Hospices de Beaune (Louis Jadot)

Cuvée Guigone de Salins Maison Louis Jadot 2014

Solid feminine Pinot Noir. Straightforward if not particularly interesting. Nice cherry start and smooth if not long finish. The flavors do not particularly stand out, but there are no off flavors or flaws. — 8 days ago

Les Narbantons Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Nose is cherry perfume. Mellow but gorgeous.

Palate is cherry and cherry lipstick. Fresh. Juicy, delicious. Hint of cherry licorice.

Giraffe is a model of consistency. Never a bad bottle.

As this opens more gods cherry density. Wow.

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

My second time with this producer after having the 2015 Les Frionnes a few weeks ago. I find the two to be quite different and definitely preferred the En Remilly.

Aromatically, it shows caramel dipped Granny Smith apple, melon, pineapple, honeysuckle and a kiss of oak. Where it really differs from the Les Frionnes is the profile on the palate...much more texture and richness here. Classical chalk and limestone alongside more melon, underripe white peach, and the very end of the finish has a note of granulated brown sugar which is really unique (and enjoyable). It’s all wrapped in a nicely dense but quite lifted profile. The warmer it gets, the more honeyed it gets. I thought this was best just a tad warmer than cellar temp, and feel this would be a good bridge to white burgundy for those who enjoy quality US chards. Thanks to
@David T again for the intro to this producer!

@Shay A A great bottle, from a great vintage! I'm still holding this, and picked up the '17 last Fall.

Beaune Pinot Noir 2007

3rd bottle in 3 months. This is fully mature, but so delicious. Light, sappy with a cherry creme brûlée note. Excellent QPR! — 3 days ago

Pertuisots Beaune 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

The colour is pale yellow. The nose is forward, elegant and with white orchard fruit. The palate is elegantly chiseled, fresh, pure, with very decent length and a delicious finish. Nice domaine to discover. I love the Côte De Beaune 2017 white vintage. 91-92 pts

Couleur assez pâle, nez avenant et élégant sur les fruits blancs. La bouche est finement ciselée, beaucoup de fraîcheur, pure avec une assez bonne longueur. Très beau domaine à découvrir et j’adore les 2017 en blancs sur la CDB. 91-92 pts

Delicious. Lemon zest, flint, salinity, citrus and baking spice. Richer and more flamboyant than expected. Overdelivers for price. — 2 days ago

Nose starts out a bit funky, but the horsiness blows off and you have cooling sour cherry, soil tones, mineral, moss, good aroma but it needs to open. Palate is gorgeous. Elegant, textured and so fine. Super juicy and clean, stunningly pure. Long. Lovely elegant structure. Good depth and lovey sappy fruit. Clean as a whistle and impressively pure. — 15 days ago

Savigny-les-Beaune Pinot Noir 2017

Fresh tannins that back up the bright red fruit. Could probably use another couple of year for it to come together, but easy drinking and will be a favorite as the summer weather sets in. — 2 days ago
