Volnay, Côte De Beaune

Mark Haisma

Paux Bois Volnay Pinot Noir 2017

One of my favorites from Mark Haisma. Elegant and fresh. Raspberry, cherry 🍒 chalky hint of black tea. An all limestone vineyard which is unique for Volnay were iron rich soils dominate. — 3 days ago

Clos de la Bousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

A recommendation from the staff here at Le Villaret, this took about 5-10 minutes to blow off a little funk, but then really opened up to reveal a beautiful palate of dried cherries and earth. Terrific. — 11 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.

@David T Mildly sappy and beautiful, wish I could have had more than one glass.

Louis Latour

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! — 5 days ago

! !Yarivyo Wine Score!
8.9

Delicious well made, elegant, rich and balanced. This village has 1er Cru quality and given the issues with the hail and destruction of vineyards I will not be surprised if it does includes 1er Cru plots, nose is rich with a hint of wet forest, animalistic notes, mushrooms, cassis and black berries, medium body, round, smooth, rich, delicious finish. My score 89, drink to 2022 — 14 days ago

9.1

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.
