Gorgeous nose of lemon, minerals, lime rock candy, incredibly refined. Palate is like a baby Corton Chatlrlemagne with a kiss of oak, luscious Golden minerality, incredibly compact and complete with terrific energy, awesome sap and concentration with terrific purity and density. So clean and balanced with a terrific long finish. — 16 days ago

What a nose. Wide open. Big cherry. Mint, menthol, some black cherry inflections and even cherry flower. Wow. Moss. Soil tones. Very very high toned nose. Impressive. Jumps out of glass at you. Red apple as well. Just awesome. Palate is ripe and rich with lovely finesse and huge cherry overload. Lovely freshness and purity with a nice helping of diet. Lovely texture and tang with terrific, finesse, energy and balance. Love this. Lithe and very fine tannins with lovely earthy sweetness. What a mouthfeel. Love the hint of bitter, succulent sour cherry on the finish. — a month ago

Love this cuvee. Darker nose than the Les Vergelesses. Tree bark, moss, mid season cherries. Huge minerals. Almost a limestone feeling. Wild apples. Wet earth. Savory. Sweet. Feral and wild. Just stunning. Even some black cherry after some air. Just awesome. Big huge red and black cherry fruit. Lovely electric almost Rieslingesque limestone minerality. Explosive and deep with awesome purity and earthy sweetness. Terrific delineation of flavor and so much material yet so light and delicate even. Only in Burgundy. Super complex and ripe and big tannins suggest even more aging if one desires. — a month ago

Domaine Chanson (Chanson Père et Fils)

Les Caradeux Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Medium acidity, medium bodied with minerals, lemon peel on palate and loamy earth on the finish. — 2 months ago

Domaine Cornu-Camus

Les Vignes Blanches Pernand-Vergelesses Chardonnay 2018

Oyster shell, wet stones, fleur de sel and an almost Aligoté-like leesiness. Absence of fruit and nut on the nose; 100% nerve-splitting minerals. Severe and demanding, then yields to a palate of macadamia and clementine. Long, acid and complex finish that hints at what’s coming in 5-6 years. Easily the most intriguing villages-level Pernand Blanc I’ve ever tasted. — a month ago

Les Vergelesses Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Garnet color. Sour cherries, licorice, sous-bois and spice from the oak on the nose. The oak softened significantly over the years but it is still present with the red and dark fruits on the palate. Nice acidity and medium+ to long finish. — 2 months ago
