Les Fichots Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2019

Lyle Fass

My favorite Pernand 1er Cru. Classic nose of dark cherry fruit, brambly berry fruit, wild mint, spearmint, desiccated leaves, sous bois and citrus rind. Very complex and pure. So Fichots. Grippy, gritty, silky and dense with dark cherry fruit and forest floor inner mouth aromas and silky but substantial tannins. Needs air. Wonderful. As this airs the tannins smooth out and the energy increases as does the length.

Les Serpentières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Lyle Fass

Wow this is singing. Stunningly deep floral/cherry nose. Mid season cherries that are perfectly ripe and juicy and so clear. Unreal spice and tweed jacket as well. 9.5 nose. Blown away. This drinks so well with 5-6 years on it. Palate is just heaven. Juicy and so decadent with good weight and luscious black cherry and late season red cherry fruit. Sapid and deep. Mineral finish. Outstanding showing. Unreal balance and freshness. It’s a 9.5 right now. Tannins need to smooth out so maybe even a 9.6 with air. — 3 months ago

Les Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Electric tension. Smells like smashing two rocks together. Lime, gooseberry, white peach. Like the Millenium Falcon entering warp speed. Probably would’ve called Premier Cru Chablis in a blind. — 12 days ago

Les Vergelesses Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2020

Lyle Fass

Blackberry, floral, black cherry, so deep and almost Syrah like nose. Syrah/Pinot hybrid. Elegant, sappy and pure. Classic Girard balance. Smooth even though I hate this word. So fresh with ripe tannins but provide terrific structure and depth. — 3 months ago

New Glou Fenaughty, Girard, Testa and Cloud Vineyard Marsanne Blend 2023

2023. Diverted my latest shipment from the D&G club to NE since I knew I’d be back for the holidays. I’m glad they included this gulpable “nouveau” again this year. Paired great with local chèvre and olive sourdough! — 16 days ago

Les Lavières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Lyle Fass

What a nose of sour cherries, ripe red apple, earthiness mid season cherries and so sappy. So elegant, unctuous and wide. Perfect balance and drinking at peak. No rush but drink up. — 3 months ago
