Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1995

Dark tawny. A nose that puts a smile on your face. Sandalwood, ripe bing cherries, dark moist earth, lots of spice and some rhubarb. Velvet touch as it coats the mouth. In a great spot. Sadly my only bottle of this. — a day ago

Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2004

Refined, enjoyable and impressive. Maintains its natural color and looks elegant. A sensational combination of lively light fruits and a present structure of earth and tannin that maintains its balance, control and texture. Unexpected how good this is. — 4 days ago

@Delectable Wine : This is the Denis Chaput L’Ombre d’Armand champagne. I didn’t see it in the database.

A wonderful bottle gifted to me by my good friend
@Bryan Kesting!

This was my first experience with this producer. Bottled in May 2010 (so, assuming ‘09 vintage) and spent 8yrs on the lees, ultimately disgorged in mid 2018! Wow. 75/25 Pinot/chard.

First impression here is that this reminds me of the older NV Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve champagnes, but maybe even more rich and toasty. Aromatically it has notes of lemon cream, almond scone, and a unique caramel delights type finish. Not sure of the dosage here, but I’m assuming somewhere around 5-7g/l as the palate has a hint of sweetness. All fruits are honeyed with nougat, and I’m assuming some use of oak for aging due to the vanilla notes. Rich mousse. Leans towards oxidative but doesn’t have that sherry type flair. Best on the more cold side so that all parts can meld together nicely. “Delicious”, according to Mrs. A...and I agree.

Domaine Cecile Tremblay

Tres Girard Morey St. Denis Pinot Noir 2013

Bright and dark rubi robe, asian spices, dark cherries and violettes followed by a dense and structured mouth that is opening up. Mme Tremblay does some of the very finest burgundies these days and this one is top notch. — 11 days ago

Even with a long double decant this wine was still tight. Eventually it did open up with lovely fruit underneath all the structure. — 2 days ago

Maison Albert Bichot

Les Sorbets Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Pinot Noir

Fun drinking if perplexing terroir notes (herbal, floral, spicy). Maybe all secondary without the fruit to marry it all? Cross St. Estephe with burgundy…? I’d drink it again but with…maybe pigeon or squab. — 13 days ago
