Caillerets Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Stunning. Is there a better Caillerets? Not for me. What a nose. Black cherries, licorice, morello cherries, even some cranberry, dried leaves, stunning and opens up beautifully. Palate is super elegant. Super fine. Amazing fruit density yet so elegant and superb minerality. This is profound. Earthy sweet fruit. Velvety tannins and huge mineral force. Long profound finish. Goes on and on. — 9 days ago

Les Grillés Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2016

WOW! Finally was able to find a bottle in Japan and had to go back to the shop to pick up the rest of their inventory (sadly only another bottle of 2017). Ripe berries, savoury spices and nice long finish. Yet the acidity keeps everything in check so it never gets jammy. Tons to love here!! @Aaron Tan finally found one!! — 12 days ago

Thats the Les Grilles ❤️ One serious gamay it is. Haha. Glad you finally found it and liked it. Probably my favourite "new" Beaujolais producer.

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2017

A lovely Bourg Blanc. On the nose: a touch of noble reduction, meyer lemon, sweet apple, a hint of vanilla...so elegant. On the palate: fantastic acidity, and denser than the nose suggests...more lemon, apple, tarragon. A very juicy finish. So good. — 2 days ago

Pierre Moncuit

Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

My first encounter with this Moncuit and it's safe to say that the quality here is at least as good as their more famed namesake (at least for me). On a side note, does anyone know if or how Pierre and Robert are related?

This juice is plain electric. Not viciously austere like some growers these days, but definitely lean. The nose is fresh, floral, and chalky. On the palate, it is airy yet quite punchy with the citrus and mineral notes. There's a sliver of biscuit and nuts in the lingering finish. Builds with more minerality as it opens up with air. Really enjoyed this wine with dinner. Superb value!

Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Stunning nose, amazing green apples, unripe pears, gorgeous purity and discreet wood, spice, so nuanced, insane inner mouth aromas. So elegant. So pure. So clean. Stunningly detailed and so concentrated and super pure. So so so elegant. Structured and deep. Amazing depth and intense minerality. Elegant and so so deep. Elite spice. Long finish. So so good and has many years ahead of it but today it is crazy. Best bottle of this yet.

After 8-9 hours open this is crazy. Gorgeous melon, honeydew now, spearmint, almost bottarga, just so detailed and complex. A kelp/seaweed thing as well. Just so distinct. Dazzlingly pure and elegant with tactile sweetness. So long and lithe. Hugely almost overwhelming mineral finish.

Les Chétillons Cuvée Spéciale Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2007

Not as good as my last bottle. On the nose: nice toast, mineral and lemon oil with a honeyed character; good persistence, but slightly less intense than I like. On the palate, lovely acidity, lemon oil, steely mineral notes..still very focused. Good, but not where I expect this bottling to be. — 11 days ago

Rosé de Pinot Noir 2018

Light rose pink color in the glass with a truly magnificent nose of fresh fruit and floral accents. Just by smelling this you know it’s more than a cut above. Tons of strawberries, nectarines, apricots. A hint of vanilla and cream.

When it comes to rosé there’s just so much crap flooding the market nowadays. All are similarly priced, with the resquisite pretty label and pretty bottle. They all taste just alike too. This has depth and personality to spare. You wouldn’t call this a porch pounder, you would say it’s elegant. Definitely not a fruit bomb. Rather, it’s clean and dry.

On the palate, it’s surprisingly fresh and lively. Peaches and cream, orange zest, and melon. More red fruits and crisp acidity. Really, really nice stuff. Reaffirms my faith. It’s no surprise that PYCM makes what is probably the best rosé around, is it?
