Definitely some California characteristics. Med + concentration with a yellow core. Med + intensity and complexity showing power and ripeness. Corn, vanilla, ripe orchard fruit, chervil, cotton candy, hay, spices, and caramel. The palate had a firm structure with med + acid and abv showing great tension with some bitterness. The complexity was med + but wound up and compact. The balance seemed a little disjointed and the finish a bit awkward. Needs some time to come together. #vincentgirardin #meursault #chardonnay #cotedebeaune #burgundy #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago
First bottle #premox second bottle outstanding. Yellow core (first bottle golden) delicate notes of cooked apple and pear, hazelnuts, brown sugar, and white mushrooms. Palate was still tight and took about 1 hour to fully wake up. Great complexity and balance. A delicate but lengthy finish. #dugatpy #meursault #chardonnay #burgundy #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago
Not just any Bourgogne here, this is from Domaine Berlancourt and drinks miles above its simple appellation status. For 2011 the density and clarity in this are very surprising, not to mention the depth and tension. The nose shows plenty of oak upfront that over the course of a few hours mellows out, evening out with thewhite florals, minerality, deep citrus and juicy apple notes. Just a baby, this will go several more years easy. Keep an eye out for this one, got it from @Lyle Fass as its about the only place in the US to get it. #burgundy #chardonnay #berlancourt #meursault — 3 years ago
A treasure of terroir, this is in a great place right now showing excellent integration of the fruit, oak and mineral components. The intensity cresendos on the finish, building to a flush of minerality, fruit and tension. Notes of sesame seed, saline, yellow citrus, and sea shells.
