Les Roncières Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Been exploring a lot of younger Domaine Chevillon over this last year. But didn't write any notes. Doing that now. The 2017 Roncières is reliably wonderful. Bright florals, red fruit and delicate spice bouquet. Medium bodied, ample but focused fruit, with some acidity on the palate. Some might react that the fruit profile is a bit straightforward, but I think this lends this wine a lovely sort of simplicity and character on the palate is derived from fine grained tannins. Gently acidic and refined finish. — 4 days ago

Les Pruliers Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Great Nuits with a very classical style, fresh, balanced, spicy, rich but not over extracted, an excellent bottle. Will be better in 3 to 5 years. We liked it a lot !! — 15 days ago

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2012

Beautiful. Needs a quick decant. That lets the oak char dissipate. Blind I might have guessed Gevrey or NSG. A bit burly initially, but the decant did the trick. Makes you want to come back for more. — 10 days ago

Without doubt, for the loot, Duband is my favorite producer in Burgundy.
This has relaxed and is now ready to drink. Subtly, elegance and grace define the core characteristics of this superb pinot.
The nose is understated, but still presents cedar, smoke and ripe cherries. Great, structured mid palate. Tannins are still prominent. Cinnamon notes and vibrant acidity bring home the excellent finish. This still needs more time in the bottle, and I predict further improvement in the long run.

I don’t drink CDP when I do I will drink this. This is a pure Grenache via the Greek of divine origins. Nose is just gorgeous herbs. So complex and so detailed. A gorgeous plum and berry fruit. So intense yet refined and delicate. Heavenly nose. 9.8. Just stunning. Palate is juicy, complex and so so so stoney. Some heat as that is what is part of the picture here. But that gets better integrated as this cuvee airs. The nose off the bat is just an experience. Smell it while you let it breathe. Amazing sweetness, structure and tannins. Long. Elegant. Wonderful. — 4 days ago

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011

IMO, MG makes one of the absolute best Clos Vougeot’s. This one drank very youthful and primary but all the material is there for this to be a fantastic bottle down the road. It showed much more producer and vineyard than it did the vintage. There was none of the overt greenness that you can often get with 2011’s. Along with Rousseau, Dujac and Tremblay, MG’s 2011’s are very impressive.

After an initial shyness it does reveal itself after a multi hour decant and begins to waft from the glass with aromas of dark fruit, florals and spices. On the palate it’s deep, elegant and pure with fine grained tannins, excellent focus and delineation. But you can tell it wishes to resume its slumber. It often went back and forth from showing great fruit expression to then aromas of woodsmoke and savory herbs. But the herbal qualities are not at all off putting and just add to complexity. I would love to check in on this again with more bottle age. It is clear that it will have a lot to offer those with more patience than me.

@Ira Schwartz not at all, it was gorgeous despite the vintage that is not my favorite for red Burgs.
