Chassagne-Montrachet Pinot Noir 2017

I miss the tastings with this semi-confinement we are still in and stole the idea of @Benoit Duhamel here, so we made one at home with my son and my wife who are both wine fanatics as I am too. We chose 6 red Burgundies Villages, 3 Côtes de Beaune and 3 Côte de Nuits and we tasted these blind, each of us giving ranks and points for each wines. Tasting blind usually doesn’t lie and it can bring numerous surprises which it did in that case. All wines were fo a good level here, no bad wines and all were fun and good indiviually but the results were pretty clear cut in terms of the Côte de Beaune winning this battle.

1- Chassagne-Montrachet villages 2017 Jean-Claude Ramonet 32 pts
2- Volnay Vieilles Vignes 2017, Henri DeLaGrange 28 pts
3- Auxey-Duresses Très Vieilles Vignes 2017, Alain Gras 26 pts
4- Chambolle-Musigny Les Véroilles 2017, Bruno Clair 20 pts
5- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017, Lucien Boillot 12 pts
6- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017 Les Évocelles, Louis Boillot 8 pts

The Ramonet: nose of spices, cinnamon, red fruit, animal, gets more complex and extremely aromatic and fun with air. Freshness and vivid fruit with a nice finish, fairly long on delicious red fruit and spices. What a threat! My no 2. 91-92


On s’ennuie des dégustations et j’ai bien aimé l’idée de
@Benoit Duhamel , merci Benoit. Alors s’en est fait une à la maison à trois (en respectant les règles bien sûr). Nous avons choisi 6 Bourgogne Villages Rouges 2017, 3 Côtes de Beaune et 3 Côtes de Nuits, nous avons dégusté à l'aveugle et accordé des points à chaque position, il n’y avait aucun mauvais vin dans le lot et tous étaient très bien si bu individuellement, mais la dégustation à l’aveugle ne ment pas et les résultats peuvent être surprenants, les vins de la Côte de Beaune ont remporté la palme facilement ici, alors pour s’amuser un peu, voici le classement que cela a donné :
1- Chassagne-Montrachet villages 2017 Jean-Claude Ramonet 32 pts
2- Volnay Vieilles Vignes 2017, Henri DeLaGrange 28 pts
3- Auxey-Duresses Très Vieilles Vignes 2017, Alain Gras 26 pts
4- Chambolle-Musigny Les Véroilles 2017, Bruno Clair 20 pts
5- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017, Lucien Boillot 12 pts
6- Gevrey-Chambertin 2017 Les Évocelles, Louis Boillot 8 pts

Ramonet: Nez épices, cannelle, fruits rouges, une touche animale, se complexifie à l'aération. Gourmand et frais à la fois en bouche avec une belle finale assez longue et sur les fruits rouges et les épices. Quel délice. Mon no 2 personnellement. 91-92

Tasted blind. Great nose but a tiny bit of taint. My first taste tells me this packs a big wallop. Huge fruit, acidity and structure. Lemon chiffon, white flowers, earth and rocks, some iodine. Motor oil weight. The taint was minor but just bothersome enough. Without it this would merit a bigger score. — 9 days ago

A jaw dropping nose. Iodine, rockpools, uni, deep blue fruit, blackcurrant, violets. Gorgeous depth and freshness with supple fruit and a bloody depth. So pure and poised. Loads of energy and vigor. Amazing — a month ago

Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir 2018

Really liked it. So versatile for food pairs as well as to drink on its own. Juicy, elegant. Good expression of the grape. One pet peeve, it has a wax coating over the top that’s annoying to remove. The point of that is what? Bought 4 bottles. Will buy more. A winner — 22 days ago
