Les Tuyaux Nuits Saint Georges Pinot Noir 2021

very pretty nose of roses and violets. Initially there was a very distracting green/stemmy streak. Less noticeable after an hour of air, but still slightly underripe — a month ago

Found in the New French Wine book. Deeper and juicier than I think of Pinot noir, but still very light on the palate. Went well with salmon. — 15 days ago

Dessus de Montchenevoy Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2020

2022/9/11-13. This was interesting. Despite the style and availability, I haven’t had a ton of Chanterêves, but have thoroughly enjoyed what I have had - and given what I read from Jasper Morrison, I was pretty excited for this. Right now though, it is very young indeed - wild and intense. It’s got a crunchy, juicy feel, with plenty of lip smacking acidity, but also a powdery concentration one doesn’t see much in Burgundy (at least before global warming...). The nose starts off wild, grapes, perhaps a touch volatile - one hopes it’s fine with the apparently low sulfur. Over time, beautiful floral elements and hints of spice show, but it does feel like this could use some time to settle down. — 2 years ago

Hinohatake Cuvée Pinot Noir 2020

NOTE TO EXPERT: this is the Hinohatake cuvée This started with just a touch of high-toned candy (especially compared to the Chanterêves Savigny), but settled to reveal a very pretty, sweetly floral character, tempered with more savory herbs and a subtle minerality. I find Burgundian-styles Pinot Noir to be one of the best matches for Japanese food (especially dishes featuring shoyu, sansho, yuzu, etc.), and this was no exception - even with sashimi (with negi ponzu), Kyoto-style taitan relying heavily on dashi, etc. Not massively complex, perhaps, but lots of flavor and not lacking in dimensions. Overall, one of the most satisfying Japanese Pinot Noirs I have had in a while. — 2 years ago
