Love this cuvee. Darker nose than the Les Vergelesses. Tree bark, moss, mid season cherries. Huge minerals. Almost a limestone feeling. Wild apples. Wet earth. Savory. Sweet. Feral and wild. Just stunning. Even some black cherry after some air. Just awesome. Big huge red and black cherry fruit. Lovely electric almost Rieslingesque limestone minerality. Explosive and deep with awesome purity and earthy sweetness. Terrific delineation of flavor and so much material yet so light and delicate even. Only in Burgundy. Super complex and ripe and big tannins suggest even more aging if one desires. — 2 months ago

Just brilliant. There is a zen harmony to these whites that is utterly magical. Nose of mineral, applesauce, apple spices, pear, sprigs of fresh grass just unreal and super unique. Not your typical white burg. Palate is just delightful. Saline and super mineral with green apple and unreal balance and purity. My god this is so ultra pure. Clean as a whistle with terrific, length, minerality and balance. Unreal long finish that is just perfect. What a great wine. — a month ago

@Pär Sjölinder yes it is but he can’t deal with Burgundian bureaucracy so I understand. And he’s still got the Aussie wine.

What a nose. Wide open. Big cherry. Mint, menthol, some black cherry inflections and even cherry flower. Wow. Moss. Soil tones. Very very high toned nose. Impressive. Jumps out of glass at you. Red apple as well. Just awesome. Palate is ripe and rich with lovely finesse and huge cherry overload. Lovely freshness and purity with a nice helping of diet. Lovely texture and tang with terrific, finesse, energy and balance. Love this. Lithe and very fine tannins with lovely earthy sweetness. What a mouthfeel. Love the hint of bitter, succulent sour cherry on the finish. — 2 months ago

Gorgeous nose of lemon, minerals, lime rock candy, incredibly refined.

So clean and balanced with a terrific long finish. — a month ago

Les Genouvrées Bourgogne 2014

On open ...Nose has some smoke. Palate is citrus rind. Very mineral.

-as it opens very clean mineral opulence if that makes sense Nose is improving as well. Smoke disappears and it’s very mineral.

Just a very different wine. Such a unique style.

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2014

Wow. Utterly magnificent for village puligny. Genius wine. Worth $100 easy. When morel hits it he hits it. Nose is so elegant. Fresh rainwater. Yellow flowers. Beautiful. The palate is sweet mineral goodness. Like a sweet rock was pulverized in your mouth. Long finish. A wine of beauty and distinction. Too bad French over regulation caused him to throw in the towel.

As this aerates the nose is beautiful. The palate is richer. But in such an elegant way.

This needs an hour to peak. Wow. This is gorgeous. Grand cru gorgeous. Wow. Hand over land. Lol. The ultimate king slayer to bring to a burgundy tasting.
