Insane nose. Just absurd. The most complex expression ever. Wet earth, lime zest, lime rock candy, pulverized rock dust. Smokey minerals abound. Wood shavings. Not from oak. Like woodshop wood shavings. Impossible mineral complexity on the nose. Wow. Power, depth. So deep. I mean deep ocean where all the strangest sea creatures live. Amazing. So balanced. So elegant. So clean. Huge core of mineral, lime rock candy, sick dry extract. Dazzlingly pure. So focused. So Iong and a mineral rock candy lime zest sweetness and also liquid pulverized rock dust. This is something else. Stunning inner mouth aromas. Huge, crushing acids, like waves on jagged rocks. The jagged rocks in this case being my teeth. This is an incredible wine. Might be a 9.7. — 20 hours ago

Les Perrières Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2004

Decanted for 2 hours. Yellow gold color. Great creamy fruity nose. Notes of ripe citrus fruit, vanilla, almond paste, river stones and tan spice. Great balance of fruit, acidity and structure in the mouth. Loved the smells of this wine, even the glass after this wine was long gone. Great stuff, has everything you want in a reasonably aged white burg. — 2 days ago

The final white of JJ Morel I will ever taste. First one that is not with him thanks to Covid-19. It’s bittersweet. Just an amazing nose. So bright. So high toned. Citrus jelly. Smoke. Hickory. Hazelnuts. Saline. Inside of a fancy chocolate found in some exotic assortment box. The one you have to ask “what’s in this?” Palate is electricity. Impossibly complex. Stunning deep and very expressive minerality. Perfect supernal balance. Big attack. Long and gentle finish. Amazing mid palate. Finish is super zesty. Pure and layered. The sum of the parts in full effect here. A wine of indescribable genius. A swan song like no other. — 20 hours ago

Domaine Ramonet

Bienvenue Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1990

The third in a string of white burgs all acquired from the Don Stott Sotheby auctions. This was notably darker than the previous two bottles. Some oxidation on the nose, with notes of candied lemon, brown sugar and some iodine. With air, there's some desirable citrus and leesy notes that come on. And while the oxidative note in the nose is noticeable, when you taste the wine you are hit with a ton of acidity that says this bottle is in no way over the hill. In fact as the wine took on more air, the nose took on typical old Ramonet notes including the mint and wet stones attributes. The acidity and power lasted for about an hour and then some decline happened. Pretty damn good juice and on other nights this probably would have been the favorite white.

Bottle swap night. Nice #whiteburg featuring green apple, pineapple scents. Mid-palate highlights include quince paste, lemon and butter. Lighter in weight and a racier style of PM with firm acidity on the finish — 17 hours ago
