Le Tannat

2007 vintage. A 100% Tannat made by a Bordeaux producer (Philippe Courrian also owns Chateau La Tour Haut Caussan) in the Languedoc ( Corbières). Sounds interesting, and it is very good indeed. A little bit animal-like at first, give it some time to breathe in order to discover a panoply of dried herbs, spices and dried black fruits. Rustic, powerful and tannic, still very much alive. Long dry finish. Might not be for everyone, but it has a lot of personality. Try with a wild boar stew. Abv. 14%. Production about 2000 bottles. — 3 days ago

Auxey-Duresses Chardonnay 2017

P/q +. Zeer frisse en zuivere witte bourgogne. Van een producent gelegen aan de D974 van Beaune naar Puligny. Niet zo complex als de naastgelegen appellations maar zeer interessant! — 11 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2013

Certainly one of the estate's fine cuvée. As the Cote du Py produces concentrated and deep Gamay wines, the Morgons produced there develop nuances which gain depth with a few years of aging. Here, the 2013 is still very lively, and full of delicacy, carrying a potential for another 5 years and a Burgundy Pinot-Noir side which gives it a lot of refinement. A light wine, full of nuances.

Assurément l’une de belle cuvée du domaine. La cote du Py produisant des gamay concentrés et profonds, les Morgon qui y sont produits développent des nuances qui prennent du relief avec quelques années de garde. Ici, le 2013 est encore bien vif, et plein de délicatesse, portant un potentiel pour encore bien 5 ans et un côté Pinot-Noir bourguignon qui lui donne beaucoup de raffinement. Un vin léger, tout en nuances.

Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2017

One of the most successful cuvées of the domain, which gives to taste the possible junction between Beaujolais and Burgundy. Wine with a simple and delicious refinement. The woody notes blend harmoniously with Gamay and terroir notes. All in nuances with a beautiful airy aromatic concentration.

Une des cuvées les plus réussies du domaine, qui donne à goûter la possible jonction entre Beaujolais et Bourgogne. Vin au refinement simple et gourmand. Le boisé se mêle harmonieusement au gamay, et aux notes de terroir. Tout en nuances avec une belle concentration aromatique aérienne.

Château Philippe-le-Hardi

Clos Philippe-Le-Hardi Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Chardonnay

Star bright yellow gold. Abundant, bosomy nose of yellow apples and magnolia blossom. Medium palate yields the same though the flowers show more as birch and citrus rind. Firm, almost tannic acidity — decanting recommended — that softens with some air but makes for a perfect seafood wine. Lengthy finish. 2015 was one of those classic years across Europe. Here’s a perfect entry into Bourgogne Blanc from that year. Drink now through 2030 when you don’t want to spring for Mersault or another paled higher end quaff. — a month ago
