Monthélie, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Georges Glantenay et Fils

Les Champs Fulliots Monthélie 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

These wines take a while to open up but once it happens there is some type of magic. The nose is stunning with a mix of red fruits that are fresh and ripe, herbaceous notes, and earthy tones, black tea and minuscule hints of leather. The plate is sheer elegance, the fruits show tart the flowers and herbs sing fresh and the texture is classic burgundy. — 4 days ago

Les Caillerets Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

9.6

Oldest Meursault vines of the estate and maybe the rarest elite 1er Cru in Meursault. Stunning minerality. A mineral stank. Huge florals as well. Iodine. Green apple. Ripe pear. Elite aromas. Ethereal. Palate is so so elegant. Achingly elegant. Amazing minerals. So so complex. Dense, sappy and structured. Rich and ripe but so elegant. It’s young. Super young. Needs 3-4 years but wow is this dense. Wow is this structured. Wow is this long. As it opens there is a profound textural element that develops on the finish. This is getting so so good. — 9 hours ago

L'Ormeau Meursault Chardonnay 2015

! !Yarivyo Wine Score!
9.0

This 2015 Meursault Lormeau from Domaine Fabien Coche is my spring star, really enjoyed the wine, so balanced, smooth and delicious.
A lovely blend of summer stone fruit, citrus, mineral and a hint of butter, medium to full velvet smooth body, with delicious acidity and a lovely finish that is both fruity and fresh.
A buy again wine no doubt.
My score 90, drink to 2022

Monthelie Pinot Noir 2015

A bit off on open. At least a 30 minute decant is necessary.

Getting better at 30 minutes. Cherry. Some licorice. Amazing vivacity. Almost sweet cherry fruit.

Nose is cherry flowers.

Rouge Meursault Pinot Noir 2015

Nose has bright red cherry, ripe tart cherry, tree bark/vine stems, ripe plum, semi-moist soil, moist chalk and mashed black cherry.

Palate has over-ripe cherry, dried tart cherry, dried cranberry, smoked anise, moss, dried blackberry, bright acidity, beautifully earthy textures and slightly drying finish. Delicious.

An interesting tasting experience, Meursault is only planted to about 4-5% Pinot Noir, so finding one is a challenge to say the least.

Decanted 3 hours, still needs more time in bottle and decanter. I'd love to see this in 5-6 years, unfortunately our only bottle.

*R.I.P. Ellis Marsalis, "Bucky" Pizzarelli, Manu Dibango, Bill Withers, Kenny Rogers and Joseph Shabalala. It's been a tough few weeks of losses in the music business. Stay Safe out there everyone.

Hospices de Beaune Cuvée Général Muteau Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

I love when you put your nose in the glass and it’s so easy to say Burgundy.
Expressive nose of mixed berries, violets and earth. All the parts gracefully integrated. Drinks great now and upside ahead. Happy to say this wine is not suffering from the ‘09 heat.

9.1

Really good but not a bottle that shows a lot of character. Fairly modern. Bright and great acid. Super clean and would love to visit again in 5 years but not dying to have another bottle either. It does show how pleasant the 11 vintage can be — 13 days ago

9.5

What a nose. Meursault symphony. Amazingly deep mineralIty. So much limestone. Lime blossom. Butter, toasted apples, iodine, floral, wet earth, super complex and inviting aromas. Reeks of terroir. Palate is ripe and rich but incredibly elegant and wow this has superb finesse and freshness. Lovely almost weightless mouthfeel. Elegant to the max. Easily 1er Cru quality. Long and persistent finish. Nice sap and grip on the finish. Awesome lingering minerality. Beautiful. Love the marriage of opulence and cut. Superb. This is opening up so well. Wow. — 9 hours ago

Les Combettes Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

Directly smelling the wine from the bottle I started to salivate. The wine has a nice pale yellow color. The nose on citrus, apple, white flowers. On the palate, a wine which is just beginning to transform and begins to show second phase features but the attack is so beautiful with notes of lemon, and a dose of limestone, like white chabli which begs for another sip very quickly. Notes of white flowers make the whole complex. A very interesting length. A premier cru that is worth its price here. — 3 days ago
