice food wine in a friendly place of its development. — 2 days ago

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

Puligny-Montrachet, situated to south of Meursault & to north of Chassagne-Montrachet, shares with Chassagne a handful of the greatest white wine vineyards in the world. An array of aromas, somewhat exotic, yet delicate. Subtle fruit with wispy ripe stone fruits, intricate spice, vanilla with gentle nuttiness. Balanced acidity, wafts of oak on a lingering smooth mineral finish. Clay and chalky soils give this wine it’s firm depth! Age at least 8+ years! — 5 days ago

A nose that screams burgundy. Raspberry, cherry. So pungent and sprinkled with lovely dirt. Sous-bois if you will. Stunningly mineral and so aromatic. Age has helped this. Palate is sweet and dense with lovely finesse and wonderful velvety tannins. Epically long finish. Complex and still a bit of structure tells me this will be a long distance runner. Firmly mineral finish. — 4 days ago

Nice. Still got my one bottle!

Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils

Les Epenottes Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

My first exposure to any of Louis Boillot’s wines was his Pommard at Pierre Gagnaire in Paris, and I have been on the hunt for his wines ever since. This Beaune is extremely floral, full of bright red fruit and has a slight smokiness to it. Reasonably priced for a 1er Cru Burgundy and drinking so well for its age. — 9 days ago

A bit flinty and funky out of the gates. Some hazelnuts, but also a rich flinty character, that goes away with 5 minutes of air. Palate is so so elegant and scary refined. Wow. Such finesse and depth. Really remarkable. What a palate. So much mineral depth and freshness. Terrific juiciness and structure. Tangy, citrus in the finish. Has years to go. Great energy and density yet so finessed. — 4 days ago

Vincent Girardin

Les Vieilles Vignes Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2015

Vincent Girardin continues the winemaking tradition of his father and grandfather before him, and expanded the appellations in his domaine either through inheritance, purchase, or a system of leasing called "fermage." Aromas of stone and citrus fruits. The palate shows lemons with crisp apple, mineral & oak notes. This medium-body wine has good balance with integrated acidity, lingering, finishing smooth with a citrus mineral ending. Very Nice! — 9 days ago

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

Nose has lightly oxidized yellow apple peel, wet seashells, freshly cut pear, light creamy oak, fresh lemon pith and light honey.

Palate has light salinity, lemon skin, honey on oak slab and under-ripe peach.

Beautiful wine, great (medium) acidity, yet still young. Likely this will benefit with another 4-6 years of rest. Oliver Lamy is one of the best Saint-Aubin producers, and this bottle is proof, chaotic vintage and still shining.

Decanted ~3hr. Easter 2019.

Domaine de Montille

Le Cailleret Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Beautiful white gold color in the glass. Very nice hints of green apples and citrus on the nose. Light to medium bodied wine with tastes of buttered popcorn, green apples, lemons and a slight hint of spice. Luscious acidity tells me this wine has a very long life. Pairs very nicely with my Chilean Sea Bass tonight. — 6 days ago
