2019 Roses de Jeanne / Cédric Bouchard Champagne Blanc de Noirs Côte de Val Vilaine Pinot Noir

Not sure what other people are raving about as this is way too young to warrant some of the super glowing reviews. Hype aside for Bouchard, I struggled to enjoy drinking this as I felt like I was flushing $100 down the drain for the privilege of a Selosse disciple

The wine itself was interesting. Straight apple upon opening and over the course of a few hours showed hints of raw dough, flint, and even some pineapple. But the glimpses of scent were fleeting and left me vigorously swirling in my burgundy glass just hoping something more would show through...nothing more. The palate imo was the best part of this. It's big yet restrained and sends tingles all around the mouth. It tires in bottle quickly, however so you either get some olefactory satisfaction or the nice palate, but not both at the same time

Less than 24 months on lees so technically not a vintage wine, this could be interesting in 10 years, but for $200-$250 market price now...no thank you

Wines during Provence trip; 6/18/2022-6/21/2022: At Le Bistrot de l'Oustalet since the restaurant was closed during the days that we were there. Similar stewed qualities to the Rayas, and surprisingly soft without structure for a young Jamet. Again, not bad but not what I expected probably because of poor provenance.

Best Bordeaux blend that I've had in months. Light on it's feet but packed with flavor. Fragrant nose, great fruit and acidity. Fine finish. Why can't Bordeaux do this anymore? Maybe it's the southern Rhone varietals in the blend.

White
2000 Bouchard Père et Fils Chevalier-Montrachet Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay
Chevalier-Montrachet 2000 fra Bouchard.

Ingen pox! Meget bra vin! Dufter litt vel mye av fat på åpning, men det roer seg veldig med luft. Hasselnøtter og smør på nesen, toner av sitrus og vanilje. Rolig kremet munnfølelse, syren er i bakgrunnen men helt tydelig tilstede for å bære vinen. Utviklede aromaer av sopp og mose kommer med luft, og vinen strammer seg ytterligere opp i kroppen. Konsentrert hele veien og veldig lang! En C-M på den elegante siden. På Richelieu på Ile de Re.

    Great wine...
