Domaine Billard-Gonnet

Rugiens-Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Very dark. Deep dark red cherries. Excellent and worth the wait no regrets. 5min in - quite tannic can go for 5 more years. Classic. Hint cassis. Even blueberries. Tart. Very very good. Lyle are you still importing him? Great juice. Days later stored under Argon - stunning. — 16 days ago

The estate no longer exists. He retired and sold off all the parcels. Only makes a tiny bit for friends and family.

Clos des Mouches Beaune 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

On advice of a dear friend and wine guru @Lyle Fass I am drinking my 13 whites. What a gem this is right now. Amazing color. Palate has some crazy fruit overtones (pineapples?) and a really nice long finish. YMMV in 13, so drink em if you got em — 3 months ago

Vin de Savoie Mondeuse 2018

I love this varietal. Inky color, blueberry/Boysenberry jam, wild spice, geranium, chalky minerality, funk(in the best way), medium tannin, chalky finish and great acid. — 6 months ago

Les Pèzerolles Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Nothing obvious here. Patience required, patience rewarded. Tightly woven, black cherry, mint and a waft of smoke wrapped around a spine of acid. Compact, yet rewarding. More giving on night two. — a month ago

Chaponnières Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Lyle Fass

What a nose. Big time macerated cherries. Confectionary aromas. Mid season cherries and lovely ripeness. Huge mineral background. So stoney. Really alluring and aromatic. Just singing out of the gates. Glorious fruit. Lovely 2012 amplitude. Big time freshness and loads of deep, detailed sweet cherry fruit. Great acids, cut and minerality that just goes on and on and intermingles with the fruit perfectly. Great wine. — 3 months ago

Cuvée Etienne Gonnet Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2004

This needed a little time to decant and open up. Plum, tobacco, vanilla, and raisins on the nose. A tasty balance of dark berry fruit, oak, and graphite on the palate. Screams a need for savory food and answers that call with aplomb. Drink now as this is on the way down, but delightful now. — 2 months ago
