La Paulée Passing the Baton. Pretty, floral. Baking spices, cloves. Grippy.

The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Chaignots 1er Cru, like the 2019, has the most expressive bouquet of fruité, crushed strawberry, morello cherries and cranberry; rose petal and light briny aromas emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, and quite fleshy and generous, leading to a supple, vivid finish. Yet again, a sublime Les Chaignots. (Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2020)

Lights out bottle from MG, one of my top 3 favorite producers. To no surprise 2002 is so open and giving and its aromatics could seduce you across the room. It’s very Vosne Romanée like as it shows a beautiful spice character and superior combination of power and elegance. There’s red currants, roasted herbs, sous bois and lovely integrated toasty oak. Finishes with fantastic length, depth and soft tannins. A stunner, and Chef Thomas Keller approved 😇

Mid-weight but feels delicate initially. Opens up and puts on body after a while in the glass. Blackberry, earth, dried leaves and leather. This is an attractive Burgundy at the peak of its window. Generously brought by @Daniel Moritz to lunch - the boys' lunch for orphan husbands during my wife's baby shower.

Closed somewhat on the nose but incredibly silky and rich on the palate. Really compelling right now and should be more open and interesting in 3-5 years.
