Côte De Nuits, Burgundy

Échezéaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

This seemed flat & not correct so another btl was opened & although better it had the same profile. Martine acknowledged the 99 Ech always showed this way. This was my least favorite Echezeaux. — 4 days ago

Domaine Robert Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2016

Nose of raspberries, spices and a hint of flowers. Very fine, almost not noticeable tannins and a floral element in the mouth that is medium lenght and ends on licorice and flowers. Interestingly accessible today but lots of potential. More to hold than to drink. Highly recommended. Charles Lachaux does less new oak and less extraction, more whole bunches, and it shows. Very elegant overall. — 2 days ago

Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Beautiful color. At first we thought it was off but that quickly blew off. Slightly evolved nose but still in a lovely spot. Hoisin sauce, dark plum and dusty cherry on the nose. Fresh and supple on the palate. Long finish like silk. — 16 days ago

Echezeaux Pinot Noir 1980

The 80 & 93 vintage seemed to be great years for Jayer as their Ech & CP were some of best in the lineup tonight. — 4 days ago

Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2001

Once again, SC describes this nicely, so I'll leave his notes here:

One of those special and unique Burgundy. Extremely elegant, velvety, with that unique typical "Griotte" expression. Very precise. Unlike othee Grand Cru's from Dugat, the oak here is more than intergrated behind a gorgeous violet bouquet.

I thought this was wonderful. Blue fruited and very floral nose, with a touch of oak. Palate brings about some delicious spice, bright cherries and plums, and clear precision with the acidity and finish. There's a real rustic touch with the tannins, although very fine. Begs for even more age in my opinion, but drinks phenomenally now!

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2016

Took a bottle home following the tasting. One of my favorite regions of Burgundy. Elegant in structure, fruit forward, very approachable with mild tannins, notes of cherry, tart raspberry, pomegranate, mild spices, light oak, and earth.

What is your favorite Vosne-Romanee and producer? I'm interested to try more!

Aux Saint Jacques Nuits Saint Georges Pinot Noir 2017

Devastatingly awesome. Pungent and very deep nose. So pure. Stunning vivid fruit. Almost a lipstick stank to it. Bright red and black cherries but they are oozing cherry sap. Really blown away by the nose here. Palate is deep and vibrant with thick, dense black cherry fruit and imposing ripe but substantial tannins. Needs an hour to get there. But oh baby once it does. Exquisite purity and superb concentration. Lovely earthiness and intensity. Superb complexity, length and concentration. Awesome. — a day ago

Wow....hope to experience a glass one day! Enjoy!

Domaine Philippe Charlopin-Parizot

Bel-Air Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Dark fruited built on an acidic framework with firm but fine tannins. Interesting reductive ( in a good way) for a house that is reputed to use little sulfur. But this 1er has chops for sure (my first experience with Bel-Air), which immediately confirms that its neighbors are all quite “grand”! — 9 days ago
