  2. Sylvie Esmonin Gevrey-chambertin Cuvee Vielles Vignes 2015

    "The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has the same percentage of whole bunch fruit as the regular village cru (60%). It has an exquisite bouquet, perfumed and intense with seductive aromas of red cherry, crushed strawberry and raspberry, real Pinoté coming from the glass here. The palate has a touch more sucrosity than the village cru, yet it maintains balance and precision. It fans out with careless abandon towards the finish with blood orange and quince notes lending complexity. This is utterly charming, fresh and vital, a Gevrey that should give 15-20 years drinking pleasure."92-94 PointsNeal Martin - The Wine Advocate

  3. Sylvie Esmonin Gevrey-chambertin Cuvee Vieilles Vignes 2014

    "The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has a far more convincing bouquet than the village cru with more complexity in terms of fruit profile, here as much red as black, with superior mineralité and delineation. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry. This is a structured wine but with ample black dusky fruit, a little introverted in style at the moment, perhaps closing down after bottling. Yet there is a sense of coiled up energy here and I admire the precision expressed on the finish. This is worth checking out, although it needs 4-5 years before it reaches its drinking plateau. Tasted October 2016."92 Points Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate

  4. Sylvie Esmonin Gevrey-chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-jacques 2015

    "The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques, which includes 60% whole bunch fruit and the same percentage of new wood, has a very mineral-driven, harmonious, sensual bouquet that is one of the best that I have tasted from the domaine. There is energy being emitted from the glass here even before you dig your nose in! The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin. It comes replete with vibrant red fruit infused with orange rind, white pepper, almost sorbet-like towards the composed and very tensile finish that has impressive depth and a very long aftertaste. You can feel the tongue tingling long after this has departed, just a touch of orange zest lingering a minute later. This is an outstanding Clos Saint-Jacques from Sylvie Esmonin."94-96 PointsNeal Martin - The Wine Advocate

  5. Sylvie Esmonin Gevrey-chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-jacques 2014

    "Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Esmonin's 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques feels a little jammy on the nose by comparison to Rousseau and Jean-Marie Fourrier's 2014s: succulent ripe dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit, bold 'n' brassy yet with admirable purity. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, the oak still present and a guiding hand at the moment, though there is plenty of brooding dark fruit beneath it. It will need several years in the cellar before the rough edges are abraded by time and the terroir begins to show through. Tasted September 2017."Neal MartinThe Wine Advocate

  7. Labruyere Prieur Bourgogne Rouge 2016

     A brooding and ripe if attractively fresh nose combines notes of plum, violet and earth. The rich, concentrated and entirely serious medium weight and solidly dense flavors deliver fine depth and length on the mildly rustic finish where a hint of warmth surfaces. This is really very good and would make a fine choice for a house red.

  8. Liger-belair La Romanee Grand Cru 2015

    Winery Note: "Louis-Michel Liger-Belair told me that 2015 had a "pretty much perfect growing season except for a bit of oidium pressure that caused us some grief. Otherwise the conditions were clement, very hot and very dry though I stress that it was nothing like we experienced in 2003. Interestingly, the flowering was very fast, which normally is extremely positive yet we had some shatter anyway. Why that was I simply don't know. However I do know that it was enough to cost us on the order of 25% of the potential yield. We picked from the 5th to the 11th of September and the harvest proceeded quickly as the fruit was so clean that there really wasn't much sorting required. The vinifications were easy and I chaptalized nothing. They did unfold slowly and most cuvées needed around 25 days of total cuvaison to finish. I used a bit of whole cluster for a few wines, which is to say around 15% or so. I like the style and quality of the 2015s a lot as they have everything one looks for as they're quite fresh, concentrated and powerful yet elegant, notably ripe yet express their terroirs well and should drink well both early on and with age. In fact, there's not really anything to dislike other than perhaps it would have been nice to produce a bit more quantity but we can't really complain." I have to agree with Liger-Belair's description of his 2015s and when taken as a range, I found them to out-perform the general quality of the vintage. I was also very impressed with the now in-bottle 2014s, revisited below, and this is true up and down the appellation hierarchy; he noted that the wines were bottled in stages which is to say December, 2015 and February and April 2016. Fans of the domaine are not seeing things as there is a new grand cru in the range. Liger-Belair explained that he signed a fruit purchase contract for a .40 ha parcel of Clos de Vougeot that at one time belonged to the négociant arm of the firm C. Marey et Comte Liger-Belair; a review for the 2015 version is below"Tasting note: "Reduction. In the mouth however it's immediately evident that this is just at another level with its sleek, refined and powerful yet restrained medium-bodied flavors that exude evident minerality on the intense, palate coating and massively long finish that is incredibly refined and graceful. As good as the Ech and the Clos de Vougeot are, and they are indeed excellent, the 2015 La Romanée quite simply outclasses them. A genuine 'wow' wine that is very much built-to-age and is going to need it." 95-98/100 Tasted Jan 2017 by Burghound

  9. Joseph Faiveley Volnay Santenots 2015

     "A beautifully complex nose exhibits spicy and soft earth red and blue pinot fruit aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is excellent mid-palate density to the tautly muscular medium weight flavors that also brim with dry extract and minerality before terminating in a gorgeously long and well-balanced finale." 91-93 Points, Burghound.
