Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2008

What a nose. Dark, deep, gnarly iron fruit with black cherry and plum and a hint of green pepper. On the palate very pure and detailed. A ferric undertow, very pretty floral notes. This is crazy good stuff. Quite masculine. Decades ahead. — 20 days ago

Lavaut St. Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2008

Torn. Needed to pick up some wine from east bank but didn’t get it done this week. Do I not have wine with prime ribeye, or do I crack one of my favorites that I had hoped to keep for a bit longer... and, now I have one fewer. :) — 2 years ago

I think the 15 was actually the Blanc. The red was an 07.

Lavaux St. Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Upon uncorking the bottle, we felt it was the most structured and bold out of all the wines. Poured into the decanter and revisited after two hours. By then the nose had blossomed into seductive aromas of red cherries and earth, which made us all point to GC in the blind tasting. As the Mugnier developed over the course of the evening, this kept singing and staying linear as indicative of it's youth. Second favorite WOTN. — 2 years ago

Les Amoureuses Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2007

Couldn't ask for a better first red for 2019. I think Stephan Tanzer's 2010 tasting notes for this wine sums up mine pretty well, so I'm just gonna leave this here:

"Bright medium red. High-toned aromas of sweet red fruits, mint and spices; the most detailed and delicate nose among the 2007s today. Wonderfully sweet without being exaggerated in any way, conveying lightly saline, soil-driven flavors of cherry, raspberry, minerals and flowers. Here the terroir speaks more loudly than the vintage. A 2007 of uncanny energy, finishing with fine-grained tannins and enticing lingering perfume."

Arguably, the producer spoke stronger than terrior even here. And just to add, the nose was indeed a great seducer - in that perfect lightly savoury yet fruity-spicy point. It seems like this wine hasn't moved much since 2010, so I can imagine this would stand the test of time. It is drinking so well right now though, so why wait 😉
