Domaine Tollot-Beaut


Domaine Tollot-Beaut Savigny-Lès-Beuanes 1er Cru ‘Champs-Chevrey’ Monopole 2018

Fascinating comparison with the Pavelot Dominode 18. There’s a similarity with the fleshy generous fruit and shape to the fruit. The Tollot Beaut goes for a slightly softer mouthfeel with very silky tannins. Like many 2018’s rich mouth filling fruit is at play, a darkness underlying. I’m going to be fascinated to see the Leroux, Pavelot & Tollot-Beaut Savignys evolve over time. As this opens in the glass the air induces refinement and elegance. Delicious wine that in a blind tasting I'

Domaine Tollot-Beaut Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru ‘Les Fournières’ 2018

Again a fascinating difference. When you head to Aloxe-Corton, there is some barely noticeable wood here. It’s doing a superb job adding focus and definition to the wine. This is such a deceptive wine. Wicked depth and length have been tamed to offer a balanced complete wine. Combining the appellation and the generous year gives this ripe yet still fresh flavours. Red fruits, with an earthiness, and a little baking spice. I get the impression that given time this will become something quite sp

Domaine Tollot-Beaut Grand Cru ‘Corton-Bressandes’ 2018

"A brooding nose only reluctantly reveals its extremely fresh notes of plum, cassis, violets and pungent earth. There is a bit more volume to the powerful, concentrated and serious big-bodied flavors that evidence a lovely minerality on the mouth coating, firmly structured and strikingly long and beautifully well-balanced finish. This bad boy of a Bressandes is a knockout but one that is clearly going to require extended cellaring to soften what are presently resolute tannins." Drink: 2035+ Don'

Domaine Pavelot


Domaine Jean Marc & Hughues Pavelot Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru ‘Aux Guettes’ 2019

Here too there is a mentholated top note present on the more sauvage and forest floor nuanced aromas of red and dark currant. I very much like the sense of underlying tension suffusing the even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract that buffers the very firm tannic spine shaping the beautifully long finale. This serious, austere and compact effort is quite tightly wound and a wine that is unlikely to make for especially interesting drinking young; then a

Domaine Jean Marc & Hughues Pavelot Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru ‘Les Gravains’ 2019

Notes of oak toast and menthol surround the moderately high-toned aromas of red and dark cherry, plum and warm earth. There is terrific intensity to the vibrant, intense and well-detailed medium weight flavors that also brim with minerality on the even more compact, austere and firmly constituted finale. The quality is excellent though I underscore that this is presently a block of stone and it would be largely pointless to open a bottle before at least 7 to 8 years have passed. Dinrk: 2034+ ♥

Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Bourgogne Rouge 2019

"Wow. This Bourgogne Rouge has serious oomph. The nose promises layers of ripe black cherries, sweet liquorice spice, dried herbs and earth... and the palate delivers. In the mouth, elegant fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity that stands up to a core of seriously concentrated fruit. But it’s the elegance with which this is all delivered that impresses me most. A delight to contemplate and an absolute pleasure to drink." Madeleine Horrigan Limit 2 bottles per person

Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Rouge 2018

This year’s blend includes a quarter of declassified villages-level wine from St-Romain and Monthélie. The Bourgogne-level fruit is drawn mostly from the excellent Maison Dieu in Pommard, Les Mont Pellans in Meursault, some Estate vines in Volnay and even a little contribution from Vosne-Romanée (Croix Blanches). The remaining 25% comes from the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits above Vosne-Romanée. The élevage took place in 22-hectolitre Grenier cask supported by a few 228-litre Burgundian pièce

Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Rouge 2019

A great mixture of sites this year includes 25% villages wines from St-Romain Sous le Château, Savigny and Monthelie. The Bourgogne-level fruit was drawn from the excellent Maison Dieu in Pommard, Mon Poulain in Volnay, Belles Côtes in Meursault and Croix Blanche in Vosne. Then there’s a good glug from the Dames Huguettes vineyard which lies in the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits above Vosne-Romanée. Make no mistake, these are serious vineyards for a wine at this level.

Domaine Henri Germain Côte d’Or Blanc 2018

"A notably ripe yet still attractively fresh nose flashes a hint of exotic fruit character on the notes of white peach, poached pear and whiff of lychee. There is once again very good energy to the delicious, round and rich flavors that also deliver fine length on the clean and dry finish." Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Frionnes HALF BOTTLE 2018

Lamy has 2.4-hectares in the 1er Cru Les Frionnes, with vines planted in 1935, 1960 and 1985. It’s a southeast-facing site with old, decomposed limestone/clay soils and a plethora of small rocks in the topsoil. The vines are adjacent to the Derrière chez Edouard, but this is a slightly warmer site and is therefore picked earlier. Frionnes gives both pulpy fruit and vibrant, saline freshness along with a compact, rocky close. As you can see from the notes below, the 2018 is a lovely example.

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Monthelie 1er ‘Les Duresses’ 2019

A much earthier and more sauvage-suffused nose speaks of poached plum, dark raspberry and a hint of forest floor. There is both excellent energy and details to the nicely mineral-driven medium weight flavors that conclude in a grippy but not tough finish that offers fine depth and persistence. Les Duresses almost never drinks especially well young and I don't see this one doing that either so be prepared to give it at least 5 to 6 years first. Allen Meadows, Burghound 89-92 Points

Domaine Joannes Violot-Guillemard Bourgogne Côte d’Or ‘Maison Dieu’ 2019

Maison Dieu is the name of an actual lieu-dit situated in Pommard but Violot chooses to employ the term cuvée anyway; in the period prior to 1937 this well-situated parcel was declared as Pommard rather than Bourgogne “Ripe aromas of red berries, plum and plenty of earth lead to voluminous and very rich middle weight flavors that possess a seductive texture before concluding in a clean, refreshing and only mildly rustic finale.” Burghound

Domaine Henri Germain Côte d’Or Blanc 2019

Here too there is plenty of citrus influence to the white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in petrol nuances. There is equally good energy to the well-detailed and delicious middle weight flavors that conclude in a slightly firmer and bracingly dry finish. This too is excellent for its level.

Mid-Weight presence with generosity. Good solids work adding some funk. Nice bit of textural phenolics. Lamy with more phenolics. Transparent and lythe. Lovely bit of spice. Playful, and layered. Harmony. Extra time sees beautiful resolution to the wine. Deceptive depth and length.

Domaine Bernard Moreau Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge Vielles Vignes 2019

The reds of Chassagne a little secret that's slowly making its way out of the bag. I had one of Alex's red the 1978 monopole Morgeot 'La Cardeuse' in September 2020. In a word stunning. Ask Alex and he'll tell you the soil profile is very similar to Chambolle in that neck of the woods. A ripe, fresh and relatively deeply pitched nose reveals notes of pepper and earth inflected dark berries and plum. The nicely rich and vibrant medium-bodied flavors possess a supple and round mid-palate while
