Tasting, brief note. Rich and enchanting on both nose and palate. Lots of power with good density, while also elegant and weightless. Moderate acidity. Probably better to enjoy younger, 2021-2028, than celllaring long-term.

91 points
Tasting, brief note. Apple with savory spice and background floral character. Subdued nose, more robust flavors with good depth and structure, and a bright, minerally finish with very good length. Very good now, better to cellar a few years.

89 points
Tasting, brief note. Rich stone fruit with good depth for its level. Slightly sweet, spice-driven finish. Good+ Villages, but probably not a bargain.

2016 Domaine Leflaive Meursault 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Âne France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru
90 points
Tasting, brief note. Ripe apple and peach with toasted walnuts. Good weight and better length with seemingly unctuous textures. I'd think this best on the younger side, 2020-2026.
White
2016 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru
91 points
Tasting, brief note. Ripe stone fruit like the previous wines, but here we start finding the structure to make this cellar-worthy. Floral with ripe peach and slightly sweet spice, but clearly the acidity and minerality that keeps this bright and vibrant. Better to cellar a few more years.
White
2016 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru
93 points
Tasting, brief note. Rich stone fruit with ripe apple and complex spice and textures, making this already charming as well as complex. Seemed to show Grand Cru density to me. Very impressive wine, very cellar worthy.
White
2016 Domaine Bernard Moreau et Fils Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Saint-Aubin 1er Cru
89 points
Tasting, brief note. Ripe start with floral touches. Gets softer and lighter toward the middle, then brighter and minenrally on finish. Good weight and length. Good+ overall now.
White
2016 Domaine Bernard Moreau et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet
90 points
Tasting, brief note. Also floral with ripe stone fruit and apple throughout, but this also easily retains balance and harmony. Very good villages level. Very good now, with the ability to age and possibly improve.
White
2016 Domaine Bernard Moreau et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
91 points
Tasting, brief note. Dense and very concentrated. Also ripe, with faint tropical hints. Not particularly forthcoming right now, but there is so much here. Cellar at least 2-3 more years.
White
2016 Domaine Bernard Moreau et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
90 points
Tasting, brief note. Slight reduction. Ripe stone fruit throughout. Like Maltroie, this is backward and this also seems more muscular and less accessible. Good stuff here, but it will take time/ air.
White
2016 Domaine Henri Boillot Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru
92 points
Tasting, brief note. Very rich and complex aromas. Palate is also rich with a broad array of fruit flavors - lemon curd, poached pear and dried apricot amongst them. Dense and long, not quite showing the textural brightness as another bottle from late last year, and not quite as texturally charming and "Genevrières" as I expected. Give this time.
White
2016 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru
93 points
Tasting, brief note. Very rich and concentrated. A bit of new oak protrudes for now, but that will dissipate shortly. So much good stuff going on, but there is nothing demure about this wine.

2016 Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Beaune 1er Cru
91 points
Tasting, brief note. Complex aromas of ripe peach, apple and lemon curd. Lots of spice, including some new oak that needs another 6-12 months to fully integrate. so much here, with impressive concentration and already emerging nuance. 91-92 points. Cellar another year or three+.
White
2016 Marquis de Laguiche (Joseph Drouhin) Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
Tasting, brief note. Less expressive or density or complexity vs Clos des Mouches, so maybe I was just expecting more. Enjoyable and rich, but I found it slightly flat today vs its typical vibrant character. Still good, 88-89 points?
Red
2016 Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Rouge France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Beaune 1er Cru
Tasting, brief note. Bright red cherry everywhere with some background black cherry as well. Elegantly styled with sneaky structure and good+ length, showcasing savory spice nicely. 91-92 points.
Red
2016 Joseph Drouhin Chambertin-Clos de Bèze France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru
Tasting, brief note. A surprising elegant wine for the vintage, with so much going on, but so subtle and restrained. You have to pay attention, but early fall flowers, boysenberry, black cherry, braised meat, anise and black pepper all seemed to come through to varied degrees in the two sips I enjoyed. This was marginally showing Grand Cru density, but I expect this will put on weight with time in the cellar, 93-94+ point potential, 2030 forward.
White
2016 Louis Jadot Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru
90 points
Tasting, brief note. Dense and nicely rich, but also with good balance, even if not quite as texturally elegant as I expect from Genevrières in more typical vintages.
White
2016 Louis Jadot Corton-Charlemagne Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Tasting, brief note. Lots of ripe apple, preserved lemon peel with savory spice. Good concentration with an intense depth, but also nicely weightless. 92-93+ point potential.
Red
2016 Louis Jadot Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots Domaine Gagey France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
90 points
Tasting, brief note. Both red and black cherry aromas and flavors showing more Vosne than Nuits character to me to start, but then becomes more meaty and burly from middle to finish. Should drink well young with some air, but age gracefully for decades.
Red
2016 Louis Jadot Corton-Pougets Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton Grand Cru
Tasting, brief note. Powerful black and red cherry that is dense to start, is tasty throughout, even though it gets a little brooding by the long finish. Very good 91-92 point potential, probably 2030 forward.

2016 Bernard Zito Vosne-Romanée Les Vigneaux France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée
90 points
Tasting, brief note. From a vineyard near the Vosne cemetery and Croix Rameau 1er Cru. An array of red fruit start-to-finish that comes across as bigger and more dense than Villages. Nicely persistent as well. First time tasting this producer's wine.

2017 Bernard Zito Savigny-lès-Beaune Ez Connardises France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune
Tasting, brief note. Great nose, backward palate. Red fruit throughout, slightly meaty, lots here, just cellar needs time.
Red
2017 Bernard Zito Beaune 1er Cru Les Tuvilains France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Beaune 1er Cru
Tasting, brief note. Slightly reduced. Red cherry, some black cherry. Dense and fleshy, but needed more air for the reduction to dissipate, so tough to fully/ fairly assess.
White
2016 Bouchard Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Domaine France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Tasting, brief note. Clearly on the rich side, showing baked apple and tropical fruit notes. Very good density. Not particularly nuanced today, but it's much too young. Very good potential, but I wouldn't touch a bottle until at least 2025 or later.

92 points
Tasting, brief note. Intense concentration with rich black and red cherry and some sweet spice notes. This will require 5-10+ years int he cellar, but has 92+ point potential. I usually prefer Nico's Caillerets over Santenots, but in 2016 prefer this Santenots.

Tasting, brief note. Red and black cherry with earth and roasted game, finishing with some austere tannins. Overall good for its level. Better to cellar another year or two.
Red
2016 Domaine Gérard Julien et Fils Nuits St. Georges France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges

Tasting, brief note. Black cherry and plum with roasted meat and dark chocolate. Very dense, very concentration. Slightly firm and backward, this has so much substance that is already interesting, but really needs plenty of cellar time to really strut its stuff. 92-93 point potential, 2030 forward.

2016 Alain Hudelot-Noellat Romanée St. Vivant France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru
95 points
Tasting, brief note. Red and black cherry with some berry that shows so much complexity and nuance already. Simultaneously comes across as rich, muscular and texturally weightless, a difficult accomplishment for such a young wine. One of the day's highlights. I might be underrating this wine at "95 points."
Red
2016 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Vosne-Romanée France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée
90 points
Tasting, brief note. Almost all red fruit with black fruit hints, all accompanied by subtle spice with impressive density for Villages level wine. If blind, I'd have thought 1er Cru. Very good balance and length for its level. So pretty now, but better to wait at least a year or three.

2016 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
Tasting, brief note. As usual, a cuvee from NSG that comes across as very Vosne-styled. Elegantly spiced with more complexity and textural nuance vs the Vosne Villages, but less density. Very good 90-91 point potential.

2016 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Ruchottes-Chambertin France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru
94 points
Tasting, brief note. More black vs red berry with some rich plum notes and delicate spice. Long, expanding finish is incredibly bright with brilliant and sophisticated tannins. Just so good, with the only negative thing I can say is that the Clos Vougeot tasted next was even more exciting.

90 points
Tasting, brief note. Ever-so-slight reduction with red berry and cherry start-to-finish. Less powerful than many 2016s, but so refined and elegant with sneaky good+ length and weight. I preferred this over Clos du Château tasted next.
Red
2016 Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair Vosne-Romanée Clos du Château France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée

94 points
Tasting, brief note. Floral and spice driven start with complex cross-section of black and red berry aromas and flavors. Powerful without overt heaviness, and a very long, exciting, minerally finish. So charming now, with enormous upside from 2025.
Red
2016 Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair Echezeaux France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Echezeaux Grand Cru
94 points
Tasting, brief note. More dense and ripe than Reignots, but not quite as nuanced yet, or as texturally exciting. I think I enjoyed Reignots slightly more today, but this Echezeaux has greater (94-95+ point) upside.

91 points
Tasting, brief note. A bit more powerful vs VV, and also more muscular, just slightly less complex. Accessible now, but this will be more expressive and expansive with 3-5 more years in the cellar.
Red
2016 Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos de la Roche Grand Cru
Tasting, brief note. Bright red fruit to start captures your attention and imagination. Getting increasingly dense as it progresses towards a long, expanding finish. One of the day's highlights, this has 93-95 point potential, but will require at least a decade to fully express itself, and two decades will even be better.
