Premier Cru Burgundy

Domaine Pinson Frères

Mont de Milieu Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has seashells, sea spray, fresh strawberries, cold butter or cream, washed lemons, lemon juice and over-ripe green apple.

Palate has lemon creme, (light) strawberry, lemon zest, mild oak, freshly whipped cream and wet flint.

Nice wine, our first time having this particular 1er Cru vineyard, but...the oak, while it is sort of neutral, it is the underlying impact to the palate. I'm thinking they likely do not use new oak, but 2-4 year old barrels, but just a little much for my palate on a Chablis. I'm really a fan of very neutral oak or all stainless steel treatment.

24 Hour Update: Wood notes are gone, all about (light) lemon curd, limestone paste and cut strawberry today, wonderfulness.

Got to meet the wine maker and her husband at a small dinner. Very much enjoyed both of them and their whole wine line up

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

Found this wine to be steely, chalky with a hint of mint. All comes together very well. Drinks good now. — 4 months ago

Les Brouillards Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Very nice premier cru Volnay with a touch of age - certainly could use more as the tannins are a hair less than silky smooth on the finish. Deep red in the glass with lots of red fruit with some good earth as well. Excellent acid on the persistent finish. — 17 days ago

Beauroy Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay

Flamboyant and punchy—-what’s not to like. First time having this producer. The use of oak was a bit much yet with time that will find its place. — 4 months ago

Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2004

Straw to medium gold color. Nice weight. Notes of apricot, tan spice, kiwi, dusty clay and some wax. At first it’s watery and sweet in the mouth. After 2+ hours of air it firms up to give nice structure and acidity. Slightly missing in the mid palate. Good not great. Continue to be unsure about this wine which I’ve had many times. It’s better today than samples from the past few years. Maybe just more time is needed. — 4 days ago

I don’t think his Charmes is his best

Vincent Girardin

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 1999

Light golden color and some nuttiness and butterscotch show its age and complement a mineral and fresh lemony core. Not as complex as would be ideal, but still very enjoyable unlike some prior bottles that were overly oxidized. — 10 days ago

Échezéaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

This seemed flat & not correct so another btl was opened & although better it had the same profile. Martine acknowledged the 99 Ech always showed this way. This was my least favorite Echezeaux. — 4 days ago
