Monthélie, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Laurent & Karen Boussey

Monthelie Chardonnay

One of the best village white Burgs I’ve had. Beautiful fragrance of stony wet Burgundian earth, sweet marzipan, caramel, and pear. Gorgeous balance in the mouth. Fruit, acid, minerality, length. What a value! — 14 days ago

Pommard Pinot Noir 2016

Wow. So much for the Lombard can’t be drunk for 10 years thing. Mos def will improve over time but you can see the brilliance today. Earthy nose. Some mushroom. Palate is really an elegant version of POmmard. You have the blackberry fruit for sure. And some licorice. But they are balanced and it has nice acidity. The blackberries are more picked off the vine in the wild kind then the dense knock your head off kind. This wine has upside from this score as it ages. High floor given the balance and structure. Bought from fass selections. .... as this opens some spice. ... as this opens nose is getting some dark lilacs. Palate density is more apparent. Still elegant. Internal aromatics are this dense penetrating spicy live blackberry thing. Like inhaling a blackberry bush in the forest. Finish is a bit tight but has a kiss of chocolate. Wow. ... after 3 hours stunning freshness. — 3 days ago

Les Riottes Monthélie 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Wow. Six days open, and still a riveting blast of black cherry and Côte de Beaune sap. A whiff of new oak has blown off with aeration. Elevated acidity matches palpable extract; a very typical 2015. This is as good as Monthelie can be. — 10 days ago

Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Oldest Burg of the night from @David L it was slow to build. Initially nothing on the nose and a bit astringent at first taste. Blossomed an hour later. Nice tertiary bramble and red berry notes. — 5 days ago

Domaine Coche-Dury (J.F. Coche Dury)

Les Rougeots Meursault Chardonnay 1999

Tour d’Argent. Medium gold. Heavy. A stark contrast in color and nose to the 89 Dauvissat. Fine grained acidity develops with air, producing notes of apricot, river stone, minerals, sweet fruit and some spice. Whereas this started strong and maintained its performance all day, the Dauvissat grew in power. Fun to contrast the two. 99 Coche across the portfolio has shown to be amazing. — 3 days ago
