La Digoine Côte Chalonnaise Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2020

The 2020 Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise La Digoine opens in the glass with a remarkably perfumed bouquet of red cherry, raspberry, cranberry and fresh spices. Medium to full-bodied, I love the smooth tannin structure in combination with a great flavor definition. Drink now until 2035. — 14 days ago

Les Clous Aimé Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Chardonnay 2018

2022/8. As I’ve noted lately, it feels like the de Villaine whites have added another level in the last several years - deeper, more complex and more satisfying, without sacrificing any joyousness and without trying to be Meursault or anything like that. — 3 months ago

La Fortune Côte Chalonnaise Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019

2022/9/15-16. After drinking up all the 2016s and 2017s in Japan, we’re now on to more recent vintages. This was lovely as always, and the fruit seemed especially intense, fresh but rich. — 2 months ago

Baronesa P. Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Blend of 75% Cab Sauv, 9% Carmenere, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Cab Franc & 5% Syrah, aged 14 months in French oak, 65% new. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, spices and herbal earthy tones. On the palate flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry and currants, with herb notes and black pepper spice. Ripe chewy tannins showing it’s youth, long finish ending with earthy herb notes. Very nice, let this one develop in cellar for a few years. — 4 months ago

My last of a three-pack. Consistent throughout, and a reminder each time to drink more German wines.

I wasn’t yet born when this wine was made, and that always makes a wine fun (even if the wine isn’t great). Out of my three, the cork stuck to this one more than the others. Gorgeous golden yellow in the decanter. Plenty of lychee, golden apple, apricot, honeyed stone fruits aromatically. A wine you’d be perfectly fine smelling over the course of an evening. 8.5ABV. Possesses the quality only aged Riesling can provide of a rich weightlessness. On the sweeter side for Auslese, but not overly so. Still sporting good acidity. Botrytis is easily detected, but it’s so well integrated to the profile of the wine. Not getting better, but hanging in there well (especially with Thai food/Oktoberfest food).
