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
The Henriot Brut Millisime 1996 is a delicious glass of champagne, more or less ready to enjoy now. Medium body, fine length, good compleksity. Would not keep it for 10 years more - fine. (now - 2017) - 92p … [Read more...] about Champagne Henriot Brüt Millisime 1996
This is a real surprise - Domaine Chapelle, Santenay 1976. Not a great terroir, but this is a really good to very good mature wine. On the very positive side, it's drinking very well, on the downside, the wine does not have complexity, as it's from a … [Read more...] about Domaine Chapelle Santenay 1976
The 35 year old Beaune Teurons 1976 from Leroy was a really fine wine, and most likely just over it's peak. Slightly age dominated nose, but still a vibrant fruit and complexity on the palate. Have tasted this wine approx. 10 years ago, at that time … [Read more...] about Maison Leroy, Beaune Teurons 1976
