2011 P. Dubreuil-Fontaine Père & Fils Bourgogne Blanc
Medium yellow. Toasty nose. Open, ripe pineapple and yellow apple, some cinnamon, and not too much wood. Dry finish. Pleasant surprise.
2011 Michel Colin-Deléger et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru en Remilly
Medium yellow. Aromatics all oak and sulfur now. Lush entry, woody base. Caramel and citrus. Nice feel on entry, good acidity, but harsh, almost tannic finish. I don't care for the balance here.
2010 Domaine Pierre Guillemot Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Serpentières
Light at center. Fragrant and floral. Piquant, lively, and light. Very Savigny in its brambly bite, but elegant with soil-infused finish. Very good.
2010 Domaine Chandon de Briailles Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile des Vergelesses
Light center, pale edge. Cool green aromatics. Black fruit, properly light bodied. Pleasingly pure and limpid with a hint of smoke. Excellent acidity if not great length.
