Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Soaring nose of wet stones, complex cherries. Early season and late season and mid season. Almost a cassis like intensity. So clean, so vivid and so deep aromas, palate is juicy and super complex already with the classic grippiness of CDC allied with powerfully concentrated flavors and very youthful fruit. Awesome palate and young but not inaccessible. A very stoney mineral and rocky finish. Incredible depth, power and stunningly detailed earthy sweetness. So pure and so clean. A classic and brilliant CDC. — 20 days ago

Champans Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

As of 2016 this estate is at another level. Stunning nose that just lifts the whole room up it’s so pungent. Macaerated red cherries, complex spices, so much spice. Earthy. Mineral with loads of limestone. Hint of roses. Floral component comes through more as wine aerates. Also a savory, feral, meaty element. This nose has it all and constantly changes. Sweet and succulent with forceful, classic BOULEY tannins and wonderful purity and freshness. Palate is showing younger than the nose at this point but is just as stunning for its core of fruit, incredible concentration and ripe, Noble tannins. Long finish hints at so much more but man is this pure, energetic and vivacious. Amazing vivid fruit and you can tell the yields are low and the depth is deep ocean. — 22 days ago

I'm scared to open these... I'm afraid my stash might not make it to 2020 if I start tasting them!

@Severn Goodwin was shockingly open.

"Les Chassignols" Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Serious cellar potential, and that is probably where this one belongs for awhile. Very primary, dense, juicy and structured. Crunchy wild berries, gravelly mineral character and slightly herbaceous. This bottling needs more time than even the grand reserve Juliénas because of its much shorter elevage and early release time. It will surely reward, but showing some mutedness now.

*Day 3* Already considerably more rewarding. The tannin structure is muscular but supple, and there is more mid palate density and clarity. Showing some dried fruit aromas at this stage, but not to the point of feeling tired. I’m more confident that this will drink well in 2021 or perhaps 2020.

Minéral Grand Cru Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2004

House pour champagne at the Keller household. If only I could say the same about mine. It's a really lovely wine. Energy, cut, and finesse. Moderately rich with lots of minerality. Goes well with food or without. Yum! — 19 days ago
