La Forest Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2005

Nice young yellow canary color. Heavy in the glass. Tropical nose with notes of sea breeze, lemon, kiwi, white stones and tan spice. Glycerol and rich in the mouth. California like, but with nice Chablis nuances. I wonder how this will evolve over next 10 years. Maybe like 92’s? — 5 days ago

This seemed a little light on the finish. The 76. La Tache is much better — 7 days ago

La Tâche Pinot Noir 2007

Ouvert le matin et laissé en cave pour une lente aération. Un nez époustouflant, magnifique, complexe, des couches d’arômes se succèdent à un rythme incroyable, fraises, fruits rouges, rose, épices, probablement un des plus beaux nez de DRC que j’ai bu. Une bouche d’une finesse et d’une élégance sans pareil, pas le plus puissant mais quelle classe et profondeur, d’une longueur inouïe. Bu sur 4 heures juste pour en garder pour l’évaluer et n’a jamais bougé.

Open in the morning just to give it a slow dose of air, the most incredible DRC nose ever and i am lucky to have drank quite a few, and one of the most amazing nose on a wine i ever saw. Layers and layers of complexity. The palate is classy,elegant, deep and gorgeous, not the most powerful but what a wine, the length is unbelievable.

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2020

Likely not an ideal bottle with what I felt was excessive volatile acidity. Nevertheless, the red fruits and spices were still clear, and the velvety texture was quite delightful. Finished with bright acidity and an acetic-mineral mix. Probably a showstopper if pristine. — 3 days ago

the stuff is immortal and Raveneau Valmur for me Beats Clos, better minerality. Sounds like a stellar vacation!

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2005

High fill, perfect cork. Dense red and dark fruit, somewhat developed. No signs of fruit fading. A little bit of forest floor. Was expecting it to be a lot more developed, presumably this bottle had a long way to go. I wish I had another… — 13 days ago

Clos De La Roilette

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Gamay 2021

Medium purple color. Could easily be mistaken for Pinot Noir. Aromas of violets, black currants and earth. Big flavors of creme de cassis, black cherries and roasted hazelnuts. Long finish and bristling acidity. Good stuff! — 12 days ago
