Domaine Chavy-Chouet

Les Chanlins 1er Cru Pommard Pinot Noir 2015

9.4

This is low key one of the most incredible wines from Chavy-Chouet. Classic Pommard nose. Stones, underbrush and refined yet brambly red fruits. A lot more is buried under there. Spice and smoke and clearly defined minerals after some air. Really a wow nose. Incredible purity and balance with sour cherry and sweet cherry fruit of the mid season kind. Very pure. Delicious. Great freshness and balance as well. Elegant and pure. Long. Gorgeous tannins. Substantial yet pure. Such energy and precision. Elegant and powerful. The most “Barolo” of all the Burgundy villages. Great stuff . — 7 days ago

Insanely good. Modern and clean with some ripe aromas and flavors. Super Burgundian on the palate. Shows how charming volnay CAN be. Dusty fruit on the nose with black tea and a little eucalyptus. Long long wine that should have the legs to go for years and years to come — a day ago

Young but very enjoyable and shows great promise to improve over the next several years if not longer
Black cherry, tobacco, and mushrooms.
Highly recommend especially at the $39 price point.

Domaine Billard-Gonnet

Chaponnières Pommard 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes Pinot Noir 2008

This is such old school Burgundy. Nose is so fragrant with gravel, mahogany, dark cherry, spice. Concentrated yet lithe in the mouth. Zinging acids. Resolved tannins. Great length and cling. Wow. — 11 days ago

Les Charmots Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1964

My sister, mom and I enjoying one of the last remnants of my dad’s wine collection. He passed 15 years ago, but this vintage Burgundy from the year my parents were married was special. The wine had a unique, aged taste that is not for everyone. It was very sherry-like. Otherwise, there were Raisins, leather, and plums on the palate. Sweet plums and tobacco on the nose. An enjoyable experience! — 25 days ago

Domaine Henri Boillot

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

9.0

So, Henri Boillot is one of my go to Burgundy producers...largely for his quality in craft but, his QPR as well.

Normally, I wouldn’t open even one of his Village Bourgogne whites this early (I would wait 2-3 more years) but, 2018 is a good to very good not outstanding vintage & this was only $25 ish. Inexpensive for a decent Burgundy these days. So, I bought several.

The nose reveals; waxy, sweet & sour lemons, the light, good/softer aspects of lemon pledge, lime zest, green & golden apple, overripe pineapple, honeysuckle, apricots, white peach, orange rind, grapefruit w/ pith, tree bark, flintiness, notes of roasted caramel, vanillin, beautifully, elegant, grey volcanics, salty, powdery, even slightly floral chalkiness, white to lightly brown spices, sea spray, oyster notes, limestone/sandstone, fruit blossoms, yellow lilies framed in a field of spring flowers.

The body is thick, rich, lush and nicely rounded. If you like viscosity, no issues here. It guides over the palate presenting no mouth arguments. Waxy, sweet & sour lemons, the light, good/softer notes of lemon pledge, green & some golden apple with skin, lime zest, overripe pineapple, honeysuckle, apricots, white peach, orange rind, tropicals green melon, tree bark, notes of roasted caramel, beautifully, elegant, grey volcanics, salty, powdery, even slightly floral chalkiness, white to lightly brown spices with some medium palate heat, sea spray, oyster notes, sulfur/flintiness, limestone/sandstone, fruit blossoms, yellow lilies framed in a field of spring flowers. The acidity is near dead on...like a gentle cool stream. The long finish is, gorgeous & sexy, elegant, rich, good balance all around and persists gently for minutes.

Just gets better & better as it warms & opens up in the glass. This Bourgogne will add another point or two when I open my next bottle in 2-3 years.

Excellent with our soft, white cheese...Jasper Hill Farms-Willoughby. If you can find this cheese, gets one of my highest recommendations. Bought it at Whole Foods but, you can always check JasperHillFarms.com if N/A where you shop.
