Les Sarres Côtes du Jura Savagnin 2019

Absolutely gorgeous Savignin with layers of complexity that continue to open up with each sip. Has an oxidized quality that really adds extra elements to each flavor. White flowers and peachy aromatics lead to a soft creaminess with honeyed apples and pears which counteracts a bright acidic structure and strong mineral tendency. Ends with a lightly toasted nuttiness. Really hit the spot. — 4 months ago


En Faux St. Véran Chardonnay


Smooth, not fruity, not acidic, and a taste of oak that you can’t but like, great wine — a year ago


Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay 2016

Beautifully balanced fruit, acidity and (subtle) oak. Melon, peach pineapple and citrus flavours, good length and a soft finish. A style that a few new world producers could learn from. Will buy this again. — 3 years ago

- 100% Chardonnay aged on Lee’s, that gives it a creamy taste, great texture and buttery, toasty notes, citrus and great minerality

Coteaux Bourguignons 'Correaux' Vieilles Vignes 2019

A juicy gamay slightly acid, that pinote.. trend black cherries, violets, rose, pepper, and soft spices, a little like a Brouilly. Very well vinified. Nice price/pleasure ratio..

"La Rouge" Poulsard Arbois 2018

Now we’re talkin— must have had at least 3 or 4 bottles prior to this, & they were all mute. Completely expressive now. Light sunshine vermillion color in glass. Wild red raspberries, fine tannins, medium, soft acidity. Floral & those fruits on nose. From a producer I hold complete faith in, happy the reward came ( his Chardonnay is my catnip). I did not decant. The question remains: were they bad bottles or just in a ‘dumb’ phase? — 3 years ago

Correaux Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Pinot-Noir (66%) and gamay (34%) blend, both gourmet and sophisticated. The nose, marked by aging, evokes Burgundy by its toasted-cherry-vertical side, while the gamay would recall Beaujolais on strawberry-vegetable, jovial, floral and peppery notes. It's accessible, crunchy, with chew (not or little filtered) it pinote on a wide arotic range. The approach of a real friendly wine, with a solid final.

Assemblage Pinot-Noir (66%) et gamay (34%) à la fois gourmand et sophistiqué. Le nez, marqué par l’élevage évoque la Bourgogne par son côté toasté-cerise-vertical, alors que le gamay rappellerait le Beaujolais sur des notes fraises-végétal, jovial, floral et poivré. C’est accessible, croquant, avec de la mache (pas ou peu filtré) ça pinote sur une gamme arotique étendue. L’abord d’un vrai vin de copain, avec une finale plus que sérieuse.
