Sur Gamay Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Nose has oxidized yellow apple, pineapple core, peach pit, lemon zest and older, wet oak.

Palate has day old pineapple slice, dried lemon peel, creamy butter, green banana peel, zingy acidity with nice sandstone-like minerals on the medium-long finish.

Seems quite advanced for a 2016 vintage, a nose and (sort of) palate of a wine 6+ years its senior. Our only bottle, likely we could get another, but at ~$50 it's not worth it to us. I did decant for about 90m, based on experience with other 2016 S-A wines, not sure if this was enough time for this bottle, but it is showing improvement with glass time.

At hour 3+ the semi-ripe, tropical fruits are finally making an entrance 👍

Volnay Pinot Noir 2017

Man I love this wine. Duchovney said “god hates us all”. Which may be true. But some days he loves volnay drinkers. And on this day he loves me. At least over dinner of medium rare magret with shallot truffle red wine sauce (yes I used a quarter glass of this in the sauce because I’m a baller).

In any case boo yah. This needs an hour to settle down so dont pop and pour this at this point. The first thing I want to talk about is the texture. It passes by the palate with a clear but not thick alert to its presence. Just palate coating like a spray gun. Just soaks the palate an inch deep. Perfectly pure cherry fruit at the tipping point between fresh / young and deep/ dense. Some spice. It has that palate vibrancy thing going on. Really sticks on the finish. Long. Hits the top of the mouth between gum and tooth.

MOs def a hand over land wine as this is definitely 1er cru quality. Outrageous for village volnay. Me love-ee this producer.

Les Bons Feuvres Beaune Pinot Noir 2015

Such a good value Burgundy. Sweet, earthy, gravelly notes along with sweet cherry sap. Lively, soft cherry and limestoney flavors. Nice acidity too. Not particularly concentrated or complex but more than makes up for it worth friendliness. — 16 days ago

Clos de la Cure Pommard Pinot Noir 2017

Lyle Fass

This is brilliant. Huge expressive nose. So clean and full of mid season cherries, spice, flowers, mineral, licorice, high end bubble gum. So dope. Palate has stunning sweetness and purity. Oh man what a sphere. Stunning ripe tannins. Beautiful purity and so delicate. What a Pommard. Showing stupid elegance. True wow. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Ripe and juicy tannins and such complexity. A lot of material. Awesome. — 7 days ago

Les Pezerolles Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Lyle Fass

Classic Pezerolles. Stoney, surreal and layered. Just gorgeous. Tightest out of the gates so far. So floral. Gorgeous lithe elegant and ephemeral cherries. Cherry flower. Sick nose. Licorice and flowers. Just amazing. Juicy and complex with stunning intensity and finesse. Stoney throughout. Gorgeous elegance allied with sweet fruit and all on a silken string. So juicy with great breadth and depth also so so so long. Stunning. Ripe and Stoney tannins. Such a wonderful Pezerolles. — 7 days ago
