Red
This was very good. Pressed violets, washed berries, dark soil tones and faint cinnamon spice. Started quite airy and gained core weight with air, becoming more sappy but always remained light on its feet with good definition for it's class. An excellent village Vosne, would buy again.
Red
I’ve enjoyed other vintages of this wine but I really didn’t care for this. Blind I might have called Russian River pinot noir. Finished the bottle rather begrudgingly.

Still a little nervy and slightly blocky, but irresistible after 3-4 hours open. Bize made really really nice 17s.

Red
Didn't take notes but this was really good. The tannins seem to be softening and it has a charming red fruit profile without the slight herbal/medicinal note Savigny can often have. Not the best bottle of Bize I've ever had, but it was an addictive sipper and the bottle was gone too quick.
Red
Cold stone, lavender, washed strawberry aroma. Dark raspberry fruited palate with some truffley earth nuance and star anise like spice. a hint of bright citrus zest. Some chambolle grace in the structure, yet slightly assertive in a way I seem to associate with the house style.
Red
Washed berries, faint river-rocky nuance and ivy spice on the nose, pressed violets and orange rind with air. Primary, open and seductive, the red fruit is very pretty but not quite crystalline. A relatively wide and slightly muscular shape is still elegant and excellently balanced, never weighty. Finishes with slightly coarse young tannins that seem to have a ways to go yet. A very enjoyable bottle.

My last of 3. In a great spot, really blooming now. 14s have always been kinda open, but this was singing.
Red
Had over two days. Better day two, more relaxed with less noticeable oak. A forest air, evaporated rain like nose with some floral, faintly grassy tones behind the red, occasionally blue fruit. A ruby jewel in the mouth with multidimensional berry fruit and an almost cushioned or pillowy velvet texture. A nice pine resin nuance on the finish.

Red
Washed strawberry, turned earth, licorice spice, waterfall mud. Less mushroom, more floral perfume. Still feels a couple years will help this wine release a bit further
Red
Diffused floral nose, light pepper and dark chocolate, some strawberry jam, faintly herbal. Almost burgundian mushroomy loam enters the picture before the tannins rise up and dominate the wine. First 30 minutes was plush and silky, light but wide, then it locked itself up.

Red
Opened on a whim and didn't take notes, so this is more of an impression from memory. Quite good and showing much better than a 2014 Vergelesses a week ago. The richness of the vintage shows in a nice core of fruit, but blind I wouldn't have said 15, as it was not huge or blown out with ripeness. Was a very good bottle of young Bize and should be excellent in time.
Red
Airy, floral nose. Almost defused, essential oil style, pollen like, with some candied strawberries. Still very primary on the palate, with juicy red berry fruit, earthy spice, and a suggestion of leather. Good density and length with classic Chambolle delicacy.
Red
Excellent, much better than my previous bottle. Maybe because my expectations were a bit lower this snuck up on me in to one of those almost magical experiences where it feels like you could keep drinking the bottle endlessly. Classic Bize.

Red
Pretty high toned rose petal nose, but with a little green streak running through it, some candied apple gloss hides it a bit. Airy body, but tart fruit, like black cherry with a little black tea. Not quite as detailed as some other D'Angervilles I've had, could be because I bought from a wine store that may have not stored perfectly. Ok because I got heavily discounted.
White
Curd, yellow flowers, lime zest, crystalized ginger on the nose, lots of definition for a BB. Layers of nutty, smoky flint and dripping peach on the palate. Excellent.
Red
Pretty tight aromatically, but showing some classy dark strawberry and a little turned soil. More extravagant on the palate, concentrated dark berried fruit, expensive leather and plush inner mouth perfume. Nuances are still quiet but changing throughout the bottle. Built to age, a lot of wine for it’s level.
White
Grapefruit rind, chalk, ginger, lemon sorbet, even a sea shell element although much more cote de beaune than chablis. It lacks the length and intensity of a 1er but is easily much better than tons of village wine. Unbelievable bourgogne. So so so tasty.
White
Way young. Wine opened backwards kind of marmalade-y and nutty. Blossomed almost all of the sudden halfway through the bottle with 2 hours air. White and yellow florals, stream moss, slightly brioche-y nose. Bitter lemon, quince, a little honeyed element on the palate, with some chalky-stoneyness on the finish that really feels like river pebbles tumbling down your tongue. Concentrated and intense.

White
Strong aromas of chalk, lime zest, and yellow floral distillate. Chalky intensity continues on the palate, with preserved lemon, river rocks, and some spearmint or pine needle, even a bit of meursault like hazel-nuttiness. Moderate length.
Red
2014 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru Pinot Noir (view label images)
Damp moss, suede leather, floral with a tiny bit of pepper on the nose. Intense fruit on the palate, like cherry pits, turns to white mushroom umami, very Morey in character and a cold stoniness on the finish that is of very good length. This could obviously use more time, but came across very giving and open.
Red
Wild herby strawberry nose, a whiff of anise like spiciness. Delicate mouthfeel. Tastes like a hilltop wine, no real bass notes. High toned, watermelon/cranberry like fruit, very pink/red spectrum, some dirt-y licorice root and a prominent slate/limestone quality (mineral water style) sits on still grippy but very fine grained tannins.
Red
Cork slipped during shipping. Removed foil and cork is soaked and falls in instantly, smh. Decanted for sediment and cork. Still a bit murky, but not bad and a good crimson color, an appropriate amount of orangish-brown hue at the rim. Autumnal nose, dried leaves, figs, some dark chocolate, a faint bit of vinegary volatility, and slightly musty. Potpourri with air. Younger on the palate and vacillates between liveliness and moments of older tasting fruit. Most sips are good with wild strawberry at the edges and tart dark cranberry at the center, slightly prune-y, and a delicate frame that still has some concentration and punch. Any fleeting faultiness seemed to be cured by a few hours in a small decanter.
Red
Dewy florals and peppercorn, loamy mushroom with air. Chambolle typicity on the palate, elegantly lithe. More black than red fruit, slightly stern with hints of dark chocolate and rose petal. Proper 1er length lingers a little metallic and tannins a bit granular. A very nice Chambolle.

I've drank this a few times and each time forget to take notes maybe because it is so good. Very Puligny. From memory it was energetic and zippy on the palate with good cut but some good weight in the middle. Yellow flowers and hints of curdy creaminess on the nose. Hard to not keep pouring more and it's gone quick.
White
Saline with lime rind, cantaloupe and quince on the nose and a crystalized 2017 quality. Some wet slate emerges with air. Beautiful balanced palate with chalk that doesn’t overpower the greek yogurt, citrus zest, and yellow fruits. Appropriate village concentration but pretty long. Not as rustic as I expected. Very good.
Red
Lifted florals and cranberries on the nose, with a smoky mineral accent that turns damp earth with air. Bright red fruit, almost candied with baby fat on the shapely mid palate while retaining elegance. The finish almost sparkles gaining some definition with some lighter berries and ivy peeking out at the edges.
White
Lemon zest, popcorn, faint pine oil and white florals on the nose. A bit tart and sharp at first with some grapefruit rind on the back of the palate. Balances out with air, broadening in shape and gaining some lime curd notes and a chalky or almost Jura like saltiness on the moderately long finish

Red
Young and tight at first. Showing the CLF barrel toast which is elegant. Somewhere between flower pollen and pine needle on the top of the nose, not too precise but appropriate for a village wine with an anise like spice and darker fruit undertones. The 2017 crystalline structure is at play here on the palate although filled out with a bit of roasted meat, dark berry and damp earth like Gevrey character with some creamy oak accents.
Red
A slightly reductive gunflint smoke turns to a bit of peppery spice that accents the rose petal, tart cherry and cold stone nose. Very similar to the 2017 but with a bit more meat on it’s bones and blossoms with more generosity. Everything turned up an extra step, earthy spice, level of bee pollen, floral intensity.

Cherry cola and a bit of pine needle accent the nose of cool mountain berries and lavender. Bee pollen, raspberries, faint warm earthy spices expand on the palate. Beautiful fine grained texture, with great length for village burgundy.
Red
Blossoming flower fields, a little turned soil, cherry pits and cold stone on the nose. Candied cherries, orange peel, licorice, a little ivy on the palate. Young and energetic, a little angular right now. After a few hours of air the angles soften and more moist soil and mushroom qualities emerge. Very good.
Red
Beautiful soft pink/purple floral nose, with cool mountain air and crushed strawberries. Medium bodied mixed berry fruit on the palate with accents of cool mint, licorice, and tree bark. Good length with melty tannins. This is one that keeps you coming back and you wish you had more of...

Rather intense nose of purple florals (still alive, not dried), patchouli spice, candied raspberries and plums. A good amount of creamy oak with a roasted chestnut character that is prominent but complimentary. Big shape on the palate, but not heavy and significantly leans out on day two. Still a lot in reserve, with baby fat hiding some of the structure.
Red
Slightly spiced with dried florals, like potpourri, a bit of brown sugar on the nose and top end. Hard candy, strawberry and a shade of chicken stock in the center. Some limestone character showing through the fine tannins still present but pleasant with good length.
Red
Opens with exotic and classy nose of patchouli, nutmeg, roses, black cherries, some faint leather and licorice. Some stylish oak still sitting on top of the black cherry and filling out the middle of this wine. lots of depth to the fruit but still primary and not as layered or complex as expected. Tasty and open, no fireworks though. Should articulate more if you have the patience.
Red
Very floral lifted nose with a little spice. Oak present but in a very charming and harmonious style. Delicate frame but exuberant black strawberry fruit. First bottle from this domaine, excited about CLF.
Red
Obviously very young but wanted an early look at 17 Bize 1ers while the 17s are still in this charming phase. An airy and cool mountain like nose with some rose petal that softens the slightly stern profile. A bit bundled up on the palate, fruit leaning dark cranberry and very mineral like iron but again soft at the edges with a rose water like subtle perfume. Charming but buttoned up, still showing some flourish. Excited for Bize 17s, a bit more old school than the previous few vintages.
White
Very sharp with nose tingling acidity. Key lime pie and grapefruit zest pierce the nostrils, and is accented by some faint dry grass. Taste bud pucker under the vertical tartness of it in your mouth, reminds me of Hubert Lamy St Aubin, but more wild. Finishes broader with salty chalk and smoke overlaying some green Apple skin.

Still young and starts with a compacted black cherry/blueberry, violet bush, pepper steak, evaporated rain type atmosphere. After 5 hours it blossomed in to an intense crushed violet perfume, cranberry fruit with a licorice root accent, and some enoki mushroom freshly sprouted from damp soil. Faint bubblegum as it softens further. Minute long finish. Still some cedar-y, faintly vanilla-y oak present but pleasant. Gorgeous and lives up to its reputation.

White
quince, lime, white florals, roasted candied nuts, a bit of buttered popcorn. Just great right now. There’s something almost meursault like about it but less creamy and more of an orange rind quality.
Red
Second bottle much better than the first I had which seemed plummy and more medicinal. This one started that way but after 2-3 hours in the decanter (first bottle was p'n'p) it shed those qualities and became more floral tinged, pure dark fruit and "sous bois"-y . Good length, although still a bit large in shape compared to other bottlings from Bize. Still, it had the signature of the domaine and was sad when there wasn't any left in the bottle.
Red
Opens with wet autumn leaves, cement, potpourri, peppermint. cinnamon, vanilla and roasted chestnut like oak still not fully integrated. beautiful light weight texture that still carries the intensely black cherry, plum like fruit. then there is a bit of tar like minerality accented by some dusty old book like floral perfume. long long finish.
Red
Airy, on the vine alive floral petals, slightly herbaceous with a spice tinged nose. much more mineral on the palate, wet slate, turning slightly iron like with air. Dark cherry/raspberry fruit character. Great silky texture. Fantastic honest style, not "showy".
Red
Young, not completely closed but shy. Day one showed some vosne spices and dark florals, some black cherry like fruit, but fairly short on the palate. Day two started out almost without flavor or aromatics, but once warmed up in the glass, became more chambolle like than vosne with airy rose petal and strawberry flesh gaining some weight and length with a darker fruit profile given lots of air. Not grand cru density at this time and in a bit of an odd spot I would think but still shows 1er chambolle like with air, not powerful but elegant.
Red
Lilting floral aromatics, a bit of ivy like earthyness, faint spice, and super pure cranberry/cherry fruit. Silky, graceful texture. Gained floral bouquet and slight exotic spice with air.

Red
Primary black cherry fruit dominates. Some black olive, pepper and smoky meat flavors are noticeable but in the background. Not as new world-y as other notes led me to believe. Sure this is ripe and young, but I enjoyed it. Right now it is still a long way away from Challiot typicity, but I think it will get there, and the fruit is clean and pure.

Red
Red and black fruit, earthy spice like rhubarb. Lovely style, approachable but elegant. Great value
Red
My third bottle of this wine. Blackberry and cherry, morning dew and graphite, faintly floral. Well integrated tannins with moderate grip.
Red
Young and ripe but still beautifully complex. Tobacco leaf, jammy fresh tomatoes, crushed pepper, and candied florals with a slightly masculine structure.
Red
Like a smoky cherry cola. Ripe dark fruit and tobacco leaf
