Ladoix, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2013

We're sharing some pregame bottles before my corporate, year end holiday celebration! These bottles will likely be miles ahead of the wines to be enjoyed the moment we step out of the hotel room...Jamais en Vain, Toujours in Vin!

All prior notes apply, such a wonderful bottle!

Clos de la Cure Pommard Pinot Noir 2017

9.4

This is brilliant. Huge expressive nose. So clean and full of mid season cherries, spice, flowers, mineral, licorice, high end bubble gum. So dope. Palate has stunning sweetness and purity. Oh man what a sphere. Stunning ripe tannins. Beautiful purity and so delicate. What a Pommard. Showing stupid elegance. True wow. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Ripe and juicy tannins and such complexity. A lot of material. Awesome. — 10 days ago

Pommard-Rugiens Bas 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

A little rustic at first - Decant for ca 30min. After 10 years pretty good! Still very juicy and young at heart with Morello 🍒 and chalk but also plenty of secondary flavors - earthy, forest floor, bark, black tea, blueberry on the back palate pine needles - the tannins are still quite dominant this can go for 5-10 more years. Direct from Lyle Fass and therefore not widely available. — 10 days ago

He definitely was not reliable so it sounds like it probably happened.

Sur Gamay Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has oxidized yellow apple, pineapple core, peach pit, lemon zest and older, wet oak.

Palate has day old pineapple slice, dried lemon peel, creamy butter, green banana peel, zingy acidity with nice sandstone-like minerals on the medium-long finish.

Seems quite advanced for a 2016 vintage, a nose and (sort of) palate of a wine 6+ years its senior. Our only bottle, likely we could get another, but at ~$50 it's not worth it to us. I did decant for about 90m, based on experience with other 2016 S-A wines, not sure if this was enough time for this bottle, but it is showing improvement with glass time.

At hour 3+ the semi-ripe, tropical fruits are finally making an entrance 👍

Les Pezerolles Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Classic Pezerolles. Stoney, surreal and layered. Just gorgeous. Tightest out of the gates so far. So floral. Gorgeous lithe elegant and ephemeral cherries. Cherry flower. Sick nose. Licorice and flowers. Just amazing. Juicy and complex with stunning intensity and finesse. Stoney throughout. Gorgeous elegance allied with sweet fruit and all on a silken string. So juicy with great breadth and depth also so so so long. Stunning. Ripe and Stoney tannins. Such a wonderful Pezerolles. — 10 days ago

Les Bons Feuvres Beaune Pinot Noir 2015

Such a good value Burgundy. Sweet, earthy, gravelly notes along with sweet cherry sap. Lively, soft cherry and limestoney flavors. Nice acidity too. Not particularly concentrated or complex but more than makes up for it worth friendliness. — 19 days ago

Les Caillerets Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2009

We start well the weekend. A delicious wine still full of energy ... a more or less open nose but I just opened it. On the nose, citrus and pineapple notes. In the mouth a nice maturity of fruit with flavors of coconut, pineapple, white flowers and honeysuckle. Not at all heavy with a nice minerality and a little bitterness on the finish. A style that I like very much ... a delight ... — 2 days ago

Domaine du Chateau de Meursault

Meursault-Perrieres 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

Deep and intense lemon color. Very expressive on the nose, with ripe lemon, green apple and some stone fruits. Opulent in the palate but with less acidity than I was expecting for this type of wine. Long finish. Delicious wine. — a day ago
