Vougeot, Côte De Nuits

Domaine de la Vougeraie

Clos du Prieuré Monopole Vougeot Chardonnay 2012

Impressive white from Clos Vougeot - balanced acidity, stone fruit and minerality. Came off as a 1er cru burgundy Chardonnay. — 2 days ago

This will further improve with age. Solid producer.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Romanée-St. Vivant Pinot Noir 2012

Archiving my tasting notes and realised I had forgotten to add this. My second encounter with any DRC was just a swig of a two day-opened 12' RSV. My notes are far from detailed - immense and firm. Oak and stems very present, but seamless. Floral, red fruited, huge Vosne spice, and plenty mineral. Clearly high level with plenty of stuffing. Power without weight.

Domaine Trapet Père & Fils

Clos Prieur Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Cardamom! He must have used stems. Lacks elegance. A good wine but one could have done better with the fruit of the stellar 2005 vintage. Needs air to mellow out and open up. Hint of bitter. Cherries. Reminds me of bitter chocolate just a touch. — a day ago

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2008

2008 was the right call as the wine is starting to pick up some lightly developed tertiary notes of dry flower and berries. Strong core of red and dark fruit. Light and supple on the palate with elegant acidity. LOVE! — 11 days ago

Domaine A.-F. Gros (Anne & Francois Gros)

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1990

Bright tawny color. Looks great in the stem. Luscious nose. Bursting with fruit. Notes of tart bing cherry, sois bois, Asian spice, some rhubarb and an earthy menthol. Expansive in the mouth. Great balance of fruit and structure. Still young. In the zone. This is an answer to the question, “when is a great aged red burg better than anything else” — 12 days ago

No doubt stunning. Amazingly pale in the glass.

Les Lavrottes Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Had to open 3hrs+ ahead of our dinner and by the end it was really starting to show the expressive fruit and shake off some of the tightness. Berries on berries on berries with a hint of spice at the end. — 2 days ago

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1997

Dark scarlet and bright, not showing its age. Briary nose. Notes of black cherry, moist earth, old dark wood and black pepper. Very masculine. In the mouth it’s surprisingly balanced. A bit dry in the finish. A touch vegetal. A decent wine but lacking the emotion of a better vintage. And probably needs more time. — 6 days ago

David Duband

Louis Auguste Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir 2017

First time we had this cuvee. Very much in the style of Duband with flowers red fruits and polished tannins in a medium length and very satisfying wine. Really good now but deserves 3 to 5 years in the cellar. — 12 days ago
