  1. David Duband Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey 2015

    www.burghound.com, Rated: 90-92 Points, "Here too there is a discreet application of wood to the spicy red currant, floral and soft earth nuances. There is a terrific sense of underlying tension to the racy, intense and focused medium-bodied flavors that exhibit good detail and minerality on the beautifully textured finish thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins." David Duband, who exploits, among other vines, the former Jacky Truchot parcels, told me that 2015 "basically gave us a near perfect growing season that, much in the same way that 2005 did, produced fruit with high maturities but also high acidity, which is very rare in Burgundy. I chose to begin picking on the 5th of September and brought in super-clean fruit though yields were disparate, which is to say they ranged from 25 to 43 hl/ha. Sugars were strong without really being high and most wines came in between 12.5 and 13%. One major difference for me between 2005 and 2015 is that in the former vintage I used no whole clusters in the vinifications but in 2015 I used between 60 and 90%. Stems of course don't make or break a given vintage but purely from a stylistic standpoint, I prefer my 2015s. That said, I suspect that they will behave in much the same fashion as did the 2005s, which is to say that they're pleasant and charming now but my feeling is that they will close down once they're bottled and when they will reemerge is anyone's guess. When they do though, collectors will be in for a treat as everything is present for the wines to be great in time." The Duband 2015s are almost all very good and several are absolutely first-rate and I would recommend them to you." asting note: (opened from personal storage). This remains quite deeply colored with a still largely primary nose of ripe dark berry pinot fruit, plenty of spice and a hint of sandalwood. There is gorgeous complexity to the still moderately firm, intense and relatively powerful flavors that display striking complexity on the solidly structured but not hard finish that delivers outstanding length. This is turning out to be better than I originally foresaw and I have upgraded my score accordingly. As to drinkability, for my taste this has just now arrived at its peak though it should be capable of holding here for many years to come. Tasted a number of time recently and while I have had largely consistent experiences note there was one bottle that was quite badly reduced while requiring several hours for it to dissipate."

  2. Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Rouge 2015

    Allen Meadows, www.burghound.com, "A fresh, bright and ripe yet cool nose consists mostly of red pinot fruit and soft earth nuances. There is good volume to the round, delicious and appealingly vibrant flavors that terminate in a mildly rustic if persistent finale." "You may remember that when I asked Allen Meadows, aka Burghound, on this video who he thought might be a natural heir to the late great Henri Jayer of Burgundy, one of the two people he cited was young Benjamin Leroux of Domaine Comte Armand."

  3. Principia Altior Pinot Noir 2015

    Peter Bourne, Gourmet Traveller Wine, Jun/July 2017, "Has a fresh, quite complex fragrance of strawberry, rhubarb and stems, even a hint of lemon balm. The palate starts with suppleness and plenty of sweet fruit before a light, herbal grip on the finish. "Raspberry pastilles, white pepper, a whiff of whole bunch smokiness, cinnamon and soy sauce." "This is a fine-boned pinot - complete, linear and long"

  4. Gestalt Woodside Pinot Noir 2016

    What a wine! Some forest floor, sweet earth, briar, elements of cured meats, cherry, sour cherry and charred bbq aromas flow onto the palate. It's primarily savoury with a lick of sweet, polished fruit and forest-floor funk. Excellently balanced and very good value.

  5. Oakridge 864 Willowlake Block A4 Pinot Noir 2015

    95 Points, Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front, "The pinot noir coming out of Oakridge is top notch. There was a time when Oakridge/Dave Bicknell was known as the chardonnay master but it’s fair to say that the mastery has expanded. This release is smoky and sinewy and savoury, first and foremost, but it still shows sweet fruit and sweet spice; it nails both street cred and seduction. It finishes sound, chalky, appealing, persistent. Gorgeousness in a bottle."

  6. Domaine Comte Georges De Vogue Grand Cru Musigny Cuvee Vielles Vignes 2004

    96 Points, Allen Meadows, www.burghound.com, "This is also very cool and even more reserved at present, revealing only reluctant glimpses of very ripe and ultra spicy red and black berry fruit notes that are very pinot in character. The rich, full and powerful flavors are sweet, supple and utterly classy and the intensity this wine displays is seriously impressive and the superbly long and strikingly precise finish is crystalline in its purity and exactness. There is a rigorous element here that suggests this will require the better part of 15 years to be at its best but when it gets there, this is going to be a thrill ride. Readers know that I am not given to undue hyperbole but I love this style of wine as it's at once pure, understated, graceful and utterly composed." "...I can't say enough good things about how good their '04s have turned out. Indeed if an entire group of wines is considered, then the de Vogüé '04s would be on my very, very short list of candidates for wines of the vintage."

  9. Onannon Pinot Noir 2015

    The people behind Onannon are Will Byron, Kaspar Hermann and Sam Middleton. 92 Points, Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front, "Made from grapes grown on both the Bellvale and Lightfoot vineyards in East Gippsland. All clone MV6 and 115. All destemmed. Left on skins for two weeks. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Good decision to de-stem here as the wine has an inherent sappy, sweet-sour tang to it. It feels lifted and lively, pure pinot noir in a way, with cherry and charcuterie characters in fine voice. Spots of graphite and pepper-spice add to a complex show. Should mature well over the medium term too." This is a blend of two vineyards, one from south Gippsland the other from east Gippsland. The majority of the blend 70% is sourced from respected grower and winemaker, John Ellis, in Berry’s Creek, South Gippsland (18 year old vines) This high density vineyard is planted to numerous clones of Pinot Noir. In 2015 we used predominately 114/115 and MV6 Clones. The other vineyard, from which we take the remaining 30% of the blend, is Lightfoot & Sons in East Gippsland (17 years old, MV6) The fruit from both vineyards is 100% destemmed into separate fermenters with minimal SO2. The fruit was cold soaked for 6 days after which time fermentation began. Primary fermentation took 8 days with temperatures reaching 34 degrees. The wine was immediately pressed and settled overnight before being racked to barrels to sit on gross lees. The wine was racked prior to bottling in late December. Unfined and Unfiltered.

  10. Benjamin Leroux Volnay 2015

    Allen Meadows, www.burghound.com, "An attractively layered if not particularly elegant nose offers up pungently earthy aromas of red pinot fruit, violet and game. There is better refinement to the sleek middle weight flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the saline, dusty and well-balanced finale. The contribution of the 1er proportion is evident and overall this is an especially good Volnay villages." "You may remember that when I asked Allen Meadows, aka Burghound, on this video who he thought might be a natural heir to the late great Henri Jayer of Burgundy, one of the two people he cited was young Benjamin Leroux of Domaine Comte Armand."
