Pinot Noir

Au Pied du Mont Chauve

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Pale golden straw. Immediate whiff of gunpowder wafts past lemon zest and warm juice undercoats; lemon verbena, living sage, chive, and colored pencil. Palatal silk evaporates to spongey pith of lime in a magically, porously, dry transformation shimmering with crystalline suggestions and smoky allusions.long and heartfelt reverberations beyond its last drops.

Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier

Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Gorgeous floral bouquet features red roses, lilac, lavender and cherry blossoms above ripe red and black cherry, ripe raspberry, grilled watermelon and morels. Tart cherry palate dials into the silky groove suddenly, hinting at rose water, but resembling raspberries in a forest rain. Lightest cinnamon bark adds warmth, violet and hibiscus bites emerge, and the whole flaunts a long and sensuous length of shimmer that mystifies.

Robert Sinskey Vineyards

Los Carneros Pinot Noir 2016

Small production. RSV has under 200 acres of vineyards in 5 Carneros locations & a winery in the Stags Leap District. The wines are 100% organic. Ruby with berry, cherry & spice aromas. On the palate flavors of wild strawberry & cherry with complex spice, citrus, oak and balanced acidity. Fine soft tannins, good balance, long finish with an earthy characteristic ending with notes of vanilla spice. Nice! — 3 days ago

Kuheiji

Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2018

Finally tried Kuheiji’s Burgundy project (NB: their efforts in France yielded one of my most memorable sakés in 2019 - the Camargue; notes on Delectable). This was quite the changeling - started off reductive with a red-fruited palate, light airy touch, juicy acidity, and no noticeable oak. Combined with the hint of fruit sweetness in the back end, I just shot straight for Beaujolais in my blinded guess. Should have waited as my mistake became quite apparent over dinner. With air, the wine took on a darker/black fruit profile and showed obvious signs of oak treatment, though well-integrated. It was all blackcurrants, plums, raspberries, cinnamon, dark chocolate, cedar, and a hint of earthiness/minerality (appellation?). The palate remained airy and juicy, with that fruit sweetness in the finish perhaps indicative of the warm vintage. I enjoyed this as it had energy, though DC found the wine a little too oaky for his liking and KK noted some bottle variation with this being a weaker pull. — 12 days ago

Domaine Fourrier

Vieille Vigne Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2016

DAY1
Served with the Vinloq System
👃Lovely perfumed fruit. High toned. Sweet with a candied edge. Cherry liquer and mint
👅More restrained than the nose. Fruit is also darker. Somewhat closed and not giving up too much. Med acidity. Tannins have astringency

Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator

DAY11
👃Very floral and sweet red fruits. Blood orange, medicinal herbs and mint
👅Floral and sweet,mostly red fruit. Wood/hay and earth. Mild tannins

Slow Decanting helped this improve some on DAY11 but this still needs a few years of bottle ago to reveal itself and improve its precision, which I expect it to do 🍷

@Pinotman /// Andreas This is a wine I buy in most vintages because I really like it. The 2016 just needs a little time to come together. Slow Decanting will often allow wines to slowly open up and that hapened some, but this just needs a couple more years to excel 🍷

Louis Latour

Aloxe-Corton Grand Cru Domaine Latour Pinot Noir 2008

Had this at a tasting and bought several bottles, aged well, just opened last one. Aged for about 12 months in French oak barrels (15% new). Ruby, brown edges, with aromas of red and black stewed fruits and complex spice. On the palate, flavors of layered fruit, ripe black cherry and raspberry with cedar, tobacco, herbs and nutty notes. Full soft tannins, balanced acidity, long ending with fruit and earthy character. Outstanding! Worth the wait! — 4 days ago

Les Sentiers Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Un nez de fruits rouges, vendanges entières aussi. Une bouche avec une belle acidité et un fruité un peu acidulé, frais et fin, bonne longueur, très bien, représentatif du millésime vs le cru selon moi. 91-92

Red fruit, whole clusters clearly with a palate that is fresh, nice fruit, good acidity, tangy red fruit with this nice finish, a wine that represents more 2013 then anything else in my opinion.

Been a while and wow has this changed. Unreal nose of woodsmoke, cherry flower, mid to early season cherries. Some bittersweet cocoa and also wonderful earthiness. Just beautiful. Awesome florality. Palate is so silky and seductive. Sweet sweet fruit and so juicy. Man this just glides on your palate. Salty and mineral finish and such energy. Wow the length here is crazy. Stunning. Wow this is ethereal. This was always great but now it is profound. Concentrated and so refined. Amazing finish and such ripe and elegant tannins. Masterful. — a day ago

Femme Fatale Christie Vineyard Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

Empty bottle shot? Yes, it was that good.

It’s too bad you can’t see the lovely transparent, but electric Fuschia color. Lots of time in contact with the skins — 12 hour maceration and lovingly foot tread prior to press, so drinks more like a light red than a white. There’s real Pinot fruit and Santa Cruz mountain character here: strawberries, rose hips, stones, fresh herbs, cool breezes blowing through the redwoods. Many layers. Rosé of the summer.
