Les Champs Fulliots Monthelie 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Do NOT Pop and pour. Needs an hour decant. Honestly needs 2 years.

Nose: dense cherry fruit with some cherry licorice. Still integrating the oak. Not over the top but present. The true aromatics flit in and out.

Palate dense structured cherry fruit.

I’m guessing that this will be VERY good in 2 years. Maybe 9.4ish.

Vieilles Vignes Meursault Chardonnay 2015

On the leaner, more minerally side of the Meursault spectrum. Nose has a nice amalgam of light toast, butter, lemon-lime drizzled earthy, stony scents, and barely ripe pear. Intense and uncompromising in the mouth. There’s some fruit, but it’s more stony minerals and lemon oil, with smoky straw at the close. Will age a few more years for sure. — 4 months ago

Les Valozières Aloxe - Corton Pinot Noir 2018

Love this wine. This is a benchmark vintage here. Unreal nose. So layered. Cherry, black cherry, black berry, sous bois, earth, Moss, leaves, dried leaves, so so detailed and classic. Wow this is great. Palate is deep, rich and ripe with great energy and stuffed with fruit. Concentrated and super super sappy. Big structure and depth. Clean as a whistle with terrific cleansing acids. Love the structure here, the sweetness and the intense minerality. Long finish. Will age 15 years. Killer. — 6 months ago

Glorious nose. I love this 1er Cru. Red or white. Gorgeous cherry fruit, licorice and spice. Alluring mineral. Floral. Beguiling and hypnotizing nose. Juicy and also structured and tannic with exquisite balance and purity. 17 is so good and correct. Red fruits galore and superb depth. Earthy sweetness and wonderful hint of that Monthelie earthiness. Love sap and length. Just an awesome wine.

With air nose comes alive! Wow. Sour cherry and insane cherry spice complexity. Perfumed. This is so good. Stunning sappy and sweet fruit.

Pommard Pinot Noir 2016

9.2

Great nose. Superb aromas of mashed flowers, fresh cut grass, dark cherry fruit, soil tones and some game and stoniness. Juicy and complex. Big and classic Pommard with some intense tannins but fruit to back it up. I’d wait a few years. — 5 months ago

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2017

Small producer making some excellent wines. Only $58 so quite on the low side these days for village puligny.

Very good on pop and pour.

Nose is gorgeous. Seashells. Some flowers. Very mineral. Intensely aromatic.

Palate has good richness. Very good. Mineral spine. On the dense side but by no means a sledgehammer. Really delicious. Sweet fruit. Very good amplitude. Almost a hint of peach.

Long lovely nicely fruited finish.
