Givry, Côte Chalonnaise

Domaine Joblot

L'Empreinte Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Lovely rich purple blue color. Ripe cherries and spices. Acidic. Opened up nicely. Lovely with a filet of beef medium rare and fresh grilled vegetables. Nice as an aperitif wine prior to dinner as well — 18 days ago

Vignerons de Buxy

Mercurey Pinot Noir 2017

Light Ruby with youthful aromas of red berry fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of ripe cherry and raspberry with dried flower spice. Fine soft dusty tannins on medium(+) finish ending fruit character. Very nice! Good value! — 10 days ago

@Max Kelly I’m one for two with Roulot Aligote but the good one was excellent indeed. Leaner style, like Ramonet. Maybe I need another list for that style...

@Max Kelly The Anne Boisson style seems to split the difference between the two styles

La Grande Roche Montagny 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Not sure why all the haters on delectable for this one. Nice white burgundy for $25. Almost would have guessed Chablis but the more exuberant juiciness and relative lack of minerality provides at least some indication it’s not that. Unbesmirched by oak (in a very good way). — 16 days ago

La Fortune Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise PInot Noir 2016

2021 winter. I won’t write notes on this unless something is unusual, since I just repeat myself... — 8 days ago

Domaine A. et P. de Villaine

Les Saint-Jacques Rully Chardonnay 2018

2021/4. I feel like de Villaine’s Chardonnays have a bit more depth and savor than they did a decade ago - and they were certainly good then. This was lovely, with lots of fresh fruit and acidity but some sneaky stone, butter and hazelnut lurking. — 8 days ago

Nice: de facto house wine... I’ll use that!

Domaine Ninot

Mercurey Vieilles Vignes Pinot Noir 2018

Quite dark & structured with dark fruit, a touch moss, a whiff of fresh mushrooms,
On the palate this shows juicy acidity, a plush, firm tannic structure and dark cherry & ripe strawberry. Richer & a bit more burly, but soo drinkable and good friendly. This is a really good wine, and so good quality-price-ratio!
4h decant and drinking v. nicely right now.
