Marsannay, Côte De Nuits

Domaine Coillot

Les Boivins Marsannay Pinot Noir

Nice wine. Opens up well. First and second sip tasted herby. Wasn’t a huge fan - it was okay. But let it breathe and it opens up nicely to reveal ripe black cherries Needs so fat so good with cheese and crackers — 5 hours ago

Domaine Bachelet

Côte de Nuits-Villages Pinot Noir 2015

Turned earth, damp leaves, faint red fruit. Earthy, vegetal notes lead into crunchy apple and cherry. Nice acid with low tannin = juicy. Perfect with TKs pan seared scallops, mushroom risotto and beet salad. Anniversary and Mother’s Day! — 7 days ago

Les Roncières Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Been exploring a lot of younger Domaine Chevillon over this last year. But didn't write any notes. Doing that now. The 2017 Roncières is reliably wonderful. Bright florals, red fruit and delicate spice bouquet. Medium bodied, ample but focused fruit, with some acidity on the palate. Some might react that the fruit profile is a bit straightforward, but I think this lends this wine a lovely sort of simplicity and character on the palate is derived from fine grained tannins. Gently acidic and refined finish. — 4 days ago

I am normally not a fan of this appellation but had this at a tasting some years back. In that moment, I saw some potential for a change. Not disappointed so far.

Nose has: candied, sweet & sour dark, floral black cherries, black plum, blackberries, mix of dry cranberries & pomegranates, blueberries bringing up the rear, moist forrest floor w/ dry leaves, dark spice, alluvial limestone minerals, dry top soil & brush, hint of mint, dark chocolate baking bar, licorice, mid berry cola, typical baking spices, ruby, candied; dark, red, purple & blue florals that have just started to wither.

The mouthfeel is lush with dry powdery tannins. Acidity could be a bit better, not awful though. Candied, sweet & sour dark, floral black cherries, black plum, blackberries, black raspberries, raspberries, mix of dry cranberries & pomegranates, blueberries bringing up the rear, moist forrest floor w/ dry leaves, deep, dark spice with just a touch of heat, incense, alluvial limestone minerals, gripping, grey, volcanics, dry top soil & brush, moist clay, hint of mint, dry sage, black leaning into white pepper, dark chocolate baking bar, caramel, dry mocha powder, licorice, mid berry cola, baking spices; nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, ruby, candied; dark, red, purple & blue florals that have just started to wither. The finish is ruby, rich, elegant, polished good yet, not stunning, falling on to herbs, earth and florals.

@David T @Severn Goodwin what’s not to like about it??

@Jay Kline I find the dark fruit, briar and bark notes generally don't sit well with your average Pinot drinker. I appreciate them.

@Jay Kline it’s a palate preference. Most of the wines I taste from they just aren’t all that interesting. The balance fruits & earth for me is off. Agree with Severn’s briar comment. There are simply better regions you can still find better wines & equal or better value.

Without doubt, for the loot, Duband is my favorite producer in Burgundy.
This has relaxed and is now ready to drink. Subtly, elegance and grace define the core characteristics of this superb pinot.
The nose is understated, but still presents cedar, smoke and ripe cherries. Great, structured mid palate. Tannins are still prominent. Cinnamon notes and vibrant acidity bring home the excellent finish. This still needs more time in the bottle, and I predict further improvement in the long run.

The fruit aromas are gorgeous and complex. The winemaking is terrific and succeeds with careful, yet intentional framing with soft, grainy tannins to offset the grapey and soft mouthfeel. It is heroic. — 4 days ago

WOTN. Great density and layers of dark fruit. So much spice I guessed Vosne. Very much in the zone and an incredible wine. — 12 hours ago

Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot

Echézeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011


Very expressive and complex nose of dark fruits, black cherries, an earthy side, the nose shows some age as well as the delicious palate even it is feels still young, rich and full, without excess or being too extracted or too ripe, big caveat is the very ordinary and short finish not worthy of a real Grand Cru. 91-92

Un nez expressif et complexe avec des fruits noirs, cerises noires cuites, terreux, sous bois, montre unpeu d’âge, en bouche aussi, un style plein et riche mais sans exces, beau vin mais sans la longueur d’un vrai Grand Cru. Ne vaut pas le prix demandé aujourd’hui.
