Les Champs-Gain Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

14 carat gold color. The nose is open on notes of white flowers, honeysuckle and lemon. On the palate powerful well-supported mid-palate and a long finish. The palate is very harmonious with a perfect combination of acidity and oak. The taste of the honeysuckle really seduced me and the mineral finish. A beautiful bottle that can be kept for many years but so beautiful now why not pop the cork ! — 16 days ago

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2012

Raveneau study! Nose was floral and saline, with intense lemon and pear notes, touched gently by wood. Crystalline, focused, and more concentrated than the 13' Foret on the palate, Raveneau's MdT is always so solid in their line-up. Long and mineral finish. Still hiding some depth as it got better with air, so will definitely benefit with more cellaring. — 12 days ago

Les Chalasses Marnes Bleues Côtes du Jura Savagnin 2015

Tight and begs for air. Linear and precise. Lemons, pears, floral, nutty, waxy, saline. Not quite as lengthy as expected. Should have decanted hard when opening it this young. Oh well. — 21 days ago

Les Vasées Mercurey 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Lyle Fass
9.3

The comic sans MS master of Mercurey does it again. His 14’s absolutely thrash. Hugely expressive nose. Big cherry, lipstick like intensity, lovely sous bois, such purity to the aromas. Cherry flower. Just pungent aromas. Juicy and complex with sour tangy mid season cherries and dazzling purity and freshness. Balanced and so much great acidity. Amazingly refined wine that is open now but has so much more to say. Good complexity and a lovely earthy sweetness. Long. — 21 hours ago

Grusse en Billat Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2015

Showing the warmth of the vintage here in the best of ways. Slightly piney and resinous with wet wool, lanolin, restrained orchard + stone fruits with fresh, yellow flowers. On the palate, very tense with herbaceous character. Texture here is super salty but with a great depth and richness. Powerful yet tight, this drank much better when it came up closer to room temperature. A real joy to drink with thai food tonight. — 4 days ago

Vigneron Passionne Brut Grand Cru Rosé Champagne Blend

Under the radar grower Champange. If you like Pina coladas....wait that’s something else. Tiny bubbles well balanced fruit and minerals. A classic delicate Rosé.  — 14 days ago

Chablis Premier Cru Foret 2013

Lacking a little density, but exceptional clarity. Nice wine, but paled in comparison to the 12' MdT. — 12 days ago
