Tres Girard Morey St. Denis Pinot Noir 2016

I can't help but crack a smile when drinking the Lignier wines of recent. There's just this lovely transparent fruit, often set of a racy, mineral-driven frame. The 2016 Tres Girard is no different - it leads with explosive scents of black cherry, rose, and sarsaparilla, followed by a red berry-saturated palate with strong salinity and subtle earth notes. Plain delicious, a bottle for one. — a month ago

Absolutely agree. Lignier has been on a tear for the last 5 or so vintages.

Domaine Hudelot-Baillet

Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Dark cherries, blueberries and floral undertones. Medium bodied, supple, ripe and a lovely acidity. The cherries follow through to the end. — 5 days ago

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

Les Belles Filles Pernand-Vergelesses Chardonnay 2017

Vibrant pale lemon with aromas of ripe fruits, citrus, sweet spice, nutty and white floral notes, an elegant nose. On the palate, ripe apple, pear, lemon and subtle wet stone with a creamy texture. Long finish, medium-bodied, well balanced with medium+ acidity, ending with great depth and a very light touch of minerality. Nice! — 17 days ago

Domaine Laurent Roumier

Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Took time to coax it open in the glass. Great structure with a strong core of black and red fruit. Could probably use a couple more years in the cellar for it to soften up a bit more. — 14 days ago

Les Ruchots Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Oof, lovely balance of power and finesse. Wild-grown red and black cherries/berries with a tug-of-war between earth and fruit. Some clay. Tannins still need some integration and this vintage would be best with a few more years; 4-8 ideal. Lovely to drink; enjoyed with duck which was a treat to pair. — a day ago

Domaine Antoine Jobard

Sur Le Sentier du Clou Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2015

Huh, not nearly as good as previous btls...should I start to worry about '15 burg whites? Glad I've been steadily drinking them. On the nose: still has lovely noble reduction, but covering a bruised apple in honey note, lemon oil. On the palate: excellent acidity, white pepper and lemon. This all sounds good, but this wine lacked a certain intensity I expect from this producer. White pepper finish. — 22 days ago

Domaine Ponsot

Clos des Monts Luisants Vieilles Vignes Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Aligoté 2013

Pale gold in colour. Skinnsy aromas with an oxidative note like manzanilla. Lemon blossom with some mineral flinty notes. A lot happening and changing - after a few hours a bruised old Apple note. I think in a line up of Chardonnays in Burgundy one might pick this as the 100% Aligote - it is sufficiently different. Expensive for an Aligote but then again it is Ponsot. Laurent Ponsot is fanatical about accurately translating the terroir - so there is no malolactic fermentation, no new oak, no batonnage,no fining, and no filtration. According to Laurent, the Monts Luisants hillside has been planted with white grapes since the Middle Ages or before. There used to be a little Chardonnay and a hybrid known as Pinot Gouges but by 2004 the latter 2 were grubbed out so that from 2005 the Clos des Monts Luisants Vieilles Vignes consists purely of Aligote from the original 1911 planting. A Monopole and one of the 1001 Wines. — a month ago

Domaine Jobard Morey

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Coming from the old quarry behind the Perrieres premier cru area. Very aromatic nose of white fruit, some mint and a touch of oak it seems. The palate is round, rich, mineral and intense, yet with energy and a lot of precision of flavours, i am sure in a blind tasting that the friends would call a much higher level wine, at minimum a Meursault Villages, what a great success from Valentin Jobard.

Vignes provenant de l’ancienne carrière derrière le fameux premier cru Perrieres. Vin très aromatique, menthe, fruits blancs, une touche boisée mais de façon judicieuse il me semble. Attaque et bouche ronde avec une tension appuyée, quelle texture et des saveurs franches et précises, belle énergie. Bien curieux à l’aveugle de voir ce que les amis prédiraient, bien meilleur que son niveau, superbe. J’en veux d’autres! 90-91 à ce niveau.

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2015

The final wine in the Downs Club Burgundy tasting - brief notes. I know, way too early to be drinking a 2015 Clos de la Roche.... but somebody has to do it😉. A closed brooding nose again. Full bodied, sweet and sappy. Red cherry. The nose opened up after a while to the perfume you would expect. Long future ahead - 10 to 15 years. — a month ago
