"Les Chassignols" Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Serious cellar potential, and that is probably where this one belongs for awhile. Very primary, dense, juicy and structured. Crunchy wild berries, gravelly mineral character and slightly herbaceous. This bottling needs more time than even the grand reserve Juliénas because of its much shorter elevage and early release time. It will surely reward, but showing some mutedness now.

*Day 3* Already considerably more rewarding. The tannin structure is muscular but supple, and there is more mid palate density and clarity. Showing some dried fruit aromas at this stage, but not to the point of feeling tired. I’m more confident that this will drink well in 2021 or perhaps 2020.

Will definitely benefit with more time in the cellar. Cheers!

Domaine Jean-Marc Morey

Grèves Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Despite feeling a bit tired and one-dimensional on day 1, overnight this has blossomed with sappy ripe cherry fruit, sweet florals, smokey turned earth, and musky, piney underbrush. Acid is driving along and there is still some grip. Delightful! — 4 days ago

Vin Jaune Côtes du Jura Savagnin 2009

17.5/20 (93/100) Яркий и насыщенный аромат сушеных яблок и груш, сухих белых грибов, табака, бриоши и каучука. Тельное с высокой кислотностью. Сдобное тесто и табак доминируют во вкусе. Экспрессивное. — 7 days ago

Chateau St. Jean

California Chardonnay 2015

Color of saturated gold, beautiful. Nose of nutty, buttery flavors, spice, sprite, dense flowering note like Riesling, some mineral, and some ripe pineapple and banana. Taste is mouthful with zesty tinkling flavors leading the way, spicy, and less sweet than suggested by nose. Second sips has more sweetness from honey, same spice, and more zesty rind. Aftertaste is dominated by spicy taste from alcohol and a bit short of complexity. I do feel the nose alone earns her a nice rating. — 10 days ago
