Monthélie, Côte De Beaune

Louis Jadot

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2018

Nose has ripening pineapple, orange peel, melted butter, warmed ripe peach and dried oak.

Palate has waxy orange peel, pineapple, Clementine juice, mild vanilla influence with light acidity and medium finish. Light on palate concentration at this stage.

Decanted 5H. Youthful, a first check on our Fall 2020 acquisitions which will go into hiding until at least 2026+

24H Update:
Nose is overflowing the Gabriel Glas with tropical fruits, ripe pineapple, pineapple core, Clementine orange zest, ripe mango but a touch of alcohol today. Palate has gentle lemon zest, pineapple, so much pineapple, just crazy! We love this wine and it only gets better with aging! Score change from 9.1 > 9.3 today. 🤯

Yes sir, but a bottle with five additional years of aging. This will be in similar form in several more years.

Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge Pinot Noir 2015

🏅Rating 91/100 (4,1⭐)

Nicely developed since the last time I tasted it in December 2019. Reductive opening which accentuates the freshness of the red fruit. Aromas of wild strawberry and fudge. Seasoned with black pepper. Juicy and limestone mineral.

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

Simple Chardonnay but very exquisite and very expensive. Arnaud Ente has reached cult status acne even his most simple cuvees taste great and command stratospheric prices. — 15 days ago

Les Encégnières Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2014

Served blind, very Chardonnay and even Chablis like before it was revealed. A delicious salinity and minerality to go with gorgeous orchard fruit, a slight touch of oak but not too much, great acidity with some roundness and richness that makes it very balanced. Great for the level, very nice bottle. 90-91 easy

Servi à l’aveugle, très Chardo au nez et en bouche, presque Chablisien vu la salinité et une minéralité fort présente. Le nez et la bouche ssont dominés par des fruits du verger, un léger élevage mais fort bien dosé, superbe équilibre abec une belle rondeur pour accompagner cette tension palpable. Très bon. 90-91

"Les Angles" Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Monsieur Boillot makes some of the finest Volnays and Pommards we know. This one no exception, medium dark rubi color, nose of flowers and dark cherries, medium length, complex and elegant, with highly civilized tannins. Great stuff ! — 14 days ago

Pierre girardin meursault le limozin.

Nose: saline.

Palate. Briny. Some green apple skin. Some richness. Not much. Very chablisien.

As this opens a bit more fat. But balanced.

Domaine Jacques Carillon

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2015

Pale to mid Lemon in colour. Stone fruit aromas. Mild stone fruit on the palate. Some good mineral and medium acid. Cannot see a long future for these 2015 village white burgundies with the warmer vintage although this Puligny-Montrachet is pleasant drinking now. I must visit a 2015 Premier Cru to see how it’s travelling. — 5 days ago

Les Plants Nobles Pinot Noir 2019

Fancy label, cool buildings. Smells good. Berries, apple skins and some kinda tonic. Flavors are simple, fresh and easy. Balance is nice. Nice herbal, plant leaf stuff in the mix. Not big at all. — 16 days ago

Domaine des Héritiers Clos des Couchereaux Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2003

I thought this one was a bit odd, little bit of acetone going on in my bottle. Then the forest leaves came out. BH 88-91, Tanzer 90. — 15 days ago

A producer that I have been buying for several years. This was showing lime, peach, citrus fruits, mineral, limestone, chalk & white flower. Youthful & racy that should develop nicely. — 3 days ago
