Beaune Coucheraux Grand Cru 1955 fro Louis Jadot. The wine was very developed, but still had some fruit and body, but it is in serious decline. Difficult to judge a wine like this, but it's still hiding elements of greatness behind the oxidized … [Read more...] about Louis Jadot Beaune Coucheraux 1955

Aux Combottes 1999 from Dujac was a bit disappointing. Dujac made very nice wines in 1999, but this showed very hot tones, i.e. quite heavy sweetness, prunes and tar. No doubt vintage is hot, but I really hop this Dujac wine with cellaring will … [Read more...] about Domaine Dujac Aux Combottes 1999
The Gevrey Chambertin 1996 is a surprisingly good effort from Dennis Mortet. Showed good fruit and nice sweet tones. Mortet was highly extracted in the mid-1990s, but this wine has developed better than expected, and now behaves like a fairly classic … [Read more...] about Dennis Mortet Gevrey Chambertin 1996
This is classic white Burgundy of the best kind. Domaine Leflaive Les Pucelle 1996 (95p), is an outstanding effort. A precise and crisp wine, with the classic 1996 backbone. Great balance, 100% pure and above all a great pleasure to drink. Will … [Read more...] about Domaine Leflaive Les Pucelles 1996
The 1994 Batard Montrachet from Domaine Leflaiveis is a big and heavy wine, in a slightly boring way. Definitely not a bad glass, but unfortunately the vintage, with its lack of freshness and purity, really limits the potential in this wine. Maybe a … [Read more...] about Domaine Leflaive Batard Montrachet 1994
The Chassagne Les Cailles 1989 is a fine effort from Jadot. I have tasted this wine a couple of times before - and I must say it was better a few years ago. It has lost some of it's fruitiness and volume, and while it's still a very nice wine, it … [Read more...] about Louis Jadot Chassagne Les Caillerets 1989
Normally I really like the wines from Philippe Pacalet. But not the Meursault 2003, a typical white 2003 for bad and worse. Sweet and without structure and freshness, frankly, not a pleasure. Only confirms - stay away from the white 2003 Burgundies - … [Read more...] about Philippe Pacalet, Meursault 2003
Arnaud Ente Meursault 2001, a really delightful Meursault. Beautiful fresh acidity structure with a certain oak note, a very good Meusault for the vintage. No hint of premox. A very good effort from Ente. (2012 - 2018) - 89p … [Read more...] about Arnaud Ente Meursault 2001
