Nice burgundy. A bit ripe / young / slightly disjointed even but lots of dark cherry and a pleasing finish. — 23 days ago

La Comme Santenay 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Subtle citrus, oily mouthfeel, white flower, almond paste, dusty citrus zest. Layered and enjoyable. — 15 days ago

Domaine Roulot

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. — 3 days ago

I don’t think his Charmes is his best

Domaine Jacques Prieur

Champs-Pimont Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

! !Yarivyo Wine Score!

My last bottle and a pleasure! White burgundy as it should be and in a reasonable price. This beautiful Beaune is at its peak with a lovely gold color, on the nose notes of cream, oak, citrus, hint of tropical fruit and mineral, a round medium smooth body with pleasant acidity and a delicious finish. My score 89, drink up — 9 days ago

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. — 8 days ago

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

Probably would have been better with a decant of at least a couple of hours. This wine has a hint of honeyed almond and cashew on the nose. Also has a little bit of herbal quality. The entry of this wine is actually pretty round on the front. Buttercream. The middle is where this wine gains acidity and a dried herb and limestone, crushed rock character. Finishes with more acidity. This wine definitely had much more going on when it was closer to room temperature. Served at a restaurant, they tried like hell to keep it as cold as possible despite my attempts of taking the bottle out of the bucket... it always found its way back in... I sense there is quite a bit of improvement in the next 3 or 4 years. If I had to do it all over again though, I would probably leave this one alone, especially at the price. — 11 days ago

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Volnay Santenots Pinot Noir 2017

Lovely young Burgundy from a favorite producer. This is more structured than the Meo Fixin 1er Cru we tried, and is less voluptuous at first, but time will really help this wine... after just one hour, this Volnay opened up with bright cherry and tea leaf notes. Plenty of acidity makes this a great food wine. Clean & pure with a laser focus, as with many Meo-Camuzet offerings. Delicious. — 9 days ago

Domaine Michel Mallard

Les Valozières Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Plenty of cherries 🍒 notes so fresh and bright. Still very good the next day chalky. Beautiful Burgundy but at 100$? And in October 25% tariffs on top. I think for us mortals it will be soon game over for wines from this region. Even Bourgogne’s go now for 30-40$. In the future I will focus on wines which emulate Burgs but are still affordable. — a day ago
