Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Alec Seysses is a big believer in his ‘06, says it’s better than the ‘05. Still, a group at our table found the intensity of the ‘10 made it the Clos de la Roche to put away. The ‘09 was related by Seysses as their first vintage with over-ripening concerns, however deftly handled. The ‘14 had large support as delicious and most enjoyable at present. Ripe, dense, and quite open was the ‘19 with a huge future. The ‘17 Clos de la Roche was also served. Sneaking into the picture, and maybe my favorite of the night, was the ‘17 Clos Saint-Denis (see score). — a day ago

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 1996

Excellent example of DRC with Asian spice beautiful balance between red and black fruits. Not a demanding finish. Also whilst we popped and poured and drank over the next two hours it does not feel like this wine has much gas left! So drink up! It’s not a 1993 or 1999! — 2 days ago

Morey Saint Denis Pinot Noir 2020

Shimmering medium ruby, the 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis Village from Domaine Dujac shows well at the moment, mingling aromas of red and black cherries, blackberries, earth and a dash of cumin spice. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture and good depth, this elegant Village finishes surprisingly long and will surely benefit from extended bottle aging. Drink from 2024 until 2045. — 4 days ago

La Tâche Pinot Noir 2002

Gorgeous rise and violets on the nose. Soft, seductive, a hint of spice. Really settled and gorgeous on the midpalate and looong on the finish. Superb. — 17 days ago

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Great! Still very young with apparent oak, but so seductive at this stage. A real “power without weight” wine and in a way, almost an antithesis of the Roty. Red fruit dominated, with flowers, spices, heaps of minerality, and traces of meat. Powerful, especially in Rousseau-sense, yet so elegant and pure with lacy textures and superb salinity. Boah! I really did love the minerality here. Drinking so well now, but will take some time before it hits its peak (NB: the mind-bending 76’ Beze we had a few months back is surely proof). — 19 days ago

Domaine Georges Roumier

Chambolle-Musigny Pinot Noir 2020

Roumier's 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Village is currently in a heavily reductive phase. After two hours in the decanter, restrained aromas of ripe red cherries, raspberries, herbs and some wood smoke emerge. Medium bodied with ripe and almost powdery tannins, the wine is densely structured and will undoubtedly reward patience. Drink from 2025 until 2035. — 17 days ago
