Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1991

bought on release, given away compared to current pricing, opened tonight. Gorgeous wine from the get go with room to run, super nose of iron, a bit of meat, licorice, dark fruit, all echoed on the palate, dark fruit and plum, hints of smoke, just gorgeous. Silky palate. Wife rarely has more than a glass or so, but tonight kept pace with me the entire bottle, emptied too quickly. 91 reds are a forgotten vintage, far better than considered when released in the shadow of 90. — 11 days ago

This is a great bottle!
Agreed on '90 dominance, can't say I've had any '91's yet, but I'll find some with careful storage. 🤞

@Alan Weinberg I have enjoyed ‘91 burgundies

Domaine Nico

Soeur et Freres Grand Mere Pinot Noir 2019

This is a pleasant example of a high altitude, cool climate Pinot noir. Pale Ruby, high acidity, low tannins with lean and light intensity flavors of red cherry, cranberry, orange peel, black tea, and forest floor. It’s a zippy wine, very crisp and clean. I’d love a little more body but it is still a good value. — 3 days ago

Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Dark red and black fruits make way into earth and mushroom flavors. The same earthy mushroomy flavors dominate the nose. This wine has aged gracefully and maintains good tannin structure and acidity. — 13 days ago

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Fantastic - and peaking now. Earthy, but elegant with fine-grained tannins and a persistent, mineral finish. Precise and complex. Aromas and flavors include earth (mushroom and spice), subtle floral and herb notes, and dark cherry fruit. Showing really well. — 5 days ago

Le Mons Helios Monthelíe Pinot Noir 2013

About 2 years from my last btl. Another spectacular showing. This has the density and poise of grand cru fruit. On the nose: pure sweet strawberry, cherry, balsam and spice. Clear stylish, well-judged, oak influence. Lovely acidiry and fantastically balanced density and weight. Long finish. This has plenty of upside still. Who says 2013s can't be exciting? — 2 days ago

Liaison Pinot Noir 2019

Damn. Liaison....every year. 2019 is all about elegance and femininity. Grand Cru stuff. Burgundian by weight, Germanic in tone. Impossible expression crammed in the most dainty little box. Looks like it could be thin, but it's not. Murky, unfiltered, straddles the tradition and the wild. Bright red cherries and mossy forresty, earth...strawberries and rosemary on the periphery. What a bargain. — 3 days ago

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Definitely the best bottle of this we have had - and unfortunately our last! No decant, but let this “slow ox” for several hours. Fun wine to cap off the week of our son’s first birthday. Dusty rose and some lovely earthy red fruit on the nose - almost like cherries or strawberries growing in a mushroom patch. Exquisite mouthfeel - hits every part of the mouth, perfect acid, great length, exceptionally seamless. Really one of the best wines I’ve had, ever. Paired with a simple roast chicken with mushrooms cooked in the chicken drippings. — 17 days ago

Awesome wine, probably 10-15+ years to go, 99's might live forever.
