 3/20/2012 (Maison de Marsannay)
 

 

We arrived near the end of the day so many producers were gone or had already finished pouring some of their top wines. So we only visited with a handful of producers, but overall 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin really stood out even in the context of this great overall vintage.

 

  • 2010 Pierre Damoy Marsannay Les Longeroies - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Marsannay
    Tasting. Black cherry aromas with spice hints. Red and black cherry on palate, very well textured. Easy to enjoy today. Very good Marsannay.
  • 2010 Pierre Damoy Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Tamisot - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin
    Tasting. Lots of ripe black fruit aromas. Dense and meaty on palate. Long tannic finish that is very firm but still charming, not coarse or rustic at all.
  • 2010 Pierre Damoy Chapelle-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Black fruit and liqueur aromas. Flavors of blackberry and plum with some rich braised meat character. Power unfolds on long finish.
  • 2010 Pierre Damoy Chambertin-Clos de Bèze - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru
    Tasting. Black fruit aromas and flavors with very charming spice. Dense and powerful, but simultaneously elegant and refined. Very impressive. 93-95 point potential to me today.
  • 2010 Pierre Damoy Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Similar black fruit to the Beze just tasted, perhaps slightly less forward and accessible aromatically. Lush and enticing black fruit flavors with huge spice. Great power, explosive finish. Overall I slightly prefer this to the Beze for the long-term, this showed 94-96 point potential to me today.
  • 2008 Pierre Damoy Chapelle-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Slightly reductive today. Big fruit aromas, slightly more subtle on the palate. Firm tannins front-and-center today giving a slightly angular character. Good for its level, but I prefered its 2010 counterpart just tasted for long-term potential.
  • 2010 Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
    Tasting. Much like I remember from when tasted in Chicago last month. slightly floral with fresh and vibrant black cherry aromas. Great spice. Incredibly elegant and textured with great finesse. Very exciting wine.
  • 2010 Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Combes aux Moines - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
    Tasting. Also much like I recall from last month in Chicago. Classically Gevrey with black fruit, meaty character and an obvious animale element. Long, dense and powerful finish.
  • 2010 Faiveley Mazis-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. I liked this far more than when tasted last month in Chicago. Slightly floral start with bold black fruit providing an elegant start. Powerful black fruit dominates the middle with spice unfolding towards long, elegant finish. Very exciting wine for its potential in 15-20 years.
  • 2010 Geantet-Pansiot Marsannay Champs Perdrix - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Marsannay
    Tasting. Fresh but simple black fruit on nose and palate. Moderate length and intensity.
  • 2010 Geantet-Pansiot Gevrey-Chambertin en Champs - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin
    Tasting. All black fruit on palate, quit elush and ripe. Big and firmly structured with a dense, meaty and sauvage character. Good long-term potential for a Villages level wine, but slightly less refined than many other wines tasted today from Gevrey-Chambertin.
  • 2010 Geantet-Pansiot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Poissenot - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
    Tasting. Dense black fruit to start with good background spice. Palate shows more spice and lots of every structural element to complement the good fruit. Lots of energy on finish. Could be a good value worth seeking out.
  • 2010 Geantet-Pansiot Charmes-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Also dense and slightly backward with a very traditional Gevrey animale character. Palate also dense, black and masculine with lots of power. Will need plenty of time.
  • 2008 Camille Giroud Charmes-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Earthy aromas to start with a sweet, spicy character. Black and blue fruit on palate with good herb flavors coming through in the middle. Moderate power and length.
  • 2008 Camille Giroud Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Red and black fruit aromas with modest fresh herbs. Palate showed more black fruit, but very elegant and well textured with silky tannins. Already beautifully balanced with great power emerging on long finish. Outstanding 93-94 point potential for me today.
  • 2010 Domaine Humbert Frères Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Poissenot - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
    Tasting. Very good aromatic start shows floral, spice and black fruit character. Simple on palate with mostly blakc fruit,, modest structure, slightly simple finish.
  • 2010 Domaine Humbert Frères Charmes-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Ripe black fruit with great spice aromas to start. Similar lush fruit on palate with sensational acidity, tannins and minerality,a ll in great harmony. Sensational raw material here, showing great (93-95 point) long-term potential today. Ever-so-slightly better than its 2009 counterpart also tasted here.
  • 2009 Domaine Humbert Frères Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Poissenot - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
    Tasting. Similar to when tasted late last year back in Chicago. Very ripe, but well supported with big structural elements. Definitely preferred this 2009 over its 2010 counterpart also just tasted.
  • 2009 Domaine Humbert Frères Charmes-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Ripe black cherry aromas with some liqueur hints. Palate is also big, lush and fat. Very alluring, but I prefer the amazing 2010 vintage also just tasted.
  • 2010 Domaine Denis Mortet Fixin Champ Pennebaut - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Fixin
    Tasting. Ripe and balanced black fruit. A very well done Fixin that really made me sorry Mortet didn't have any more of his Gevrey cuvees to taste so late in the afternoon.
  • 2010 Domaine Denis Mortet Marsannay Les Longeroies - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Marsannay
    Tasting. Ripe but vibrant red fruit aromas. Wonderful fruit flavors for its level with modest spice and very good balance. Often one of my favorite wines from Marsannay, this 2010 certainly doesn't disappoint.
  • 2010 Domaine Sylvain Pataille Marsannay Clos du Roy - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Marsannay
    Tasting. Big black fruit but somewhat backward today. A lot of substance here, but time is required.
  • 2009 Domaine Sylvain Pataille Marsannay L'Ancestrale - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Marsannay
    Tasted. Tried immediately after Pataille's equally sensational 2010 l'Ancestrale, I think this might be the best "one-two" combo I have ever tried from Marsannay. Ripe black fruit with a charming perfume. Palate has the same intense, powerful, sauvage black fruit character with great concentration. 92-93 points for me today.
  • 2010 Domaine Sylvain Pataille Marsannay L'Ancestrale - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Marsannay
    Tasting of barrel sample. Perfumed and spice-drive nose with lots of fresh black fruit. Palate shows incredible concentration and power from start-to-finish, yet great balance and nuance. Long and energetic. Tasted just before the also great 2009 l'Ancestrale.
  • 2008 Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin
    Tasting. Black fruit, hint of oak, with a forest character. Moderate black fruit flavors come through with a classic, meaty Gevrey character, everything in excellent harmony today. Very good for its level.
  • 2009 Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin
    Tasting. Ripe black fruit aromas and flavors with some good spice hints from fruit and oak. Lush and concentrated, I slightly preferred the clarity and precision of the 2008 just tasted.
  • 2008 Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin
    Tasting. Much like I remember from last month at La Paulee in SF, this has lots of black fruit, well complemented with structure and energy.
  • 2009 Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin
    Tasting. Ripe black fruit with good supporting spice. Very good balance and length for a Villages wine. I have a slight preference for this vintage of Marc Roy Clos Prieur vs. its 2008 counterpart also just tasted (as opposed to the Gevrey VV, for which I preferred the 2008).
  • 2010 Domaine Taupenot-Merme Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Bel-Air - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
    Tasting. Good mix of red and black fruit aromas. Palate more black fruit, well supported and lengthened by excellent acidity and fine tannins. Another very impressive and long 2010 Gevrey for its level.
  • 2010 Domaine Taupenot-Merme Mazoyères-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tasting. Black fruit aromas with good spice and a slight floral background note. Lush and powerful blackberry and black cherry, with great structural support and balance that already give it a regal, elegant character. Although I don't have a lot of experience with Taupenot-Maume wines, I will definitely look for this at release. 93-94 point potential for me today.
