Beaune-Perrières 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Had another bottle in my cellar, had this about 2 years ago. Louis Latour's domaine covers 50 hectares including the largest collection of Grand Cru vineyards in Burgundy. Aged for 12 months in French Oak (35% new), bright Ruby with complex red fruit aromas and spicy oak. On the palate blackberry and currants flavors with cacao and oak notes, fine soft tannins, lively acidity, well balance. Lingering finish ending with earthy mineral tones. Aging well! — 7 days ago

Clos De La Féguine Beaune Monopole 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

A bit tannic on the whole which seemed to mask some of the fruit. May have done it good to cellar a bit longer. — 5 days ago

Les Narbantons Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Lyle Fass

Brilliant nose. Girard did very well in 2015. Sunshine, late season cherry, mineral, earthy, gamey and meaty. Complex and finesse driven with sappy fruit, a nice hit of opulence. Clean and balanced and very pure. So silky. Great upon pop and pour but air really sends into overdrive. — 15 days ago

Wednesday Wine Committee hosted by Dan. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. Tasted blind as usual.

Nobody guessed this as burgundy. Most guessed CdP. Tons of black pepper and tart/older red fruit. Herbal and savory. Hardly any acidity. Surprised at this.

@Shay A Based on your description sounds like a victim of the vintage.

Les Peuillets Savigny Les Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Light ruby red , moving to a wide garnet rim . Lots of red fruits on the nose , nice elegant , feminine , floral also . In the mouth , more strawberry , red cherry and raspberry fruits , a good dash of acidity keeps the wine in balance . The tannin is pretty ripe and already integrated. Very good length, nicely judged. A rewarding wine for drinking now and over the next 3 years or so. — 14 days ago

Domaine Tollot-Beaut

Beaune Grèves 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Regal, powerful, polished beneath a rustic veneer. Reductive out of the gate, the next day revealing complex and subtle layers of sappy fruit and resinous herbs. Raspberry, Kirsch, licorice, cedar and smoke flavors pushed forward. The mid palate is lithe and graceful, finishing with a silken texture that shows deft restraint in a rather generous vintage. The power and richness of 2015 makes an overall impression but is not the dominant feature. And despite the imprint of slightly charred new oak flavors, the acidity and freshness of this 1er cru lift things up and prevent it from feeling weighty. Truly a tremendous Burgundy.

drinks well now and very nice. Was afraid the blend of sites would blur the terroir but it’s very focused Beaune. — 10 days ago
