  • 2013 Domaine Thomas Morey Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Truffière

    Dinner at Iggys. Served towards the end of the evening. Bright gold, very primary. Nice fresh fruit - lemon, lime, yellow watermelon, pear, but with a touch of oak and cream. Good acidity on the palate, nice fresh fruits, but this was definitely young and would need a good decade or so in the cellar.

  • 1986 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains

    Dinner at Iggys. Drank alongside the Chevillon Pruliers 1970. This was a really stunningly young wine, and from a vintage like 1986, this really punched well above its weight and vintage reputation. Dark red, with hardly any bricking at the rim. A really copious amount of dark ripe fruit on the nose - cassis, juicy blueberries, and plums. Some smoke, wet rocks, leather emerged after the 2 hour mark. On the palate, a little rough on the edges, but still displaying that juicy dark fruit profile, ripe and opulent and showing incredibly young (most of us guessed 1999!) Hardly any secondary characteristics as yet, there was a firm amount of acid and tannin. I've no doubt this will improve further, unfortunately that was my last bottle. My only gripe was that it didn't seem to evolve much (it cant be closed surely) and appeared slightly boring.

  • 1970 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers

    Dinner at Iggys. Drank alongside the Chevillon Vaucrains 1986. This was made by Maurice. Cloudy, and almost pink in appearance. There was a touch of oxidation on the nose, but more port like rather than the sherry, soy notes. Palate was definitely showing well - with resolved sweet tannins (yes there were some remaining), cherries, raisins, rose syrup. Some earth, sandalwood and tea leaf with extended time. I'm surprised that this could hold well in the glass, but a pity the nose was not too agreeable.
