Eponym' Morgon Gamay 2016

First time trying the eponym. Way more open in its youth even than the other foillard wines and that is saying a lot! Juice 🥤 — 16 days ago

Domaine Jean-Claude Marsanne

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Nice. Overridingly purple. But still quite delicious, just with a little less of the peppery / earthy Syrah notes than expected. — 8 days ago

"Les Chassignols" Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2013

Crunchy red fruits with the telltale signs of M-a-V structure; snappy tannin and zippy acidity. Just a lovely wine to begin the evening on. — 10 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

L'Hermitage Syrah 2014

Popped, poured, and blinded this wine. It didn't take long for the notes to lead me towards Hermitage (so intense!), but I didn't think it was Chave's because it was lacking the meaty notes that I associate with his wines. I am, however, not an authority on Chave - I can count the number of times I've drank his Hermitage with my hands. Regardless, the 2014 Hermitage was certainly impressive and my WOTN. Full-bodied, dark fruits, quite ripe, but in no way jammy, spice - anise, juniper, and bay leaf, licorice, deep minerals, sexy supple texture. As the night progressed - seriously stony, air has brought out the meatiness (bacon), along with some gamey and musky tones. The fruit adamantly refuses to subside on the palate. A real masterpiece, especially for the vintage.

Here's another case of infanticide on my end, but at least in the name of research, I can attest to the excellence of this wine. Personally, though, I was missing some floral and crushed pepper characters which I love in Syrah. Just nit-picking.

@Severn Goodwin this is the winery owned by Jean-Charles Boisset, a little over priced if you ask me.

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

Revisiting a bottle we last tasted in the intimate chateau of the Girard's in Spring of 2018.

Nose has the brightest fresh cherry note of any village Burgundy appellation, fresh Thanksgiving cranberry dressing and moist leather.
Palate has insane/deep cherry for days, dried citrus peel, grippy tannins and a long finish. Great structure and built for the long haul.

Photos of the cool/moist barrel cellar of the chateau, older bottles collecting cellar mold, the new winemaking facility out at the rear of the property and our bottle of the evening.

Opening this too soon for sure, but damn 2016 Burgundy is incredibly tasty and it's hard to hold back! Buy all your can afford, seriously.
