Vougeot, Côte De Nuits

Alain Hudelot-Noellat

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir

This has a wonderfully succulent nose. Soft red fruit, that wonderful classy burg depth. On the palate great balance and super fresh for its age. Nice balance at the middle and a good finish. The front is the thing here and the rest is a bit more prosaic s as often is the way with Clos Vougeot, but this is a lovely wine in great shape. — 3 days ago

Nuits Saint-Georges Pinot Noir 1978

First bottle corked, second had the cork pushed into the bottle and noted when capsule was removed—it was dead. Final bottle was perfect—excellent old Nuits with iron and sous bois. — 21 hours ago

Domaine Robert Groffier

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Gave this 90 min of air in a decanter before touching it. Dark tawny and mostly translucent. Exciting nose. Notes of sour cherries, rhubarb, slate stone, some menthol and iron, old desk wood, spice and a touch of kirsch. Dusty fruit in the mouth with a long finish. Can probably benefit from a bit more age to develop more complexity. Plenty of life in front of it and pretty dynamic tonight. — 2 days ago

Bas de Combe Nuits St. Georges Pinot Noir 2014

Nose has wet red/black currants, ripe-tart cherry, dry autumn leaves and dry soil.

Palate has ripe cherry, ripe plum, blackberry and red currant. Not much complexity at this time, but showing bold acidity and medium tannins.

I think still quite youthful, future bottles could be 2024+, hoping for improvement. I've generally been happy on the progress of many '14 Burg's, this seems more youthfully austere in its development.

Lavaux St. Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1995

Kicked off very closed and felt like an off bottle for the first 10-15mins. But with food and air, the fruit really started to show itself and the palate went brim brooding dark damp fruit to dark cherries and ripe raspberries. Had some earthy notes and mushroom-y notes as well. A bit relieved that the wine finally came around. — 13 days ago

Very impressive for its contemporary presentation. Very unusual for a burg. Very quaffable at this early stage. Seek this one out!

Pale transparent red with some hints of brown. Tannins are resolved. Elegant. Snappy acidity provides lift. Cherry/Strawberry fruits. Long finish. Very nice. Drink in the next couple of years. — 9 days ago
