Corton Grand Cru Chardonnay 2013

A gift from @Joe Lucca I was able to share with the local group and it was a big hit. Power and precision, honeysuckle, green apple, flint and a dab of brioche. May be my first Corton Blanc and I need more of this now. — 2 months ago

Château Corton Grancey Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

9.2

This one started out with lean fruits and a fair amount of dry earth. But, after two hours in the decanter, put on weight, body thickened with creamy texture, dark currants, dark chocolate, soft baking spices with soft minerality, moist forest floor earthiness and withering dark flowers. Ended well with our dessert of dark chocolate and strawberries.

Thank you Christina for sharing this Grand Cru Burgundy with us.

This was part of last nights dinner with friends. Certainly had no thought of upstaging you or anyone. ✌️

We'll never upstage each other, but I'm having Affogato now and I'm in heaven.

Domaine Leflaive

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2000

Lovely gentle lemon with seashells on the nose. There’s a real warmth to this in the core- lovely honeyed fruit with good tension and a long, long finish. A lovely wine.... 30 mins later, this has expanded and is really open and lush. Wow — 18 hours ago

Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg

Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir

1999. Amazing for a 20 year old. Fruit still there. I’ll probably never have one of these again. But it’s a wonderful showing of Burgundy — 8 days ago

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2008

Pure, light and crystalline on the nose. Very fresh and delineated it’s lime, zest, slate. A beautifully balanced palate, distinguished and long. Primary still with a lot of aging ahead but this is drinking really well now — 3 days ago

Domaine Dujac

Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2001

Nice reddish tawny color, translucent with depth. Bright ripe bing cherry dominated nose. Notes of rhubarb, cherries, moist forest floor, a little menthol and some steminess. Still chewy in the mouth but well balanced, especially after an hour of air. Good stuff. Should get better with more time in the bottle though. — 18 hours ago

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Valentine's day....time for pinot and pizza! Decanted 1 hour. A forbidding dark ruby red color. On the nose: Earthy, red fruit, floral, mushrooms, cinnamon...all jump out of the glass. Taste: Dark cherry, spice, tobacco, minerals....a power Burgundy from 60 year old vines. — 6 days ago

Rounded with sweet edges with lemon oil and a touch of tangerine. Plush and very balanced with a polished, balanced acidity. Of a slightly riper, rounder style. Very good. — 18 hours ago
