Vougeot, Côte De Nuits

Chauvenet-Chopin

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Much better than my last btl about 1.5 yrs ago. Oak better integrated, but still.char and a touch of pyrazine...which I guess I would call vintage character. On the palate: good acidity, roasted strawberry and excellent density with fantastic spice. Soft tannin on the juucy and spicy finish. Excellent. — 19 days ago

Les Cailles Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Nose has dried cranberry, ripe cherry, dried green herbs, black peppercorn, ripe blackberries, mushroom, dried mint and cherry jam.

Palate has phenolic cherry, anise, sweet cherry, under-ripe blackberry, leather, with chewy tannins and a lightly spicy finish.

An interesting showing tonight after a +5H decant, not displaying the same pedigree as our prior bottle ~2Y ago.

24H Update:
Nose has ripe cherry, wet grapevine stalks, dried cranberry persists with dehydrated blackberries. Palate is richer today with more sweet cherry and leather notes prominent, tannins diminished but present. Score change from 9.2 > 9.3 today.

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

Chambolle-Musigny Pinot Noir 2011

Grand Vin - and proud they should be. A lovey burg. Dark fruit and lovey perfumes aroma on the nose. A hint or tobacco and hint on tar on the palate - maybe even a soupçon of chocolate at the tail end of a long elegant finish. — 3 days ago

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

We love clos vougeot. Fun to have 05 next to 10. The 10, was much much tighter still as you’d expect. — 12 days ago

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2015

Nice nose of dark fruit and some Vosne spices, the style is slightly extracted, generous with gorgeous fruits and strong powerful tannins, very nice but a finish that is a touch rustic. 89-90

Beau nez sur les Fruits noirs, des épices et un style assez extrait et généreux en bouche, beaucoup de fruits, des tannins puissants, beau vin mais un peu rustique en finale. 89-90

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2017

Is 2017 young to drink DRC? Sure. But 2014 was corked, so 2017 to the rescue! 2017 is still insanely expressive and welcoming even at this stage with its expansive and velvety texture, elite depth and riveting energy and concentration. It has impeccable balance and an ultra persistent finish, surely to be a star as it further develops and gains complexity. This is my 3rd time having 2017 DRC, and all have been pretty darn accessible. Even La Tâche. There’s no wrong time to drink DRC 💫 — 12 days ago

Opening any bottle of DRC after opening a corked bottle of DRC is straight baller.

Château de La Tour

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir

Lovely . 2013 is maybe a little early but this Grand Cru delivers still. Bright berry if not cherry and I concur with the licorice comment. Great wine that will lay down remaining bottles. — 18 days ago

Just opened up the bottle. I think sage/rosemary is the leading spice. Excellent stuff!

Domaine Dujac

Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Intoxicating nose that can be smelled across the room and one that is quintessential Dujac. It’s juicy with dark fruit and whole bunch spice and there is a surprising level of ripeness and concentration for the vintage. It’s finely detailed and delineated with a silky texture, big structure and excellent length. Open for business. — 5 days ago
