Château de Pommard

Cuvée Jean-Louis Laplanche Pommard Pinot Noir 1990

Color : Red
Wine estate : Jean-Luc Laplanche
Designation : Pommard
Name : Château Pommard
Country : France
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : This 90 has gone through the years with great promise, giving those who will share this tasting a memorable memory. With a copper color, a nose of tobacco, flowers with a peppery touch, the appetizer is superb. Beautiful aromas, a ripe compote flavor, a lingering length. A delightful nectar for everyone. But beware of its conservation in the cellar, I already had very bad surprises unfortunately.
Ce 90 a traversé les années avec une grande promesse, donner à ceux qui vont partager cette dégustation un souvenir mémorable. Avec une robe cuivrée, un nez de tabac, de fleurs avec une touche poivrée, la mise en bouche est superbe. De beaux arômes, une saveur de compote à maturité, une longueur persistante. Un délicieux nectars ravissant pour tous. Mais attention à sa conservation en cave, j’ai déjà eu de très mauvaises surprises malheureusement.

Estate Edna Valley Pinot Noir 2015

The medium-dark wine has a concentrated nose of cranberry, cola and black tea. A note of tar also pokes its head into the scene. The palate is lovely, a bit on the weighty side as California Pinot is wont to be, but dark, delicious and a dandy match for a grilled pork chop or lamb. The expected cranberry flavor is riper, more like cherry, and the full mouthfeel is satisfying. Its acidity is perfectly refreshing while the tannins are purposeful yet manageable. — 2 days ago

Ygnacia Los Carneros Pinot Noir 2014

14’ HDV YGNACIA Pinot Noir. Decant for 30 + . Complexity on this wine is amazing. Classic - Blackberries, black cherry. Crushed raspberries throughout the palate. The back of the palate finished with a 💥 vanilla spice, touch of cherry. It lingers around for a good 45+ seconds. Not heavy, yet bold & intense. Quite expressive! Edit - Hour in the decanter & the front of the palate has opened up . Personally I would drink them up in the next 3/4 years. — a day ago

Albert Morot

Beaune Teurons 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Saturday night and I have opened the 2015 Albert Morot Beaune Teurons Premier Cru Pinot Noir.

On the nose there is abundant red fruit of being cherries, raspberry, strawberry, roasted coconut, rhubarb, vanilla, mint and earth notes.

Upon first sip on the palate there is a tartness but that may be its youthfulness and will wear with age, cherry, raspberry, ripe tomato, truffle, rosemary, beets, green tea, black olive and an earth component.

This wine is medium bodied with medium acidity and mouth coating medium + sandy tannins that leads to a long fresh finish. A nice burgandy that won't break the bank. Enjoy your weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Wind Gap Wines

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2014

One of the most beautiful (in appearance, as well as palate) Pinot Noir I have had from California in quite a while. I should have included a picture of the color in the glass because it was mesmerizing - the clarity and perfect autumn hue of Burgundy. The aromatics were delicate but defined - damp earth tones, raspberry, clove, and sandalwood. Perfect tension between fruit and acidity with velvet texture. This wine is made with traditional wine making techniques, natural yeasts, and stem inclusion, bottled at 12.5 ABV. — 2 days ago

Yes, Pinots are my fave, and likely I wouldn't have encountered this (except for @Matt Trader, TWP ). For me, more curious than knowledgeable, Wind Gap is like 'harvest time in autumn, back on the farm.' Like mature stalks, drying; and the soil still cool and moist, there's a special scent that tells you it's ready. I enjoyed less acidity, plum-like flavor, with damp-hay scent (or, maybe my imagination?); and a pretty color like red-purplish mums in the fall.

Evening Land Vineyards

Seven Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

It is Friday night and I have opened the 2015 Evening Land Seven Springs Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir.

On the nose there is beautiful red fruit cherry, cranberry, raspberry, ripe tomato, sassafras, cinnamon, mint and a bit of funk

On the palate the red fruit continues through with cherry, raspberry, cranberry, red currant, spice, minerality and earth notes.

This wine is medium to full body with medium acidity and medium fine tannins that lead to a medium to long clean finish. We start another weekend with fun and family so please be safe and enjoy yourselves. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

St Innocent Winery

Villages Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

We serendipitously happened upon a 2015 St Innocent Pinot Noir at the Whole Foods in Hillsboro and although a little pricey at $42 - this has been on my must have list. It didn’t disappoint. It has a nose with fresh red cherries, ground baking spices, menthol, and a hint of anise. It’s layered in the mouth with bright red cherries, wild blackberries, subtle spices, and floral notes. We decanted for an hour while relaxing in the McMenamin’s hot pool before enjoying the wine in the garden with some roasted chicken and grilled veg (also from Whole Foods!) A very good night with a very good wine! — 2 days ago

Reserve Rogue Valley Pinot Noir 2015

This is a Wagner family project now owned and run by Joe Wagner, met Joe recently and tasted a bunch of his outstanding wines. Fruit for this wine came from Willamette, Umpqua and Rogue Valleys, which harmonize beautifully when blended together. Ruby with youthful fruit and waft of pepper spice aromas. Fresh sweet cherry and jammy raspberry fruit with adding earthy cacao packed in lively acidity. Lingering finish, soft tannins with good mouthfeel, ending with mineral freshness. Tasting Sample. — 3 days ago

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir

Wonderful evening at the City Club courtesy of Jeff’s hosting at the Friday group. Cellar guessing Jeff is a dangerous game as he’s the type who plans to throw curveballs! All wines served blind.

Zero guesses of Pinot around the table. Most (like myself) guessed late 90s Napa Cab. Red and black fruit was powerful up front but subdued on the mid palate. Gained some darker fruit/black cherry and was more fruit forward than the La Conseillante.

Jessie Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2013

The twiggiest of the twig and branches that make up the nose of a classic Pinot noir. This is room filling.
Cranberry, raspberry mushroom (hen of the woods and enoki), mouth watering afterthoughts of these fruits turn into a tannic interlude, within the light to medium body - an embrace of the tea tannins that linger on..

A great Pinot Noir. Thank you Cris and Tom.
