2009 Maison Alex Gambal Savigny-lès-Beaune Vieilles Vignes

Pinot Noir more

6/20/2015 - walkerjfw wrote: 89 points

At Charlotte's goodbye party for Sofia. Decanted for about an hour, benefited from the air time.

Consstent with prior notes. Ruby red color. Juicy red fruits, tart raspberries, spices, earth.Very light mouthfeel - medium finish. Nice wine, will probably not improve too much more. Drink over next 5 years (best guess)

Mineral laden red fruits with a touch of earth. Nice acidity. Like this. Decent to good deal at $29.

The wine looks ruby colored and the body is medium. There was no sediment in the bottle and the wine has satin-like texture. It was served with grilled chicken and paired beautifully.

2010 Maison Alex Gambal Chorey-les-Beaune

Pinot Noir more

6/12/2015 - mmcdds Likes this wine: 88 points

This is a nice village Chorey that's fleshed out abit with subtle depth since I last tasted it, yielding pretty red fruit, earth, tarry notes and some greenish, brambly underbrush nuances. There's also some bright acidity at its core that's keeping everything tasting lively. Quite nice and definitely getting better as it ages.

2012 Maison Alex Gambal Bourgogne Cuvée Les Deux Papis

Pinot Noir more

6/9/2015 - mmcdds Likes this wine: 87 points

At this rather young stage of development, this is a nice Bourgogne. There's bright red fruit, earth, tar, some very subtle Asian spice and enough acidity to keep it fresh and vibrant. If this fleshes out abit and picks up some depth and complexity as it ages, it will be a noteworthy Bourgogne with an exceptional qpr. Right now its just very good(and that's not a bad thing.)

2009 Maison Alex Gambal Meursault Clos du Cromin

Chardonnay more

6/8/2015 - mmcdds Likes this wine: 90 points

This is a really good village Meursault with cool green fruit, some baking spice, lots of minerality and a moderately acidic core. There's respectable depth and concentration for its level and the oak treatment that I thought was a little intrusive last year has integrated nicely to become an accent to a very well done bottle of wine. This was drinking beautifully tonight with a couple of hours of air.

Intense and mealy. This wine has a strong acid backbone and a considerable hazelnut complexity. Very fine, powerful and balanced. Drinking well now, but I can see this developing for at least another 8 years.

5/21/2015 - wondersofwine Likes this wine: 88 points

Has some lanolin and vanillin characteristics that come out more prominently after a few days open. I started this (my second and last bottle) before a vacation and finished the final glass after it had been open for about ten days. It wasn't as fresh as the first day but still quite drinkabe.

Very nice! Midweight green fruit, firm minerality, baking spice and a bright acidic core all framed in uplifting, nonobtrusive oak. A really good village Puligny.

2012 Maison Alex Gambal Bourgogne Cuvée Les Deux Papis

Pinot Noir more

5/15/2015 - GTFreek wrote: NR

Nose is interesting, very Old World, must, some power, red and black fruit, carpet, earth like tobacco. Palate is pretty presentation, dark cherries, acidity is medium plus, a little understated on the fruit, definitely a food wine. Impressive proper structure from an American winemaker (went to UNC). Not an incredible wine, but good Burgundy.

1999 Maison Alex Gambal Maranges

Pinot Noir more

4/26/2015 - UpfromtheCellar wrote: 88 points

Perhaps it's a bottle to bottle thing, but this one was mature, savory with nice fruit overtones. Balanced, easy to pair with dinner (Chicken Francaise). Not sure if there is much left out there in the world and not sure Alex offers this particular AOC anymore, but upon reflection this early effort is (finally) becoming something he can be proud of!

Initially tight and a bit musty on the nose, but after 45 mins in the glass this wine started to open up. Bright red fruit with nice texture and balance. Medium length finish. Very nice and drinking well and should offer at least five more years of drinking pleasure.

3/9/2015 - PC73 Does not like this wine: 88 points

This is not my sort of style. very big and powerful wine. currently huge tannins. a pure pinot nose, but just too modern, too polished and dare i say it, to "parkerised" on the palate. perhaps just a difficult phase and i'd hope this mellows, perhaps one to try again in 2020?

Burgundy & Birds (il Buco): By Tim Farrell of BWE

Much more elegant than the Laurent, but still showing some roughness around the edges. Much brighter red fruit here, with more lift and freshness. A whiff of barnyard, but the fruit didn't seem to be as past its prime as the other, and will hopefully blossom beautifully in another 5-8 years.
