Boozy, lots of fruit up front, rubbery, distinct, acidic. Great with Brie. — 8 days ago

Domaine Henri Gouges

La Perrière Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Mix of honey, lemon, butter and some saline minerality. Great balance and hints of everything rather than overpowering flavors of each. Light and round on the palate. — 3 days ago

A white wine from NSG is rare. Nice selection.

Nuits St. Georges Pinot Noir 2012

Great structure and concentration of fruit. Open for business now, though you probably want to take it in slowly to let it evolve in the glass. Would love to revisit in 5yrs... if I can ever find some. — 10 days ago

Domaine Daniel Rion et Fils

Les Terres Blanches Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Blanc 2004

Retiscent nose that is slightly nutty and chalky with some fresh lemon juice and a whiff of gunpowder. On the palate reminds me of a high quality muscadet with fresh squeezed lemon, some tart yellow fruit notes including yellow apple and maybe some yellow nectarine, a distinct smoke ( but not the coche duty like sense of the first bottle, underlying flowers, and tangy acidity. Some undertones of nuttiness and oxidized characteristics but they are integrated and in place. Still well structured, but does not seem as nuanced and deep as the last bottle.

Aux Murgers Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2008

Needed a bit of time in the glass 20-30mins but in a great spot. Fruit is still going strong with dark fruit and grippy tannins. But after some time some spice notes and flower tones make their way onto the finish. Beautiful wine! — 5 days ago

@Ron R Aside from the CdC and the Charles Heidesick that night, this wine and the others were from a generous friend.

Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. Blind as usual.

Label was in bad shape but the wine wasn’t. Very Oregon like in my opinion showing plenty of herbal character but a core of black cherry, old fig and red clay blend together nicely to make the layers of this strut its Burgundian pedigree. I called this Oregon pinot.

That label looks like it went through a shedder. 🤣. As long as the wine is solid. 👍

Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg

Les Chaignots Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Too much oak at the moment - not enough fruit weight to support this. SC reckons this is one of Mugneret-Gibourg's weaker 1er. Probably clonal issue. Still... It's very elegant with a distinct mineral core. Plenty of spice that kinda transcends the appellation. — 12 days ago

Domaine Prieuré Roch

Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos des Argillières 2010

I guess I should probably add this now, since I brought it up in the Featured User section. I think this would be a tough wine for some to like, mainly due to reduction and the high whole bunch used, but I thought it was brilliant. Fine and concentrated. I like the reduction on this - very Mersault-like according to AA. Floral perfume, spice, bunch aromatics, pomegranate. Palate's very light yet intense. Juicy red fruit, flinty reduction, earthy mineral undertones, hints of green herbs and tea. Lengthy and focused. A very sexy pino!

NB: A generous open by CW. The 2010 Roch's have been quite hard to come by for me. Years ago, the 2010 Pinoterie, a cuvee made from grand and 1er cru berries that fell off the sorting table due to their ripeness, totally blew me away. Till this day, I've been trying to find another bottle, so it's nice to be able to see another wine from the vintage in recent times. According to CW, Prieure Roch totally nailed 2010 and so far, I tend to agree. The domaine's one of those producers where vintage variation's huge - don't get me started on the 11's 🤮
