Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Pinot Noir 2018

Sur Gamay Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

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 👍

Les Enseignières Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2011

Not sure on this wine. Feels more Aubin than Puligny. Very light on its feet, tart, kinda simple. Even after some hours open, it never had that much to say. No negatives just had hoped for more. — 5 months ago

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

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! — 2 months ago

Bourgogne Aligote 2016

Over 37 vintages of tasting Prudhon’s wines, I cannot recall one single bottle that didn’t over-deliver or represent anything other than massive value. This may be the most underrated estate in Burgundy, and this Aligoté is Exhibit 1 in my argument: sea salty, mineral, Meyer lemon and palpable electricity. Forget the grape variety: this is simply extraordinary white wine. Unfined, unfiltered, already throwing tartrates...so the mouthfeel and complexity suggest a decant and aeration. Aligoté can’t be any better than this. — 4 months ago
