Pommard, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Marquis d'Angerville

Taillepieds Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2008

Brought to a dinner with some guests visiting from Piemonte. The 2008 “Taillepieds” pours a deep ruby with a translucent core; medium viscosity with no obvious staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with tart and slightly underripe strawberry, cherry, mushrooms, red flowers, varnish (yeah, there’s some VA) stony earth and delicate baking spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin, medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The body is fit and the finish is long and full of energy. This is a really attractive beauty; the sort that you might feel compelled to apologize to for gawking. And, while I found this to be really tasty at nearly 16 years of age, it clearly has a long way to go. Drink now through 2033+. — 13 days ago

Domaine Coche-Dury (J.F. Coche Dury)

Meursault Chardonnay 2015

Man Coche just puts everyone else to shame. 2015 is just incredible, belying the warmth of the vintage with electric energy, racy acids and a texture that sets it apart, wrapping around the palate with tremendous density and depth to its layers. I want to smell its struck match-lemon custard bouquet all day. Still my favorite white wines along with Raveneau. — 9 days ago

Domaine Roulot

Les Luchets Meursault Chardonnay 2020

Roulot’s 2020 Luchets is gorgeous already, incisive, textural and captivatingly elegant showing impeccable clarity of clean and defined white orchard fruit, fresh lilies, marcona almond and stony minerals. The palate is creamy, pure and ultra mineral with racy citrusy acids and exceptional balance and detail. Beautiful wine. — 16 days ago

Bouchard Père et Fils

Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus Grèves Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Brief notes. Showed better than the 2013 vintage we had in December 2021. Quite rich, sweet and fruit driven as well as spicy notes. Tasting more new world in this warm vintage. A good wine without being great. Have the last one in a couple of years ie 2026. — 23 days ago
