Les Duresses Monthélie 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

The 2015 Monthélie 'Les Duresses' is a simply sensational wine from this legendary producer. Elegant and refined, this stunning red instantly begins to captivate with is gorgeous aromatics of wild raspberries and cherries, which are laced with fresh florals and smoky nuances that all come together beautifully. It goes on to further impress with its remarkable freshness and purity, as well as striking overall balance, as it seamlessly glides across the palate and gracefully comes to an end with a beautiful silky finish. Readers looking for a high-quality Burgundy to consume early should highly consider this brilliant Monthélie from Dominique Lafon, as it is utterly striking today, but should also drink exceptionally well over the course of the next decade. — 4 days ago

Santenots Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Well golly, this is stunning. It needs air as it is Santenots which always needs air. It’s so elegant and precise. The aromas are so detailed and subtle. Floral, red cherries, spices, loads of mineral, lovely hit of earth on the back end. Gorgeous. Will open I’m sure as it gets even more air. Really floral after 20 minutes. Dizzying. Palate is supremely elegant and so precise with gorgeous, refined and detailed tannins that are barely sweet and so earthy. Really high quality tannins and a huge kick of red cherry fruit on the finish. There is serious volume and amplitude here and it has the Brisset touch. It has outrageous length and just a stunning, sexy mouthfeel. Wow. This is incredible. Incredible minerality on the finish. So refined. It has such subtle opulence. This will be better in 5 years but is not inaccessible now. — 8 days ago

Clos des Mouches Beaune 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Lyle Fass
9.5

After 6 years this is starting to really strut its stuff and live up the exalted status of this great 1er Cru. Nose of lemon zest, lemon curd, mineral, kiss of oak, a little muted for now as a bit cold but palate is unreal. Huge density and richness with terrific acidity and freshness. Massively mineral finish with serious structure and concentration. Finish is compact and comes across as massive yet closed. Very pure and just superb quality. Very complex finish and really all the way through.Stunning showing. Great terroir. Wish i would have waited longer and i rarely say that. — 5 days ago

Pommard Les Epenots Pinot Noir 1964

Came across this ‘64 Pommard Les Epenots bottled for André Simon in my cellar the other day. It was looking rather forlorn, with a sunken cork, so I decided to open it. I was expecting it to be good, given the quality of the vineyard and vintage, but this delivered far beyond anything I had dared to imagine. One of the best bottles of Burgundy I have had this year. Full of red fruits, with a hint of sous-bois, great acidity, persistence, and balance. Very long. I wonder who made it - the cork is branded with the name of the vineyard but no indication of producer:-&
