Les Eygats Lieu-dit Cornas Syrah 2014

A rather lively purple color with distinct ruby undertones. Big ripe blackberries and bacon on the nose. Raspberry, fresh herbs, and smoke are present with just enough funk to say hello. Slight touch of olives and earth.

100% Syrah from Cornas may not be what you call a summer sipper but this can withstand a slight chill. There’s plenty of power and character here with smooth tannins and slightly bitter acidity. Very masculine and bigger than I expected. Full bodied and quite generous.

Blue and black fruits dominate the palate, mostly with blueberry cobbler and black currant shining. Stewed plums and licorice combine nicely with the sage and fresh herbs. Pepper and smoke on the longish finish. Cornas almost always delivers and this is no exception.

Decent now. Will get better with age. Aromatics need to open up a bit. Surprisingly mellow tannins. — 14 days ago

Dorine Le Mesnil Sur Oger Champagne Blend

Craving some bubbles? This Champagne from Launois is a good option at a great price! 🥂🇫🇷

Aromas of bread and pastries blended with a mineral and creamy texture. It is a Blanc de Blancs.

Cheers!

Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Very expressive aromas of red berries, spices and a floral side. Fresh, elegant with pure fruit and a nice medium bodied structure for this good Savigny.

Notes constantes, nez très expressif et aromatique avec du fruit rouge, épicé et floral. De la fraîcheur, du fruit pur, une certaine élégance accompagne une belle structure. 89-90

Les Gaudichots Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2004

2020 September. I approached this with some trepidation as the last bottle (opened a few years back) was hard, tart and weedy. I find some reactions to the 2004 vintage character overblown, but this wine had lived down to the stereotype. This bottle, though, was different - the greenness had melted into a rather open, fairly complex and rich wine which more than hinted at its origins. Dark berries, spice, game, etc. So perhaps that mean green thing was just a very long and very awkward middle phase after all. I have one more bottle, and it’ll be very interesting to see where this ends up in a several more years. I’d say the same for my other remaining 2004s. — 6 hours ago

Le Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir

Nice developed nose dark with medium to dark color, slightly acidic, but full bodied complex body with a moderately long aftertaste. It stood up well to a big early 1990’s California Cab& surpassed a very good Vosne-Romanee. — 11 days ago
