Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2014

Wow. Utterly magnificent for village puligny. Genius wine. Worth $100 easy. When morel hits it he hits it. Nose is so elegant. Fresh rainwater. Yellow flowers. Beautiful. The palate is sweet mineral goodness. Like a sweet rock was pulverized in your mouth. Long finish. A wine of beauty and distinction. Too bad French over regulation caused him to throw in the towel.

As this aerates the nose is beautiful. The palate is richer. But in such an elegant way.

This needs an hour to peak. Wow. This is gorgeous. Grand cru gorgeous. Wow. Hand over land. Lol. The ultimate king slayer to bring to a burgundy tasting.

Côtes du Rhône Villages Laudun Grenache Blanc Blend 2014

I thought this was fantastic. I didn’t take any notes, sadly, but had this wine over multiple days with multiple meals and it stood up nicely. Great balance, citrus, floral and stone fruit notes, also quite possibly the most yellow colored wine I have ever drank (drunk?). — 21 days ago

Les Aigrots Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Nice, still lively 1er Cru Red Côte de Beaune Burgundy. Still had some good primary fruit (cherry) on the palate. Clean medium red color with some body. Enjoyed mostly after my white asparagus with morel and poached egg appetizer. Worked nicely with the morels and sauce. — 3 months ago

Les Genouvrées Bourgogne 2014

On open ...Nose has some smoke. Palate is citrus rind. Very mineral.

-as it opens very clean mineral opulence if that makes sense Nose is improving as well. Smoke disappears and it’s very mineral.

Just a very different wine. Such a unique style.

Valentin Morel Les Pieds Sur Terre Les Trouillots Poulsard 2016

Strawberries all the way down. A (very) little sous bois to finish. Medium high acidity. Comes off like a Fleurie more than a Jura Poulsard. — 17 days ago

Love Morel’s reds. Brambly, bright, red-fruited nose. Lovely spice. Very pungent. Palate is bright and juicy with wonderful acidity and freshness. Dazzlingly pure and fresh with huge red fruits and a wonderful hint of rusticity. Lovely earth and spice perfume develops after a while. Wow. Still has many years ahead of it. — 11 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend

Vanilla laden lilac candy. A nice little nose.

An eloquent wine, with a lovely rounded mouthfeel.
Darker fruits fruit leather, a sprig of mint, a hint of currant, subtle is the fruit. Neither overpowering or underwhelming, this sits in a harmony I have not had in a while. Solid vintage. Solid wine. Gotta stop raiding the cellar..
And when I say cellar, let me clarify: it’s more where Harry Potter slept..
