Hospices De Beaune

Domaine des Croix (David Croix)

Beaune Premier Cru Pinot Noir 2016

@Delectable Wine this is the Beaune 1er. Pop and pour. A touch austere at first, but really needed air to get going. After 1.5 hrs much more giving. On the nose: a touch of game, pure wild strawberry, soft cola, a hint of stems. On the palate: fantastic acidity, savory red fruit, which complements the nose so well, brambles, and a dusting of tannin on the close...stunning with some air. — 5 days ago

Domaine Pavelot (Jean-Marc et Hugues)

Savigny-lès-Beaune Chardonnay 2010

Amazingly fresh and bright with traces of it's former molinerality. Lemon curd, ricotta and kiwi with bright acid.

Still medium bodied with hints of papaya and kumquats. Shortbread crust.

Slightly bitter and nutty on the finish. But pairs beautiful with food.

Les Marconnets Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2008

Roses, violets, lots of spices, a rim that is now discretely bricking, in a medium bodied and very serious pinot. This is seriously good. No rush but accessible now. We like it a great deal. — 4 days ago

Les Serpentières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Lots of delicious and expressive red fruit, drinks easy but with more and more depth and complexity as it ages slowly. Even better on day 2. 90-91

Du fruit rouge en masse, très Pinot et un profil parfumé et expressif mais ça se boit tellement bien, encore meilleur jour 2.

Beaune Les Cents Vignes 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Pop and pour, notes from 2 hrs open. On the nose: lovely plum.and blackberry, oak spice, soft cocoa powder, soft herbs in the background; very clearly delineated flavors. On the palate: fantastic acidity and density; spicy strawberry, and dark fruit...excellent tannin on the spicy finish. This is definitely structured to improve with some age, but it is already so drinkable now. Yum! — 12 days ago

Domaine Leflaive

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1992

Tasted blind. Medium gold. Rich, “wow” nose... has a noticeable power that is a step above the other whites tonight. Lots of lemon and citrus, some gravel stone and dirt, tan spice, white acacia flowers. Later some creme brûlée thing pops in. The experience goes on and on for hours. Has an amazing level of balance... fruit, richness, complexity and structure. Again shows us this is an all time white. We all nailed our guess on this beauty by the process of deduction and the obvious quality of this amazing, in great condition juice. — 13 hours ago
