Wines of Burgundy - Table 16:24


Domaine Taupenot-Merme

2008 Gevrey-Chambertin: pure pinot noir fruit, great depth, very good
2007 Morey-Saint-Denis La Riotte 1er Cru: earthy nose, lots of rose petals, ripe and structured
2008 Saint-Romain Rouge: candied fruit, concentrated but coarse, simple

Domaine Vincent Girardin

2008 Chassagne-Montrachet Clos du Cailleret 1er Cru: oaky nose, good fruit, actually well integrated on the palate

Maison François Labet

2009 Clos-Vougeot Château de la Tour Grand Cru: macerated fruit, soft, so candied, virtually undrinkable; $149 (!!!!!!!)
2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes: slightly candied, soft palate, the winemaker apparently drinks wine out of a straw; I wrote ughhh in my notes

Maison Joseph Drouhin

2008 Beaune Blanc Clos des Mouches: spicy rose petals, sour red fruit, linear and very finely structured
2008 Puligny-Montrachet: some oak, lemon on the nose, very fresh; oaky on the palate, linear acidity
2008 Vosne-Romanée: spicy lean fruit, linear; palate quite coarse

Maison Louis Jadot

2007 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru: fresh ripe fruit, tropical notes, high acid; oaky palate
1999 Pommard Bertins 1er Cru: green nose, herbal; silky on the palate, lots of brett too; possibly the most disappointing wine of the tasting, very little breed or character to show for its 12 years
2008 Savigny-lès-Beaune La Dominode 1er Cru: slightly candied, macerated nose, hard structure

Domaine Ferret

2009 Autour de Fuissé: oaky nose, citrus, simple
2008 Pouilly Fuissé Hors Classe Les Ménétrières: oaky buttery on the nose, more the same on the palate
2007 Pouilly Fuissé Hors Classe Tournant de Pouilly: fresher, but oak lingers; spicy, cream and wood on the palate

Maison Louis Latour

2008 Chassagne-Montrachet Cailleret 1er Cru: slightly oaky, citrus fruit, very oaky palate
2008 Meursault Château de Blagny 1er Cru: fresh lemon fruit on the nose, energetic, some oak on the palate, viscous finish
2008 Puligny-Montrachet La Garenne 1er Cru: lemon and oak bouquet, slightly muted palate, fruit but oaky finish
