Mazis Chambertin

Domaine Bruno Clavelier

Vieilles Vignes Les Corbeaux Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Vineyard sits right next to Mazis. Mid garnet in color. Has a certain sparkle to it. Light char note to it from the oak. Leans on the lighter side for a Premiere Cru, nonetheless great purity. — 24 days ago

Second take on this one in the same vintage. Prior notes apply for the nose which shows barrel and oak rather strongly along with a wonderful, ripe cherry and some hay. The palate is good with a nice acid backbone creating a frame in which that nice ripe cherry can be in full effect. There is width and grip, and some tannins to kick things in the rear, they deliver a slightly drying, dusty mouthfeel that gives way to a very long cherry powered finish. We had it along some quite spicy (let's face it hot) chicken drums and it stood its ground. Good one. — 11 days ago

Underwhelming bottle from one of my fav producers. Makes me wonder if these wines age well? 2008 showed more like 1998 - color has faded, nose is evolved and the palate was eluding. — 5 days ago

Developed with time to show more fruit and weight but still a poor showing IMO.

Added weight as it was open. Nose was very interesting. Enjoyed that more than the palate.

Domaine Duroche

Le Clos Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2016

It's been a while since I last used Delectable mainly because I haven't been drinking much (thanks for the kind reminder @Delectable Wine). The whole COVID situation has made it a whole lot harder to find good wines, especially in my hometown. Fortunately, we stumbled upon a list at a restaurant whose owner happens to be an avid wine lover too. While we definitely had to pay a premium for this bottle, it was so good to finally drink a well-stored red in the tropics, and a favourite producer at that.

Typical Duroche elegance, marked with distinct village characters and the vintage's fruity exuberance. The nose is ripe and generous, with fresh black cherries, crushed strawberries, pretty lavender charm, and a touch of earth. A whiff of volatile acidity seems to lift the fruit here. The palate follows with plush and supple texture, darker fruits taking centre stage, some warm spices, and a snappy finish. Expected a little more mineral crunch and a redder fruit profile, but this was still so easy to drink. Transparent and pure. Definitely qualifies as a red kabi.

Domaine Bruno Clair

Clos du Fonteny Monopole Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2008

The acidity is starting to round out a bit with earthy notes starting to show. Dark cherries and raspberries with a bit of a tart finish. Still feel like this one still has years ahead. — 7 hours ago

Les Goulots Vieille Vigne Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Wow, what a beauty. Decanted for 2 hours, intensely aromatic, precise and energetic showing black raspberries, candied red cherries, flowers, hints of orange peel and packed with minerals. Finishes with exceptional length. The tannins are present and firm but the wine’s superb balance along with the combination of Fourrier’s style and the ripe vintage make it in a wonderful place now and with a certainty to improve with age. — a day ago

Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Happy Fathers Day..spiced sugarcane lacquered quail, seafood gumbo, and sweet cabbage ..a gift shipped from Commander's Palace (New Orleans)..with a beautiful Burgundy..YUM!!

Double decant and pour. A stellar medium dark ruby red color. On the nose: bursting from the glass are tart cherries, red currants, forest floor, eucalyptus. Taste: raspberry, minerals, bacon, wet leaves with a slightly spiced cherry long finish!!..It still has a little tannic kick...a terrific wine early in its drinking window (really enjoying it now), ready to go a number of years....
