Santenay, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils

Les Epenottes Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

My first exposure to any of Louis Boillot’s wines was his Pommard at Pierre Gagnaire in Paris, and I have been on the hunt for his wines ever since. This Beaune is extremely floral, full of bright red fruit and has a slight smokiness to it. Reasonably priced for a 1er Cru Burgundy and drinking so well for its age. — 2 days ago

Vincent Girardin

Les Vieilles Vignes Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2015

Vincent Girardin continues the winemaking tradition of his father and grandfather before him, and expanded the appellations in his domaine either through inheritance, purchase, or a system of leasing called "fermage." Aromas of stone and citrus fruits. The palate shows lemons with crisp apple, mineral & oak notes. This medium-body wine has good balance with integrated acidity, lingering, finishing smooth with a citrus mineral ending. Very Nice! — 3 days ago

Château de la Charrière

La Maladière Santenay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Hay, cherry, crushed rock, leather, vanilla. Quite a nice typical, barrel aging showing, burgundy nose. The palate is very well balanced : strong acid backbone and delicate cherry notes with some grip on the sides. A silky layer all around that makes it very delicate and approachable, some tannins that kick things up a bit and a finish with cherry and almost raspberry with a pinch of vanilla and some oak. Nice finish that lasts for a while. Very delicate and tangy. Good wine. — a month ago

Cuvée Brunet Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1971

WOTN. Such a great year in Beaune - predominantly floral nose with raspberries and a hint of candied beetroot; delicate but strong with a stoical tannic grip, and spritely acidity:-)‬ — 14 days ago

Lovely wine. Ripe 2015 nose, but mineral and stunningly fresh. Palate has terrific energy and richness while also being compact and balanced. Very pure and lovely to drink now. Pop and pour. Gorgeous purity. Terrific length and mineral dynamism on the finish. — 8 hours ago

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Meursault-Genevrières 1er Cru Chardonnay 2008

Pale Gold in colour and crystal clear. Nuances of honey florals mineral and herbal characters. With time notes of sliced pear. Plenty happening on the palate which initially was delicate and refined but developed more weight with aeration. A fascinating journey for this gorgeous mature Genevrieres and a good showing for a lesser vintage. Drink now. One of the 1001 Wines. — 5 days ago

9.3

Gorgeous wine. Gained even more weight in a year since last having it. Complex nose of butter, mineral, grilled apples, iodine and so much depth and breadth. Palate has such wonderful finesse and freshness from the intense minerality. Juicy. Complex and compact. Drinking great now and shows the classic profile of a great 15. — 6 days ago
