Domaine Chanson (Chanson Père et Fils)

Bastion de L'Oratoire Marsannay Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir has never been my go-to varietal, but this is what I hope to find whenever I do go there. Turned earth, mushroom, and slight barnyard blend seamlessly with bright cherry, cranberry, and blueberry. M acid and M+ tannins, this was subtle while remaining complex and beautifully balanced. — 22 days ago

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Gave this 90 min of air in a decanter before touching it. Dark tawny and mostly translucent. Exciting nose. Notes of sour cherries, rhubarb, slate stone, some menthol and iron, old desk wood, spice and a touch of kirsch. Dusty fruit in the mouth with a long finish. Can probably benefit from a bit more age to develop more complexity. Plenty of life in front of it and pretty dynamic tonight. — 4 days ago

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir

This has a wonderfully succulent nose. Soft red fruit, that wonderful classy burg depth. On the palate great balance and super fresh for its age. Nice balance at the middle and a good finish. The front is the thing here and the rest is a bit more prosaic s as often is the way with Clos Vougeot, but this is a lovely wine in great shape. — 5 days ago

Got to pop some special bottles when my good friend Shawn came in to town!

What a bottle brought by Shawn! I asked him to bring a killer bottle of burgundy that he thought would impress and he nailed it. At 23/24 yrs old, the concentration here was impeccable. Surprisingly dark in the glass with a slightly fading rim, wafting from the glass were muddled and stewed raspberries, blackberries, pomegranate, clove and forest floor. Acidity carries this well on the palate with a resolved and balanced profile. Slightly chewy, showing the power of the fruit, with sweet tobacco and cedar at the finish. This still has years to go! Nice

Very impressive for its contemporary presentation. Very unusual for a burg. Very quaffable at this early stage. Seek this one out!

More like my daughter is eating like a queen, @David L. I’m just here to settle the tab - and tip a glass, of course 😀
