Morges, La Côte

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Clos Saint-Philibert Monopole Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Chardonnay 2008

Decanted ~2hr.
Prior notes apply, very consistent.

A beautiful golden yellow straw color in the glass.

Nose has banana skin, honey roasted almonds, shaved oak and wet chalk.

Palate is bruised golden apple, warmed pear, candied lemon skin with fading oak influence. The acidity is just perfect to the mineral balance. This bottle has plenty of life remaining.

Paired with a gratuitous slab of steelhead trout on the grill, baby fennel, roasted baby spring veggies and grilled lemon.

Fully into a happy place this evening. 👍

Love how Meo-Camuzet laser etches the corks for security, lot traceability and authentication.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2007

Seth Morgen Long

Less marked by stems than I expected but with plenty of wood and fine tannins to bolster the florals, spice and fruit. Wonderful, drinking quite well, perhaps even well into its prime drinking window. — 11 days ago

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1999

Taken to La Bicylette in Carmel. Deep and bright tawny color. Opaque. With 4 hrs of air this showed off its power and fruit in the mouth. Great notes of dark red fruit, smoked game meat, some menthol, pencil lead and graphite. Silky in the mouth. Well structured. Great expression of Syrah. This has entered a great drinking window. Give it air and enjoy. Can’t wait to see what its La La cousins will show in this vintage. — 3 days ago

Les Peuillets Savigny Les Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Light ruby red , moving to a wide garnet rim . Lots of red fruits on the nose , nice elegant , feminine , floral also . In the mouth , more strawberry , red cherry and raspberry fruits , a good dash of acidity keeps the wine in balance . The tannin is pretty ripe and already integrated. Very good length, nicely judged. A rewarding wine for drinking now and over the next 3 years or so. — 5 days ago

Château de Santenay

Mercurey Chardonnay 2015

Hay, lemon, milk, vanilla, nice typical chardonnay nose from lower burgundy. The palate is well balanced with a strong acid backbone, a nice texture with some grip and a silky, milky layer. Lemon all along and a tiny touch of exotic fruits while the temperature raises in the glass. Long lemony finish. Delivers exactly what's expected. Good Sunday night sip to close a sunny and warm weekend — 15 days ago

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1971

Seth Morgen Long

Ethereal, bright and scintillatingly fresh, this was also dense, deep and backwards for its age. The color was red almost all the way to the rim and the structure was firmly intact with only a whisper of very fine sediments. Acidity was present although not out of place. Aromatics and flavors were astoundingly pure and effusive: mixed red pit fruit, black tea, truffle, dried florals and sweet wooden earth. There was touch of dried red citrus and tar which had me thinking the wine had been wound up with a reductive power as tha key to allowing for such glacial aging. If there are perfect wines, this is one. Everything in its place. What a transcendent experience. — 9 days ago

Domaine Jamet

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2008

Not nearly as good as the previous two wines, this Cote Roti is either still a bit young or doesn’t quite have the stuffing I was hoping for. Still a really good wine: just doesn’t compare to the Volnat 1er Cru or that unreal 2003 condrieu. But make no mistake: this restaurant is far and away the best place we went to during our entire week-long trip to Paris. The food is understated, elegant, and beautifully prepared. And the wine list is the best I’ve seen in terms of depth and QPR. Do not miss this place if you’re in Paris! — 4 days ago
