  • 1999 Domaine de la Tour Bourgogne

    Beautiful maturing Burgundy nose. The palate, however, was not as mature as the nose would suggest. Still quite a lot of primary fruits in the dark red part of the spectrum. A lighter body and lower complexity hints at the appellation, but a really nice wine for Burgundy lovers on a budget. This has many years ahead of it, and I expect it to improve over that time.

  • 2012 Domaine Bertrand Bachelet Chassagne-Montrachet

    Very pale in the glass with a tinge of gold. Lemon oil, chalk, and crushed rocks on the nose. On the palate, the wine is wound pretty tight, and not giving much more than a tart lemon-lime and rocky profile. I followed this over four nights, and by night four the wine bega to broaden out on the palate and give up more citrus fruits, nuttiness, and complexity. This is a very focused, precise wine and although I understand there is some new oak, there was no noticeable influence. A good representation of Chassagne, but I may have called Chablis if blind.

  • NV Marie Demets Champagne Cuvée 19ème

    This is a blend of 50/50 Pinot Noir/Chard, and at this point the character of the two has yet to integrate completely. The nose is all Chardonnay with lemons, minerals, and an autolytic/yeasty character. The palate on the other hand is all about the Pinot Noir with a more fruity, vinous character and mouthfeel on the palate. The acidity of the wine seemed lower than it probably is due to the body and a bit of roundness that I assume is from the dosage. An interesting and two faced wine, and one that I'm glad to have a few more of so I can see how the two parts integrate over time.
