Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

Yep that’s definitely nuit st. Georges. Clive Coates acclaimed 2 star producer deserves it. No manipulation here. Terroir shining. Taste that chalk. Love it. Rating corresponds to value. — a month ago

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Wine No. 5 in the 2016 white Grand Cru lineup tasted blind. We knew the identities but not the order of service. A very intense mineral nose with plenty of struck match/sulphur white flesh fruits. Quite reductive. Medium plus verging on profound intensity on the palate. Everything about this wine is intense and powerful. A long future ahead. Would rate a higher score once the sulphur blows off. Proves again that 2016 in certain areas was a very good vintage for whites. After the initial frost everything went well. — 25 days ago

Great notes, right on point. Recently I’ve noticed I have a physical reaction (similar to an allergy) when I drink wines with high amounts of sulphur, which has caused me to stop drinking this producer’s wines. Will enjoy vicariously.

@Manny Abascal Yes I’ve noticed Australian Chardonnay makers are looking for that struck match character which I believe is not entirely due to sulphur but not being a winemaker not sure what that is exactly.

Les Pucelles Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

This is spectacular right now. Great purity with lifted lemon, hints of honey and softened white floral notes. It has a great balancing salinity on the mid palate and real complexity. Starting to show some of the secondary notes of age/ oxidation but in a really good place. Given those notes I’ll probably drink the next of these soon in case they turn. Wonderful stuff. The best pucelles I’ve had from Boillot — a month ago

I don’t think I’ve noted this wine before, but this was one of those bottles where everything felt perfectly in place. There is a question if a 2014 should be showing these slight aged notes at this stage (the Mouchere is more backward and tight but has similar potential) but this was spot on. Up there with Leflaive in quality but significantly cheaper

How strange. I don’t have a record of that note on delectable. I guess the last bottle was duller, or I’m an inconsistent marker- both of which are possible!
