Sous Frétille Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

9.3

One of my favorite wines that tariffs have destroyed. Was $33 or so before and now almost $50. These damn things need to go away. Gorgeous deep minerals on the nose. So clean and so pure. Some lime zest but huge minerals out of the gates. Palate is so sleek, so refined and hugely exceedingly mineral. Terrific freshness and energy. Awesome texture and depth. Icing on cake texture that is very substantial. Amazing depth that expresses itself as a function of mineralIty. Terrific concentration and intensity. Long, refined and exceedingly mineral finish. Leaves your mouth watering. Zero fat. All minerals and echoes of fruit. — 5 days ago

Les Peuillets Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Dark color for a Girard and a very deep and serious nose. Extremely high toned. Mixed bright mid season rainer cherries with ultra ripe morellos as well. Beautiful deep wet earth notes. Layered and very deep. Really gets deep into the nasal cavity. Just ethereal. Palate is ripe, elegant and super juicy, with terrific fruit. Gorgeous mid to late season cherries. Bright and juicy. Amazing balance and freshness. Complex and ripe. Just terrific — 12 days ago

New Glou Fenaughty, Girard, Testa and Cloud Vineyard Marsanne Blend 2019

A suicide soda fountain mix from five lots - Marsanne , Roussanne, Vermentino, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Merlot Rose’, Syrah, and Chardonnay. And maybe more. It’s a murky glowing magenta with wild berry candy notes. Strawberry, blackberry, boysenberry - check. A little pepper kick too. Good use of the rest of the bunch from the harvest is my guess. — a month ago

Les Rouvrettes 1er Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2017

I adore this vintage. I adore this vineyard. I adore Girard. I also adore using the word adore. Stunning clarity to the nose. Mint, mineral, sour cherries, ethereal aromas that are ultra focused. Palate is super juicy and has that Girard drinkability. So pure. So fresh. Energetic with lithe tannins and lovely purity. Just a laser of a Savigny. Gorgeous wine. If you love Burgundy and ignore Savigny you don’t love Burgundy. — 18 days ago

Clos du Roi 1er Cru Beaune Pinot Noir 2017

9.4

Lovely nose. Hint of reduction initially. Then cherry, cherry flower, deep spice, thick cherry flesh, so upfront and high toned but with a deep mineral background that sets Clos du Roi apart. It’s so serious. Palate is generously fruited and intensely structured but also very supple for this cuvee. Ripe and juicy tannins and terrific Giratd purity, freshness and accessibility. Mixture of dark fruits and lighter cherry fruits but also has a sinewy, earthy quality. Terrific balance. Always so impressive. With air gains body and sap. Terrific. — a month ago

This is really singing now. Savory and herbal. Great silky texture, good structure and a slight bitter finish that goes on for days. — a month ago
