Les Terres Blanches Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

WNH virtual tasting - great fun!
This presented in a somewhat idiosyncratic way. The nose displayed apples, pears and a touch of caramel. But the palate was like a chameleon - first, you noticed the typical Chardonnay signature, but it also displayed some SB like (sherbet) notes. A rare white from NSG, as this village, for the most part, produces reds. Medium weight and texture, with a balanced acid profile. Finishes with a flinty note. I’m sure that this wine would have baffled most in a blind tasting, including moi.

Charme Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Crémant de Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

I wouldn’t be able to honestly decipher this from good quality Champagne Blanc de Blanc at double the price. It’s rich and austere and delivers at a sophisticated level. Asian pear and yellow apple, then graham cracker and almond biscotti. If I was the type of guy with a house wine... — a month ago

Terres d'Arce Hermitage Syrah 2013

Day 2... smoky bacon bits,, tobacco, cracked pepper, plum and blackberry. Big and bold. Classic. Dry, tannic (especially for Syrah), with rich blue and blackberry fruit. Striking fruit leads to savory finish. Paired very well with elk chili. Showed well after a 2 hour decant yesterday. Drink with decant or hold. — 20 days ago

Fleurie Gamay 2017

Dan R

Nicely focused and well-delineated, with red fruit, earth notes and zippy acidity. Could have used a bit more flesh on the bones, but worked quite well with food. Very consistent, solid producer. — 19 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2018

Dan R

Big, bruising Morgon that held up quite nicely over 3 days. Dense, layered and nicely extracted, with ample berry fruit and a floral element. Hard not to like this. I didn’t get any of the reduction that the previous taster notes — 18 days ago
