Etienne Sauzet

La Truffière Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay

Ginkgo smash rot blows off to wildflower honey and brioche, tart pineapple, chamomile, yellow apple, ginger nose. Tart starfruit, lemon zest, lime pith, lemon-lime peel; wound a little tight. Lemongrass and a green onion element I expect to vanish. Ginseng and glittering lemon oil and racing pith for a long salivating finish. Opened rich and unctuous, but narrowed to focused acid blast.

Nicolas Potel

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

Nose of plummy, sirloin deliciousness; violets and lavender. Imminently drinkable with cranberry and raspberry giving way to tart cherry and a smoky streak throughout. Beautiful and impressive display of finesse with wiry sinew. Perfect silken complement to cedar plank steelhead trout. .

Domaine Paul Misset

Les Barreaux Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2010

Initial funk of light-spoil-fruit, wet under dry leaves, freeze dried raspberry, dried sour cherry, fresh potabello and earth turn slowly to only mushroom funk and pretty powdered raspberry and cranberry, dried rose petal cocoa powder and chicory. Becomes tart, warm raspberry on the nose and palate upon entry. Dark cherry core that has a briny plum sensibility, and the acid has eased into the racy finish that delivers tomato type acid but tart and cola-saffron-cran. #domainepaulmisset #vosneromanée #vosneromanéelesbarreaux #burgundy #bourgogne #bourgognebutnotforgotten #bourgognerouge #redburgundywine #redburg — a year ago

Domaine François Carillon

Les Macherelles Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Lemon, leek, lime, sage, dried pineapple and tangerine pith, jasmine and caperberry nose. Racy lemon pith and oils are rounded just slightly by green olive whisper, rich white grapefruit, snap pea and lemongrass. Seductive and fast!

Domaine Ponsot

Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Rose petal, dried raspberry and strawberry nose, persimmon remnants, bing cherry, roobios and black teas. Cranberry-apple afterthoughts. Bright and young with juicy attitude. Cranberry and tart cherry entry, rose, tar and smoky jerky. Plums and sage with grape leaf. Waiting for full opening.

Daniel-Etienne Defaix

Côte de Léchet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay

Tremendous 2005 showing body and depth for the patient effort. Nose of camomile, baked lemon, lime and tarragon. Medium mouthfeel exhibiting lemon verbena, lime pith, even a lemon bread and tangerine pith on bruised cucumber. Classic and a wealth of complexity. .

Vincent Girardin

Les Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2016

Sometimes you don’t need an excuse to open a bottle of #gevreychambertin. Vincent Girardin’s 2016 effort here is lovely. Decanted for 30+ minutes and tasting notes recorded over the next day as bottle opened up in wine fridge, sipping out of Burgundy glasses. Delicate aromas of cherry preserves, tobacco leaf and sandalwood. Plenty of weight on the palate, hints of licorice, cola nut, a wave of cherry and lingonberry with lush acidity on the finish and gossamer tannins trailing off into a mouth smacking long finish. Those dark fruit and tobacco notes plus the acidity paired well with wood fired turkey pepperoni pizza, believe it or not. It’s humbling to confirm the hundreds of years of hype are justified with the finer wines of #bourgogne.
