La Chatenière Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Nose has cooled lemon curd, light apple cider vinegar, cold pineapple, moist moss, oxidized green apple slice, damp clove and very wet grassy notes.

Palate has pineapple core, bruised green pears, faint lanolin, light honey notes, light under-ripe yellow peach and white waxy notes round out the finish.

Double decant with 12H rest. A Saint Aubin for the trending natural wine crowd without being over the top 'natural'. 92-93 Points.

Paired to a grilled slab of Steelhead Trout, perfection.

24H Update:
Nose has fresh green apple peel, warmed yellow apple slice and white waxy notes.
Palate has warm pear, slight honey and under-ripe pineapple.
Much improved; Score change 92>93.

Substance Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

9.9

This was my wine of the night. Heavy oxidized style, nutty components on the nose that seamlessly transposed to the palate. Moldy yeast components, almost beer like yellow color. Sherry like taste sometimes. Just a jaw dropping wine that blew the other champagnes in the flight away by miles 🚀. — 17 days ago

Les Lavières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Lyle Fass
9.3

Have not had since 2019. Nose is brambly with a cherry melange. Very earthy. Some wood shavings. A bit aromatically closed for now. Palate is juicy, very concentrated and sappy with great purity. Really long but also seems backwards. But terrific fruit and intensity. Very very sappy. Needs a few more years but you can the low yields of 16 gave this wine density and tons of material.

After an hour this has softened up and is super juicy and the tannins have calmed down. 9.2 to 9.3. Lavieres is such good terroir.

Clos de la Maréchale Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2007

Pop and pour. This time my wife said it: this is good, but is now inching downward. On the nose: soft game, cherry, brown sugar, spice, bark, savory herbs. On the palate: good acidity up front, cola, root beer, soft medicinal herbs. Fantastic density, and completely secondary, but leaning tertiary. A touch of tannin hanging on at the finish. In a very good place, but definitely beginning its decline. — 19 days ago

Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Gorgeous floral bouquet features red roses, lilac, lavender and cherry blossoms above ripe red and black cherry, ripe raspberry, grilled watermelon and morels. Tart cherry palate dials into the silky groove suddenly, hinting at rose water, but resembling raspberries in a forest rain. Lightest cinnamon bark adds warmth, violet and hibiscus bites emerge, and the whole flaunts a long and sensuous length of shimmer that mystifies.

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

This wine is just like Jean-Jacques Morel's silhouette, which is very French and a little unkept. Unmanicured. This is not traditional Bourgogne Blanc of crisp acid and peppered oak. This is Chardonnay in ripe and wild form. Free spirited and behind a nondescript label, there’s an aspect of ironic cool and I could see natural wine shops selling this for $50+ if only they knew Jean-Jacques ever existed.

Glowing unfiltered hay. Aromas of lemon curd and fresh bright pineapple with a hint of vanilla. There's VA but it works. Salty sour flavors of apricots and peaches with a persistent finish.

Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía 2019

This is a good bottle that packs it’s weight into a very affordable price. Complex and lingering - it goes a long way. Medium body with bright acids, tasteful concentrated blackberry, and a touch of pepper. Great with this country fried steak. — 19 days ago
