Bourgogne Côte d'Or Pinot Noir 2019

9.2

One of the best values in Burgundy. Producer and estate. Such a gorgeous nose. Big sappy red fruits, elegant spices and cooling minerals. Huge cherry explosion. Real depth here and such vivid aromatic details. So pretty. Wow, 19 is the bomb! Palate is so juicy and so pure. Okay, my man has taken the leap. The balance here is extraordinary. So clean and balanced. Startling purity. This is blowing my mind. Such supple texture. So silken and sweet. Crystalline levels of purity here. Almost a 9.3 and could be with air. Just needs to flesh out a bit. But it’s all there.

After much air this is super floral and just lovely. Stunning fruit. So pretty. Still keeping at 9.2. My initial assessment was correct.

Nose has crushed flint, sliced lemon, mild oak notes, ripe white peach and toasted Italian bread.

Palate has creamy (ripe) tropical fruits, medium oak, dried lemon with medium acidity.

Declassified Meursault? In a nice spot, but probably suggest drinking the 14's on this bottle in the next few years 2023-25.

Chablis Chardonnay 2019

exceptional basic chablis.

is it the vintage? might be, because 2019 chablis is also the subject of this month's eric asimov' nyt 'wine club'

salty, juicy and zippy.
mostly citrus with some stone fruit and a bit of green fruit. and noted greeness on the side.

salted hay comes to my imagination.

it also comes with a lesson, as i could blindly mistake it for a french sauv blanc from the loire. but chardonnay comes out clearly, if you meditate on it.

medium + 🎯 and, what a great aftertaste.

amazing vfm (110 nis).

after a few ok-ish (though cheaper) bottles, we are back to prime wine, cheers!

Pop and pour. Weird. More savory than my last btls, and just perfect aligote for my palate. Yum! — 5 days ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019

Solid white Burgundy. Initially it is very tight, proper aeration and cold temp help enormously. Green straw color with white flowers, mist, wet stone and citrus scents of tangerine and grapefruit on the nose. The pallet follows the nose with bright bright acidity and a touch of honey on the slightly tannic finish. Couldn’t think of a more perfect pairing for PF Changs Kung Pao Chicken. — 5 days ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017

Oops, forgot I had this so recently. Oh well, very different from previous btls and not nearly so oak dominant. Definitely ripe with sweet apple and meyer lemon, but well-integrated lemon chiffon. On the palate: fantastic acidity, sweet citrus, soft mint, velvety mouthfeel, and a tarragon, sweet apple finish. Without a doubt my best btl so far, but still nothing like the 14, 16 or 18. — 10 days ago

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

After a 2 weeks pause for (very mild) health reasons I thought it would be good to pop a bottle I had kept on the side for such occasion.
Cola, cherry, hay and an irony thing one the nose, very inviting. The palate is superlative. Massive acid backbone, superb juicy cherry fruit all along, great width, soft mouthfeel, a little bit of cherry liqueur on the sides too, ample mid palate with a slight drying effect like a subtle brush and a finish with those same cherry juice and cherry liqueur notes. This is so beautiful...

Cuvee Cassaneas Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2018

This is really awesome. First, lemon cream and kiwi on the nose. The palate is linear at first but builds in volume. A quinine-like bitterness provides the bass note and the perception of sweetness and long acids play so well on top. Such precision. It’s hard not to keep sipping this until the bottle is gone. — 2 days ago

That is really some Bourgogne Blanc. I think 19 is great but more treble than bass to play off that metaphor. But elite treble. Lol.

I’m loving this over like 6 days. Can tell how well it will age but damn it’s drinking so generously already. @Lyle Fass which vintage do you prefer?

Quartz Chénas Gamay 2016

Charming, floral, vegetal nose. Fruity and tense mouth, with beautiful floral notes (peony) and a beautiful almost saline mineral line that leads to the tasting. It's a very nice balance between greed and refinement, with superb drinkability. Gamay as I like it💕

Nez charmeur, floral, végétal. Bouche fruitée et tendue, avec toujours de belles notes fleuries (pivoine) et une belle ligne minérale presque saline qui conduit la dégustation. C’est un très belle équilibre entre gourmandise et raffinement, avec une superbe buvabilité.Le Gamay comme j’aime 💕
