Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir 1977

Who would have guessed that this would be so good! A lot of funk when opened but once that blew off it was raspberries, healthy soil, a hint of mushrooms, fine black pepper, and red cherries all the way down.

A great level and impeccable cork attests to great storage, which will have helped keep this guy alive; but given the quality I'm also pretty certain it must be from declassified fruit (likely given the vintage). If I were to bet I'd say a combination of Gevrey an MSD.

Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger Champagne Rosé

David T

This is the first time I’ve been able to purchase their Rosé champagne in the USA. I’ve been curious about it for some time now. It certainly hasn’t disappointed. On the nose; lots of pink rose petals, ripe, rich, lightly perfumed; black cherries, cherries, raspberries, strawberries, watermelon near the rhine & notes of citrus. Yeast, baguette crust, nicely understated presence of chalkiness, soft volcanic minerals and red roses. The fruit profile on the palate is closer to Perrier Laurent and the soft razor sharp palate chalkiness is similar to Billecart Salmon Rosé. Ripe, rich, lightly perfumed; black cherries, cherries, raspberries, strawberries, watermelon near the rhine & notes of citrus. Yeast, baguette crust, nice understated presence chalk, saline, sea shells, soft volcanic minerals and lots of pink rose petals and fresh red roses. It’s not going to replace my Billecart Salmon (not sure if we will see more of it allocated to the U.S.) but it’s close. Very nice N/V Rosé Champagne. — 11 hours ago

I have some newer version from them. Let drink them up in the future. Not much Gaugichot left acreage wise
