Les Sorbets Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Well isn’t this just a delight. A rather attractive, almost ruddy color. Translucent edges and long legs. The bouquet is so nice. More savory than fruity to be sure. Plenty of licorice and wet moss. Leather and lace, with a touch of violet. Those earthy aromas never fade, with fresh cut grass and idyllic spring meadows just for good measure. Dried cherries begin to take over after a bit of time. Still so fresh and alive smelling. A little blueberry compote and faded strawberries.

This is such a well balanced Burgundy at this point. Drinking very, very well at this age with plenty of life left in it. Medium bodied and smooth as all get out. The fruit is rambunctious and still youthful. I doubt this has even hit its prime yet. More delicious red cherries and blue fruits shine in the mouth. There’s an appropriate bit of oak, not too much, and restrained barnyard. I would have liked to see the funk set free but this is a wine that chooses not to dive headlong into that arena. Still, a seriously lovely pour.

Morey Saint Denis Pinot Noir 2016

Quel beau vin de niveau Villages, jeune certes mais se boit bien maintenant, belle structure et des tannins bien présents mais approchables au touché et avec une belle fraîcheur. 91-92

Gorgeous Villages level wine, young but drinks well even now, nice structure, approachable tannins, nice freshness, good length, very satisfying at this level.

Léa Sélection Morey-Saint-Denis Pinot Noir 2008

2022/5/3. There are several dimensions to the nose here, with some brown spice, forest floor / mushroom, and juicy berry fruit with some air and time. The palate is a bit more straightforward and also a bit lean - but overall, still quite enjoyable. — 15 days ago

Clos de Tart Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2003

Decided to check in on this. Deep dark purple, opaque. Fruit intensive nose. Notes of peppery kirsch, some wood and herbs, and a little soil. One dimensional and still primary, even on day 2. Rich and powerful in the mouth. A bit hot too. Just short of age 20, I’m not sure where it’s going. Probably could say that about many 03s right now. I wanted to like it more but it didn’t move the needle that much. Gave it a lot of air and it didn’t budge. Might check in again on this in 10 years. — 12 days ago

Clos-Saint-Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir

Comes out earthy and a touch funky, which fades with time open, leaving behind pure brambly berry fruit. Delicate, with good concentration and length. — a day ago

La Chatenière Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Nose has cooled lemon curd, light apple cider vinegar, cold pineapple, moist moss, oxidized green apple slice, damp clove and very wet grassy notes.

Palate has pineapple core, bruised green pears, faint lanolin, light honey notes, light under-ripe yellow peach and white waxy notes round out the finish.

Double decant with 12H rest. A Saint Aubin for the trending natural wine crowd without being over the top 'natural'. 92-93 Points.

Paired to a grilled slab of Steelhead Trout, perfection.

24H Update:
Nose has fresh green apple peel, warmed yellow apple slice and white waxy notes.
Palate has warm pear, slight honey and under-ripe pineapple.
Much improved; Score change 92>93.
