Colin-Morey, Pierre-Yves 2011 Meursault Les Narvaux

The Narvaux vineyard is located above Genevrieres and Porusots; it is a very rocky hillside vineyard, and some sections of it seem to have been blasted from the bare rock. This is another great and accessible village level wine from PYCM, with very intense fruit aromas, good mouthweight and an intense finish — a fantastic bottle. There are many great producers of Narvaux, notably Domaine D'Avenay and Jean Marc Roulot.  Their Meursault Narvaux cost considerably more than that of Pierre Yves Colin Morey. JBT

Colin-Morey, Pierre-Yves 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Embrazees

The Embrazees vineyard is located just below Les Baudines and borders Santenay. Wines from Les Embrazees are fuller and fatter than those of Les Baudines which is cooler and more exposed to the wind. Embrazees has reddish soil from the clay and is full of small stones from the limestone and these qualities really come out in the wine. This wine illustrates the very meaning of terroir in Burgundy; you could use it as a textbook example of classic Chassagne terroir. It is rich, full-bodied, and full-flavored with a spine of acidity that comes out on the finish.  This is another lovely 2011 that is open now and will be good to drink while it puts on more weight with age.

Colin-Morey, Pierre-Yves 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Ancegnieres

We opened a bottle of this right away when we received our allocation of Chassagnes, Pulignys, and Meursaults from Pierre Yves Colin Morey, and once again the Ancegnieres impressed us all. Full flavored, very strong — the almost cheese-like aromas that I associate with Chassagne Montrachet, something unique to Chassagne. Beautiful balance, great fruit and great length — a really fantastic bottle of White Burgundy from the great 2011 vintage.  These vines are 80+ years old and came from the family domaine.  This vineyard is a Chassagne Montrachet AC just below Batard Montrachet, a village level vineyard that abuts a Grand Cru.  Year after year this is a favorite wine from Colin Morey.

Colin-Morey, Pierre-Yves 2011 Puligny-Montrachet Le Trezin

The "le Trezin" vineyard is the only village-level vineyard on the hill of Montrachet. It is a very cool site high up on top of the slope.  Puligny wines are very special in 2011 and this wine is no exception. The balance between the forward fruit and the acidity creates a dynamic tension — after the intial blast of fruit this thread of acidity comes out — a hallmark of the 2011 vintage. It is this beautiful acidity that introduces the very long finish. This wine is very forward; expressive with bright fruit, good mouthweight and is already very complex. It is chiseled, precise, elegant and racy.   Very "Puligny". This will drink well young and will put on weight and become more elegant as it ages.  This wine is a great value from Puligny Montrachet and there is not that much Puligny Montrachet produced in an abundant year, let alone a lean one.  Considering how little wine was produced in 2010 and 2012 it would be prudent to stock up on this wine.

Sansonnière (Mark Angéli) 2018 Vin de France Les Gélinettes

Gélinette is an old French word for grouse, a bird you used to find wild quite a lot in this part of Anjou, especially when polycultural agriculture was still conducted. Historically Mark made a little bit of red, mostly from cabernet sauvignon planted in 2000 but the wines were always quite rustic and tannic, so he decided to overgraft them and plant more grolleau, a grape fallen in disgrace and considered of poor quality for complex wines. Mostly linked to bad, high-yielding clonal selection dedicated to the production of cheap rosé in the 1970s and 80s, grolleau noir, an indigenous variety, can in fact produce beautiful reds with right massales vines and low crop. If you are a gamay of terroir freak, you will love grolleau on schist. Once called “Jeunes Vignes des Gélinettes”, the cuvée is now just names “Gélinettes” as the vines got older and are grolleau-dedicated. In 2018, the grapes were hand-destemmed - with a wicker basket, macerated for 3 weeks and aged in large tank. La Sansonnière’s reds don’t have historically the same refinement than the white, but the touch of Martial and Bruno can be felt these last years: this Gélinette from a dense, low-yielding vintage, has an enticing, velvety texture with just a little grippy final calling for fatty fish or meat. You can slightly chill it with no problem.  To be enjoyed in the next 5 to 10 years.  0g RS, 0 ppm total of volcanic sulfur. Pascaline Lepeltier.

Ledru, Marie-Noelle NV Champagne Brut Grand Cru

A lesson in terroir from Marie-Noelle LeDru, a very small grower who farms just 6 hectares, mostly in Ambonnay (1 in Bouzy). Working very naturally in both the vineyards and the cellar, these micro-grower Champagnes are hand-riddled and disgorged and ferment naturally in stainless steel through malo. The Grand Cru Brut is predominately Pinot Noir, and this current offering is based on 2006 fruit it's both full and racy with ample red fruit. rsg

Savart NV Champagne Brut Ecueil "L'Accomplie" Disg 2019

Frédéric Savart's "L'Accomplie" bottling picks up where "L'Ouverture" leaves off. Also from vines in Ecueil, the wine is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Complex and elegant, this wine feels drier than "L'Overture" and sees an additional year of lees aging. The finish has pronounced and lip smacking minerality and the texture is fine and creamy. MSB
