A large glass is necessary to capture the brilliant aromatics of Talmard’s Macon Uchizy. Aromas of ripe Meyer lemon, peach, honey and mint just blast from the glass upon pouring. The wine takes on weight with aeration, developing flavors of crisp green apple, juicy peach and lemon custard. The finish is long and fresh, so good with food. Roast some salmon, make sweet corn risotto, use it as an aperitif, it’s a great choice for a house white to be enjoyed all year round.
The 2020 Savigny-les-Beaunes Rouge, is the product of ancient vines, upwards of 75 years old in the lieux-dits of Planchots and Connardises. It’s a blockbuster red Burg, blasting out of the glass with an aromatic profile of spiced red berries with just a touch of savory anise.
This is a special wine from a small and incredibly hardworking family producer. The wine is drawn off a 0.26-hectare parcel of roughly 45-year old vines in the lieu dit ‘Les Vireux’ which borders its very expensive neighbor, Meursault lieu dit Les Vireuils. The east facing slope and shallow stony soils of this parcel account for a gorgeous and rich expression with juicy and bright lemon-lime and white peach flavors that carry through a long, intensely mineral finish.
It’s no wonder this is a hot little ticket amongst some of NYC’s best restaurants; this is a killer wine at a great price. The 2022 Petit Chablis has an attractive nose of citrus rind, white flowers, and wet stone. In the palate, the wine is racy and mineral with just a touch of salinity. The hallmark of the great 2022s will be tension and length and Sébastien’s little wine has both in spades. The acidic/mineral cut will make this fantastic at the table and a great candidate for short term aging.
Lydia Cornu’s newly released Haut-Côtes-du-Beaune is quintessential Red Burgundy. It’s made from super old vines and a low yield, with no new oak in the aging process. The wine is an absolute joy to drink– a bowl full of berries on the nose, high-toned, racy fruit in the mid palate with the structure and length that is the hallmark of Cornu-Camus wines. It’s delicious now and will be delicious in a decade. It’s the kind of Red Burgundy value that is ridiculous hard to match.
It’s sourced from old vines near village Tonnerre, rooted in the ancient chalk of Chablis, just like the mighty Grand Cru Preuses and somehow under $25/bottle on case orders. The Bourgogne opens with a fine bouquet of green apples, summer pears flecked with the sense of a chalky stoniness. The mid-palate is loaded with tension, just brimming with a fresh vibrancy that finishes a minute long.
Their newly released Chablis AC 2022 soars from the glass, redolent of green apple and citrus cream. The fruit is generous, and expansive on the palate with layer upon layer that just gets better with air. The finish is a mile long, with just great tension, speaking to Fèvre family’s old vine holdings in the chalky limestone of Fontenay-Près-Chablis.
“The 2021 Chablis Les Fourchaume Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru has one of the prettiest noses from Laroche with wild peach and light melon aromas hints of yellow flowers in the background. The palate displays compelling balance and acidity; it’s taut and fresh with a touch of sour lemon lending tension on the finish. Good potential.”
The newly released 2022 Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin has some big shoes to fill as the last four vintages have earned 92-points or higher, but the early indications are that this is line with previous vintages if not even a little bit ahead at this stage. The problem is – there’s almost none to go around with much smaller yields. Still this is beautiful and crisp, with good focus, energy and depth. I get the signature green fruits on the nose, with some Asian pear, and a hint of jasmine blossom. There’s a beautiful mineral streak that highlights this one. It’s a fantastic White Burg for the price.
Philippe makes this wine from vines that are all 60+ years in age from a steep site at Gevry’s northwestern-most limit at the top of a hill that neighbors 1er cru vineyards Les Champeaux and Combe aux Moines. Here, just like in the neighboring 1er cru vineyards, the soil is extremely stony clay-limestone, imparting so much character to the wine, it’s hard to ignore. It’s just incredible how fresh the nose is, even after all this time in the bottle. It’s so inviting and silky smooth with some spicy notes and truly impeccable balance.
The secret to Philippe’s tightly wound, complex Pinot Noir is a combo of ancient vines, natural farming techniques, and low yields. The wines are built to age, with incredible tension and length. And the secret to me securing his other-wordly 2017 old-vine Gevry-Chambertin can be chalked up to a great relationship and over a decade supporting superior Burgundian winemaking. The wine is scary good. The nose is wild, filled with spiced dark raspberries, red flowers, and baking spices. The palate is elegant and racy, with a dynamic tension that runs right through its minute-long finish. This is a high-toned, wound-up Pinot, that is starting to hit its prime and is really turning out to be a ‘must-have’ for true Burgundy lovers.
This is a super elegant Meursault from the family-run estate located in the village of Monthelie, between Volnay and Meursault in the heart of Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. It leads with nutty aromas of brioche, fresh butter and delicate citrus and is extremely well structured, long and stylish with great purity of fruit.
