Nice fruity bit acidic — 2 months ago
Nose with chalky mineralogy but also distinctly of earth - like potting soil. diChalk on the nose as well as CM spice. Less chalk on the slate which features full bodied cara cara orange wrapped in a liquid of exotic spices along with more notes of earth and some bitter almond. Some toasted oak nuances but mostly integrated. Fantastic! — 5 months ago
Rich and creamy but not cloying in any way, definite ageing potential, and lovely length — 19 days ago
2018 better harvest for Pinot- more complex than average Burgundy pinot. Enjoyed with fabulous meal in Beanue. — 3 months ago

Bourgogne Rouge in name only. This cuvée comes from an old vines plot of Meursault Pinot Noir, and it’s simply one of the most refined, tender and haunting Burgundies of the vintage. Wild fraises, roses and hints of clove and cinnamon...all in a delicate, shimmery framework. Extraordinary. — a month ago
Nose has oxidized yellow apple, pineapple core, peach pit, lemon zest and older, wet oak.
Palate has day old pineapple slice, dried lemon peel, creamy butter, green banana peel, zingy acidity with nice sandstone-like minerals on the medium-long finish.
Seems quite advanced for a 2016 vintage, a nose and (sort of) palate of a wine 6+ years its senior. Our only bottle, likely we could get another, but at ~$50 it's not worth it to us. I did decant for about 90m, based on experience with other 2016 S-A wines, not sure if this was enough time for this bottle, but it is showing improvement with glass time.
At hour 3+ the semi-ripe, tropical fruits are finally making an entrance 👍 — 4 months ago
