2019 Benjamin Leroux Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir

This is outstanding. Full of strawberries, cherries and petals. The wine is clean and precise. Speechleess wine, very expressive. Not pretending to be anything else, no need at all. Not deep, nor multilayers or density. It is all about finesse, delicacy and beautiful harmony. Everything work together as the best possible team. Monsieur Leroux achieved the best possible outcome from these humble parcels. This is the best pinot expression from a village. Chapeau!!!

2018 Domaine de L'Arlot Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots Pinot Noir

Surprisingly very drinkable, approachable at this stage. Red berries, strawberries, pretty subtle, delicate and balanced with soft tannins, quite a modern profile. Not deep or heavy. Give it some air and will show you some layers but it will definetly gain complexity and species with time. Today is a joy, tomorrow will be a blockbuster.

2012 Château Pontet-Canet Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

Medium body wine a bit mute and tight in the beginning. Recommend to decant it for 3 hours, a hint of reduction due to biodynamic viticulture. It quickly blows off.
Black currant, chocolate, violets, lead pencil, very fresh. Dark colour with slight edging tile typical of Cabernet. Not opulent but very balanced with good volume. Definitely underestimated vintage. Ready to drink as long as you give it time to breathe.
Difficult to beat for less than a 100 bucks.

    1/2/20, 4:08 AM - You know, I've recently tried it 2 more bottles and it is not developing as good as I thought. Maybe it is now in a stage in the middle of nowhere or something but I expected it to be much better. Still some tannins present of course but pretty bold already. However less fresh and vibrant than a year ago. Decant it 2 hours and drink it. Don't safe many bottles...
