Flight 1 (6 notes)

White - Sparkling
2004 Philippe Gonet Champagne Grand Cru Cuvée Belemnita Blanc de Blancs France, Champagne, Champagne Grand Cru
Lots of brioche, Mesnil citrus, classic style, very concentrated and mineral, still young despite 2004. Very fine.
2011 Domaine Nicolas Faure Nuits St. Georges Les Herbues France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges
Sweet red fruit nose, taste red fruit with some dark tones, a bit sturdy, limited complexity. Fine.
2011 Cecile Tremblay Vosne-Romanée Vieilles Vignes France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée
Such an elegant nose, spice, red fruit, lots of body but with a beautifull leanness, drinks so well, so balanced. Very fine, gorgeous.
2007 Domaine Anne Gros Clos Vougeot Le Grand Maupertui France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru
Perfumed nose, took some time to blossom, a bit less expressive than the bottle I drank almost 2 years ago. Red fruit, plum, spice, lots of weight in mid-palate, long finish. Great Clos Vougeot, certainly since this is from 2007. Very fine.
2009 Maison Ilan Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Les Chaffots France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Morey St. Denis 1er Cru
Wow. This is lovely now. Lots of fruit, spice, sweetness, this has developed since the last time I tasted it. Serious wine, volume and length.
2014 Weingut Keller Bürgel Spätburgunder Germany, Rheinhessen
Had to guess this wine blind, thought it was a Morey St. Denis village wine from Burgundy. Red fruit nose and taste, spicy and perfumed, still young, some tannins in the end. Fine.
