Premier Cru Burgundy

Domaine François Raveneau

Chablis Premier Cru Foret 2016

The 2016 Domaine Francois Raveneau ‘Foret’ Chablis is a massive wine that is wound up tighter than a top at the present moment. Needing more than an hour decant to slowly evolve aromatically, the wine gradually takes shape in the glass with bright nectarine skin, green apple, clove and wild mushroom tones that complement the beam of salinity. The palate has incredible energy and freshness, showing bright kumquat zest, diatomaceous earth, peat moss with flinty undertones and a sterling minerality. Fantastic and intense in its youth, this really needs another year of bottle age to fully get going. Drink 2020-2035 — 19 days ago

Vincent Dauvissat

"Vaillons" Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

The 2016 Vaillons Chablis is a simply brilliant showing from Dauvissat, who has a reputation for producing some of the finest Chablis in the region and there is no exception in this difficult vintage. As this gorgeous wine slowly unwinds in the glass it releases pretty aromas of orchard and citrus fruits, followed by orange zest, honey blossoms and pulverized stones. It goes on to impress as it displays wonderful overall purity and focus through a beautifully textured palate and remarkably precise finish. Overall this is a marvelous wine that is showing wonderful energy and appeal in its youth, but should also evolve beautifully for years to come. — 12 days ago

Seth Morgen Long

Perhaps the most consistent domaine in Burgundy, this 2013 was firing on all cylinders. That quintessential density and weight with freshness and vibrancy, nothing out of place and everything I could ask for. — 11 days ago

Lyle Fass

So mineral. Seashells, lime zest, lime blossom, iodine, palate is rich and ripe, acid on the finish is just intense. Juicy, so mineral, so long, persistent. — 8 days ago

Domaine Roulot

Bourgogne Aligoté 2015

The 2015 Bourgogne Aligote from Roulot is fantastic. It begins with beautiful aromas of orchard fruits, lemon oil, stoney minerals and hints of dried floral. On the palate this shows wonderful overall balance and vibrancy all the way through the fresh finish. A fabulous wine from one of Burgundy's premier producers and a wonderful expression of the varietal. — 3 days ago

Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1964

Beautiful nose. Soft compressed cherry, faded plum, damson, soft and fleshy nose. This is classic aged burg. Still vital and alive. All the fruit is soft and seductive. Intensity but settled and pretty. Really good stuff. The finish is a bit truncated but this is gorgeous. — 15 days ago

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru 2008

Fairly structured but still light on its feet. Red cherry, fairly primary with a bit of game. Not the most complex. Had I not known what it was, I might have guessed a California Pinot made in a Burgundian style, given the overall sweetness and lack of complexity. Had high hopes for this but was truly unimpressed. Of course I’m probably drinking this a decade before it’s time, but still, a Grand Cru should really jump out at me more. I guess not every Grand Cru can be a revelation. — 6 days ago

Nice I have pictures of that barrel room with only 3-4 barrels in it from when we visited.

Domaine Bernard Defaix

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Pale lemon with medium intensity aromas of stone and citrus fruits with slight biscuit notes. On the palate apple, lemon, lime fruit with notes of wet stone and warm bread. Medium finish ending a bit creamy with mineral notes. Very Good now but can get better over short term bottle age. — 7 days ago
