Côte De Nuits, Burgundy

Domaine de L'Arlot

Au Leurey Côte de Nuits Villages Pinot Noir 2017

Wonderful wine. Needed some time to open up... oak then integrated; great acidity. As an added bonus, had a great friend actually filter this wine, when he was working at the domaine. A pleasure to drink—wish I had another bottle. — 10 days ago

Another one to history. Delicious. So balanced and juicy. Age does wonders. Can’t wait to open his 1er lost somewhere in the cellar. — 5 days ago

Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2001

I picked this bottle up and put it down trying to decide if tonight was a special-enough occasion. In the end, glad I leaned this way. Perfectly mature, and better than.my past btl from a bit over a year ago. Helped to warm up a couple of degrees above cellar temp. On the nose: damp earth, floral perfume, touch of brown sugar, black raspberry, tea leaves, asian spice...a panoply of flavors. On the palate, lovely acidity, tart cherry, great density, hi-toned wild strawberry, mineral notes, sea salt..fantastic complexity. Tannin still showing grip on the finish, but this is perfect aged red burg for my palate. — 6 days ago

Le Clos Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2016

It's been a while since I last used Delectable mainly because I haven't been drinking much (thanks for the kind reminder @Delectable Wine). The whole COVID situation has made it a whole lot harder to find good wines, especially in my hometown. Fortunately, we stumbled upon a list at a restaurant whose owner happens to be an avid wine lover too. While we definitely had to pay a premium for this bottle, it was so good to finally drink a well-stored red in the tropics, and a favourite producer at that.

Typical Duroche elegance, marked with distinct village characters and the vintage's fruity exuberance. The nose is ripe and generous, with fresh black cherries, crushed strawberries, pretty lavender charm, and a touch of earth. A whiff of volatile acidity seems to lift the fruit here. The palate follows with plush and supple texture, darker fruits taking centre stage, some warm spices, and a snappy finish. Expected a little more mineral crunch and a redder fruit profile, but this was still so easy to drink. Transparent and pure. Definitely qualifies as a red kabi.

Domaine Robert Gibourg

Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2015

Second take on this one in the same vintage. Prior notes apply for the nose which shows barrel and oak rather strongly along with a wonderful, ripe cherry and some hay. The palate is good with a nice acid backbone creating a frame in which that nice ripe cherry can be in full effect. There is width and grip, and some tannins to kick things in the rear, they deliver a slightly drying, dusty mouthfeel that gives way to a very long cherry powered finish. We had it along some quite spicy (let's face it hot) chicken drums and it stood its ground. Good one. — 11 days ago

Best young Cabottes ever. Knockout nose of lipstick like intense bright and vivid cherry fruit. Lovely earth tones as well. Really jumps out of the glass. Palate is decadent and ripe with awesome mid season cherry fruit and great richness allied with just ridiculous freshness. Great. 18 so good at lower levels for early drinking. What a mid palate and terrific balance. Julien nailed this. — 14 days ago

Domaine Fourrier

Les Goulots Vieille Vigne Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Wow, what a beauty. Decanted for 2 hours, intensely aromatic, precise and energetic showing black raspberries, candied red cherries, flowers, hints of orange peel and packed with minerals. Finishes with exceptional length. The tannins are present and firm but the wine’s superb balance along with the combination of Fourrier’s style and the ripe vintage make it in a wonderful place now and with a certainty to improve with age. — a day ago

Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux

Vieilles Vignes Nuits Saint Georges Pinot Noir 2017

Pale ruby hue, pink rim variation. Relatively thin, no noticeable tears. Nose offers bright cherry, rhubarb, strawberry, potpourri, lavender, white pepper, delicate barnyard notes. Palate is consistent and yet offers hibiscus tea and lavender notes. Overall, an elegant Pinot with moderate complexity and a medium plus finish.
