Mes Cinq Terroirs Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2015

Drinking well showing rich, sappy dark fruits with a strong core of mineral, forest floor & licorice notes. Should be a beauty over time — a month ago

Denis Race

Mont de Milieu Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Pop and pour. Pear, soft funk, salt, lemon, vanilla..definitely very richly styled on the nose. On the palate: excellent acidity, sea salt, pear, lemon peel. Good density on the tangy finish. Interesting to compare to the montmains...this is more stereotypically chablisienne on the palate, while the montmains wins on that count in-so-far as the nose is concerned. Not bad. — 21 days ago

Domaine Georges Roumier

Clos de la Bussière Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

A richer, riper, denser version of this wine with dark fruits, lots of spice, licorice & floral notes. Still youthful that will drink well for many years. — 9 days ago

Domaine Bruno Clair

"En la Rue de Vergy" Morey-Saint-Denis Pinot Noir 2018

Pop and pour. The nose is spectacular: wild, intense, perfume, soft wet leaf, wild strawberry, wow. On the palate: excellent acidity, savory, dense, spicy, and finely grained, but dense tannin on the finish. Let's see what further days open bring. — 19 days ago

Maison Ilan

Les Chaffots Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

There's been a lot of shade thrown on these wines and particularly, towards the wine maker...most of it probably deserved. As for some of the more recent low scores, there must be some bottle variation because I’m not gonna lie, this was a really strong showing. Popped and poured; consumed over two hours. Bruised strawberries, tart brambles, rhubarb, forest floor, and sandalwood. Tannins are well integrated…but still there. Acid is pretty high but perfect for a nice meal of whole, roasted chicken and root vegetables. The wine is otherwise quite balanced and if my bottle is representative, this still has a long life ahead of it and should drink quite well through 2030. My last of the Maison Ilan “Les Chaffots”. — a month ago

Mommessin

Clos de Tart Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Remains one of favorite grand crus. Gentle, rose petals, raspberries, peonies. Drinks beautifully but will benefit from another 5 years of cellaring. Very elegant. — 15 days ago
