Pommard, Côte De Beaune

Château de Pommard

Clos Marey-Monge Pinot Noir 2016

Medium Ruby with complex aromas of ripe red fruits, baking spice and cedar notes. On the palate layered flavors of ripe cherry, strawberry and blackerry with notes of cacao, vanilla, spice and oak. Fine rustic tannins, still tight, long savory finish, ending with fruit, sweet spice and slight earthy mineral notes. Very nice! — 3 days ago

Les Cents Vignes Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2019

First time we tried it, and its to our taste. Medium dark rubi robe, beautiful nose of spices and cherries, medium bodied, elegant, complex. Really good stuff and left us thirsty at the end. — 20 days ago

Les Lavières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

9.3

Have not had since 2019. Nose is brambly with a cherry melange. Very earthy. Some wood shavings. A bit aromatically closed for now. Palate is juicy, very concentrated and sappy with great purity. Really long but also seems backwards. But terrific fruit and intensity. Very very sappy. Needs a few more years but you can the low yields of 16 gave this wine density and tons of material.

After an hour this has softened up and is super juicy and the tannins have calmed down. 9.2 to 9.3. Lavieres is such good terroir.

Pommard Pinot Noir 2013

So light that when it was poured I exclaimed it looked more like an ‘03 and not ‘13. But the color of the edges were not brown or rust. It’s tannins have not really dropped but was just made abnormally light. Drink now. — 11 days ago

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2019

2019; Decanted 2H.

Nose has dried pineapple, wet plywood, dried lemon zest, dehydrated mango, vanilla and peach cobbler.

Palate has pineapple core, ripe yellow apple, clementine zest, mango with a nice bite of acidity.

So youthful! We're really looking ahead to how these develop over the next 6-8+ years, as that seems to be the sweet spot on this particular site. (Heck, the 2013's are still drinking amazing.)

24H Update:
Nose has overflowing pineapple & vanilla and crushed lemon peel.
Palate has warmed vanilla ice cream, mashed ripe pineapple with faded acidity. The vanilla notes are very present today.

A wonderful bouquet complements a rich and robust dark fruit pommard. Wine consumed in Beaune with a fish, bœuf, and cheese courses. A rich wine while still a friend of the food. — 3 days ago

Les Épenots Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

9.2

This was the first bottle of burgundy I bought just under five years ago. Didn’t know much about the producer, vintage, region or vineyard, I just knew it was time to start adding a few to check on in later years. Glad I did!

Alongside this was a 2002 Piper Rare, 2008 SQN The Duel Grenache and a 1989 Beychevelle, paired with Braised Texas Iberico Ossobuco…and shockingly, all worked with the dish.

While we decanted the other reds, we pulled the cork and let this sit in the bottle for 30mins or so before pouring. Dark crimson in the glass with some translucence. Aromatics of cedar, herb crusted black cherries, raspberries and dark floral notes…not shy. The first half of the bottle showed a very pretty/elegant profile with nervy acidity, and then this absolutely transformed to a more complex and filled-out wine…black peppercorn, clay/earth with some iron at the finish that persisted for a good while.

Drinking really well now, and likely reaching peak enjoyment for those who enjoy their burgs with a balanced fruit and secondary profile.

La Chatenière Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Nose has cooled lemon curd, light apple cider vinegar, cold pineapple, moist moss, oxidized green apple slice, damp clove and very wet grassy notes.

Palate has pineapple core, bruised green pears, faint lanolin, light honey notes, light under-ripe yellow peach and white waxy notes round out the finish.

Double decant with 12H rest. A Saint Aubin for the trending natural wine crowd without being over the top 'natural'. 92-93 Points.

Paired to a grilled slab of Steelhead Trout, perfection.

24H Update:
Nose has fresh green apple peel, warmed yellow apple slice and white waxy notes.
Palate has warm pear, slight honey and under-ripe pineapple.
Much improved; Score change 92>93.
