Les Saint-Jacques Rully Chardonnay 2018

2021/4. I feel like de Villaine’s Chardonnays have a bit more depth and savor than they did a decade ago - and they were certainly good then. This was lovely, with lots of fresh fruit and acidity but some sneaky stone, butter and hazelnut lurking. — 6 days ago

This one continues to deliver; pineapple, minerals, red citrus, elegance, and mild oak. — 3 days ago

Les Vergelesses Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Cherries and crushed marbles. Seems a little too light. Lacks secondary flavors of interest. — 19 days ago

15 for some reason I do not jive with his wines. I will try the 2015 Fichots in the next weeks.

15 is of a style. @Pinotman /// Andreas not for classicists.

Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía

One of my first Spanish wines. An old world wine with a beautiful nose of cherry and mineral earth, stone perhaps. And the palate supports that with a nuance of acidity that's both strong but very controlled and long. This wine I will remember. Balanced, light oak, and delicious. — 10 days ago

Les Fichots Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Better than the 15 Les Vergelesses. Quite modern for a Burgh and fruit / driven comes across a touch sweet; although plenty tannic. Mostly cherry 🍒 and raspberries. More stuffing than the Vergelesses. Good stuff just not my style. — 17 days ago

Clos de la Maréchale Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Bright red fruit and tea. This is high toned. Hint of 2011 greeness, but not unattractive. Good length to the finish but a bit rustic. There is a bit of funkiness that needs a couple hours to blow off and for the fruit to come through. Best after 3 hours in a small decanter. — 19 days ago

Les Fuées Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

This had rich ripe cherry, earth tones with a good core of mineral, Leroy like spices & violet showing lots of depth with a long finish. Sadly my last btl of 6 that were all stellar — a day ago

Côte St-Jacques Bourgogne Pinot Gris 2020

Vintage 2020 | Impressed. Power and spicyness and light footed elegance. Curious, from Pinot Gris. Paired with Jamon de Bellota from Ibérico pigs. And homemade Cantonese Kow Low Yuk. — 12 days ago

I didn’t even know they allowed Pinot Gris in Bourgogne!

@Tom Casagrande I believe this is the only grower who cultivates it, Tom

Pinot Gris is allowed in quite a lot of appellations in Bourgogne. It's used mostly as "cépage accessoires" with pinot noir. For rosé it's allowed as "cépage principaux" in several appellations (eg generic Bourgogne and Yonne). But quite rare indeed.

Les Vignes de Montgueux Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

This was very dry. Kind of austere, but I loved it. — 23 days ago
