Les Femelottes Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2020

From vineyards within the Puligny-M appellation, this ‘basic’ Bourgogne Bkanc is a steal!
Fresh & supple with yellow apple, a hint of exotic fruit, some shortbread, but there’s also nice tension & purity here.
On the palate this poised, elegant, brilliantly balanced. So juicy & with great flow & depth. Drinking beautifully right now!
I’ve had quite some Puligny’s or Chassagne’s much worse than this!

Domaine du Clos de Sixte Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2020

Took 30 minutes to unwind, but then—luscious red fruits, toasted vanilla, ample medium body, and a grippy finish. Hoo yeah — 2 months ago

Les Beaumonts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1998

1998 vintage. Above age-appropriate fill. Great cork. Quite a bit of sed-some chunky, some powdery. Decanted and tasted after 15 minutes, 45 minutes and 1.5 hours. Respectable color. Still medium body. Nose a mix of thin, muddy, clay earth, morels and rhubarb. Flavors all that plus some muddled raspberry and a splash of black tea. Initially, a bit shy (9.1). Started to pick up steam at the second, 45 mins open taste. By 1.5 hrs, it was rolling. Could have used another hour in the decanter (as it may have yielded a 9.4) but the grabbing hands grab all they can. It's a competitive world. Can see this going another 7-8 years without noticeable, downward change but it wouldn't surprise me to find that extended to 10-12 years. 3.20.24. — 2 months ago

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2014

It shows quite clear GC features. Fineness but with robust. Drinkable, but much enjoyable if keeping more years. 2014 @, Fruit, 240424 — a month ago

La Guiraude Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 1995

A stunning nose that roars out of the glass…. Meat, iron, violets, sour cherry. Black pepper Fantastic. The palate doesn’t quite live up to the nose. Nice precise smoky fruit and a rather one dimensional finish. A wine of two halves. — 3 months ago

Les Enseignères Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2021

9.4

Outdoor tasting season is upon us on the east coast and I couldn’t be happier. Nose of lemon and lime zest plus lime fruit. Subtle notes of oak and iodine. Really compelling minerality and purity. Such a great vintage at Chavy. Palate is so energetic and full of lime, lemon and barely ripe green apple skins. So juicy and clean. Unreal purity and length. Excellent. So tangy with loads of bitter but and barely sweet citrus. — a month ago
