La Croix Blanche Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013

Mme Tremblay does some of the best and finest Burgundy wines these days. This one was no exception. Cherries, asian spices, mint, very fresh and balanced, no rush. Top stuff in a small vintage. — 6 days ago

Les Feusselottes Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Elegant and expressive with a beautiful bouquet. It shows lovely purity and finesse. Black raspberries, red flowers, a touch of reduction, exotic spices and roasted herbs. It shows no “green” of the vintage and the subtle herbal quality is seamlessly integrated and only adds to complexity. It’s not at all thin, and it has great intensity, yet simultaneously it’s weightless and it just floats on the palate. Finishes long with vibrance and lift. Beautiful wines from Madame Tremblay. — 5 months ago

Chambolle-Musigny Aux Echanges 2014

A rare bird from Cécile Tremblay - only one barrel made using 100% whole bunch and without sulphur; bottled exclusively in magnums. Opens with a floral and dark-fruited perfume that's quite captivating, followed by a concentrated and juicy palate. The wine offers excellent purity for me, which could be construed as being one-dimensional. I believe its rather closed at the moment, but L calls it "unemotional" which I think is simply too harsh. Finishes long and chewy. I could complain about the lack of minerally tones, but at midnight, this was an excellent night cap. — 10 months ago

Yes, I have only drunk the 2008, and I drank it very young, like back during Fall 2013, from a restaurant list. I have read that Tremblay’s parcel originated from the same holding from which Mugneret-Gibourg’s parcel originates. I believe Tremblay is related to M-G somehow, and Tremblay and M-G have portions of the original holding. I have never confirmed this, but read it somewhere, if memory serves.

@Web Bond Yea. It was split in half. I think cecile's grandfather was great friends with georges mugneret. Not suee if they're related. The 08' should be gold. Haha. Hey, do you have Instagram. I'm a little more active there :)

One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer (GT&TD) Spätburgunder 2016

Lyle Fass
9.5

Now the high end Jurgen wines. Sick nose. Incredible. The next cult German Pinot. It’s so obvious. Nose of intense black cherries, mid season best of bunch red cherries, some cooling blueberry that echoes Cecile Tremblay. Loads of spice and earth. But so so so refined. Delicate yet intense nose. Superb. Beguiling. Huge minerality. Smells like red rocks. You sniff for 10 minutes before you sip as it is so good and keeps changing. After 10 minutes there is massive complex aromas. Palate has insane inner mouth perfume and massive elegance. Incredible palate. Mega juicy and so complex. So pure and clean. Lithe and elegant but intensely flavored with bursting mid season red and black cherries. Incredible energy and sweetness of fruit and man it is so so elegant. Pure as the driven snow. This is mega elite. The intensity combined with delicacy is incredible. Masterful balance and top of the line purity. Delicate and powder tannins with perfect ethereal ripeness. 9.5 for now. But I see this going higher. Insanely long finish. — 9 months ago

What's with the very non-traditional naming here? Needing something to catch your attention on that label...?

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011

IMO, MG makes one of the absolute best Clos Vougeot’s. This one drank very youthful and primary but all the material is there for this to be a fantastic bottle down the road. It showed much more producer and vineyard than it did the vintage. There was none of the overt greenness that you can often get with 2011’s. Along with Rousseau, Dujac and Tremblay, MG’s 2011’s are very impressive.

After an initial shyness it does reveal itself after a multi hour decant and begins to waft from the glass with aromas of dark fruit, florals and spices. On the palate it’s deep, elegant and pure with fine grained tannins, excellent focus and delineation. But you can tell it wishes to resume its slumber. It often went back and forth from showing great fruit expression to then aromas of woodsmoke and savory herbs. But the herbal qualities are not at all off putting and just add to complexity. I would love to check in on this again with more bottle age. It is clear that it will have a lot to offer those with more patience than me.
