Just brilliant. There is a zen harmony to these whites that is utterly magical. Nose of mineral, applesauce, apple spices, pear, sprigs of fresh grass just unreal and super unique. Not your typical white burg. Palate is just delightful. Saline and super mineral with green apple and unreal balance and purity. My god this is so ultra pure. Clean as a whistle with terrific, length, minerality and balance. Unreal long finish that is just perfect. What a great wine. — 12 days ago

@Pär Sjölinder yes it is but he can’t deal with Burgundian bureaucracy so I understand. And he’s still got the Aussie wine.

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Nuits-Saint-Georges Pinot Noir 2017

The 2017 Nuit-Saint-George village offering is sumptuous and rich, with strawberry liqueur, red and black cherry, balanced by white mushrooms, cola nut, and delicate acidity. Not at all dusty as with Tanzer’s 2016 tasting. This one might not need much time in bottle. Another lovely Meo. — 3 days ago

Stellar nose. Smoke, leather, truffle, bbq, super mineral, mint, forest floor, cassis, mineral, so clean, loads of cedar and pine, palate is even a bit young. So juicy and complex. Mineral and fresh. Big tannic spine. Complex and long. Can still use some age. Gorgeous now. — 11 days ago

Domaine des Pierres Sèches Sylvain Gauthier

Saint-Joseph Marsanne Roussanne 2015

Still young and needs lots of air. But then displays classic scents of yellow orchard fruit, waxy notes, and liquid minerals. Very minerally in the mouth. Nice persistence and the texture is a bit fat, as Roussanne can be, but not too much, and there’s also pretty decent acidity. A little bitterish note emerges in the long finish — 3 days ago

Aux Saint Jacques Nuits Saint Georges Pinot Noir 2017

9.4

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. — 2 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Clear garnet color with only slight bricking at the rim. Red cherries, spice, cedar, cigar box, old wood, and hints of bell pepper. Medium+ body, tannins fully integrated with good acidity, giving it a mineral mouthfeel. Medium+ finish. Ready to drink. — 4 days ago

Château Lilian Ladouys

Saint Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

This is a nice Saint Estèphe. Still feels young and needs air to come together. Ripe plums and blackberries, vanilla, cloves and some tobacco on the nose. Lots of ripe fruits on the palette. It shows plenty of acidity; at first a bit too much but with air it balances out. Well integrated tannins. Love it. — 6 days ago
