Sous Frétille Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Chardonnay 2020

Lyle Fass

Some of the best sleeper white Burgs are from Pernand and this is my favorite. Have had every vintage since 11. Gorgeous nose. Lemon drop, discreet and sweet wood. Really air, also feral and mineral. Caramel nougat but more in a terroir baby corton charlie sense than a barrel sense. Palate is bracing, fresh and so complete with minerals to burn, sweet wood, green apple and pear and all so refined. Excellent. Wow. With air this is a 9.5. The finesse now is here. — 4 days ago

Les Vergelesses Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir

So crazy old burgundy.

Needs an hour.

Library book. Cherry flower on the nose. Gorgeous perfume. Really light pink rose petals.

Palate is essence of cherry. Not actual cherry. Silky but less grippy than silk. Amazing.

Do NOT drink before 1 hour. Before that it’s just weird.

Domaine Fernand Girard

La Garenne Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale lemon in color with a light green hue.

On the nose green apples, grapefruits, spices, limes and minerals.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with grapefruits, limes, green apples, white pepper, herbs and light earth.

Tangy finish with limes and lemons.

This is a nice Sauvignon Blanc from Côtes de Gascogne in the Loire. Nicely balanced with nice acidity, and feels very New World in style.

Easy drinking and good by itself or with food. Showing mild complexity.

Paired nicely with a nice pool day.

11% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2021

This was a lovely, well-balanced pairing with our crab cakes, but it would also be very enjoyable on its own. — 2 months ago

Les Rouvrettes 1er Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2019

Lyle Fass

Girard’s 19’s are a triumph. Best since 14 and 12. Complex florals, spice, ripe mid season cherries that are just bursting. So vibrant and lifted. Palate is bright and juicy with rich cherry fruit and terrific concentration and intensity. Very fresh but also matched by luxurious fruit that is perfectly ripe and just perfect. A great wine and vintage. Elegant with sweet tannin and lovely balance and texture. Remarkable value as well. — 20 days ago
