"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.

Le Tesson Meursault Chardonnay 2016

Gorgeous Meursault Tessons from Fichet. Floral, citrusy, great acidity and balance, wonderful now and will develop with 5 to 7 years in bottle, maybe more. A great chardonnay to enjoy or hold. — 6 months ago

Lacks the aromatic and mineral complexity but fantastically pure fruit and balance. Maybe too bright and clean and energetic. — 3 months ago

Côte du Roussillon Ciel Liquide Red Rhône Blend

Watch out famed northern Rhône producers. This label has a long way to go but the wine is already a world class killer of Syrah giants. Ripping. I would even say give it a minute it just unfolds more and more intensely. Only red wine I’ve ever successfully paired with some earthy chocolate too. — 5 months ago
