Domaine Robert Chevillon

Les Perrières Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

The solar vintage of 2009 was a great match for Chevillon as it adds more rich fruit expression and freshness to balance the (integrated) gamey elements and rusticity Chevillon can often display. There is excellent concentration, balance and intensity. Cassis, black cherries, sous bois, smoke and minerals. Saturating texture and depth on the midpalate before a long and harmonious finish. Wonderful. — 4 months ago

Moussé Fils

'Special Club' Les Fortes de Terres Brut 2015

🏅Rating 92+/100 (4,25⭐)

Cédric Moussé is the fourth generation of his family to make champagne at Moussé Fils. He is young, energetic and innovative.

In 2012, Mousse completed construction of a new winery in Cuisles, designed to be as environmentally sustainable as possible. It is state of the tech art.

In 2005, Moussé joined the Club Trésors de Champagne, and began making a Spécial Club champagne in that vintage. It's the first 100-percent meunier champagne in the history of the Club.

Single vineyard Meunier comes from 4 plots in lieu-dit “Les Fortes Terres”.

Pale pink gold colour. Crushed almonds, raspberry and strawberry with splash of milk (full malo). Reductive winemaking puts emphasis on the purity of the fruit! 1g/l dosage is enough to balance. Broad-shouldered on the palate. Dry long finish. Spent over 3 years sur lee and disg. 10/2019

Solar 2015 vintage speaks from the glass. Overall that was a warm year which started with a mild and humid winter, followed by quite a dry spring and summer. Harvest started on the 9th of September.

This is one of Champagne's finest examples of pure meunier!

Binyamina & Kadita Cabernet Franc Blend 2016

Solar oaky Cabernet-franc from 🇮🇱 which is expressed here on notes of very ripe fruit. The mouth is fresh with a well-maited alcohol. Balanced, with ageing marked by vanilla. The finish is tannic and persistent. It invokes Bordeaux and southwest. Gastronomic.

Version solaire, fût-de-chêne du Cabernet-franc, 🇮🇱 qui s’exprime ici sur des notes de fruits très mûrs. La bouche est fraîche avec un alcool bien maitrisée. Équilibré, avec un élevage marqué par la vanille. La finale est tannique et rémanente. Ça invoque le bordelais et le sud-ouest. Vin de gastronomie.

Domaine Billaud-Simon

Tête d'Or Chablis Chardonnay 2016

🏅 Rating 89/100 (3,9⭐)

Ripe and solar, floral with orchard fruits. Full malo milky aroma. Slight presence of oak. Lovely acidity, minerality. Citrus finish.
Would be great if it had just a bit more concentration on mid palate and longer finish. But wait, that would have been 1er Cru )) Actually this cuvee is a blend of the best sites owned by Domaine in Chablis appellation, many of which just next to 1er Crus.

Jean-Luc Jamet

Terrasses Côte-Rotie Syrah 2017

Warming and rich with its smokey ripe fruit. There’s a sun-kissed element there. The tannins are marked by this solar vintage too, with a lower acidity accompanying that. Wholesome, full, with some burliness in its oak and tannin but nothing that isn’t absolutely delightful. It’s built around the iron and smoke content now, with warm black cherry compote, leather, ash, violet/lavender, truffle, and pepper adding support. The allure of spices and whole cluster layers are in sync with the rest of the wine. Despite the impacts from heat/drought, I still find that “Burgundian” sensibility that makes the brothers Jamet wines so delicious and intricate. With aeration its structural balance and powdery tannic length began to take on a more noble form. — 4 months ago

Domaine Sylvain Pataille

Bourgogne Aligoté 2018

🏅 Rating 90/100 (4,0⭐)

Candyfloss, white flowers. Oak is present, but in the most pleasant way. Sylvain is not afraid of new oak barrels (pieces). Aligote made in classic Burgundian Chardonnay style. Only light green hint suggests it's Aligote. Warm, ripe and solar. Soft creamy texture, medium to light body. Surprisingly long length.

Made according to organic and biodynamic principles.

I'm a big fan of Sylvain Pataille wines. I might not be objective here, but this is among the best expressions of Aligote in Burgundy.
