weekend stuff – week 8 (already!) 2022

Update 7.3.2022(1.3.2022)billn

A north and south Burgundy hommage this weekend.

2019 Gautheron, Chablis Emeraude
The house wine of 2021 – and this might actually be the last of these 2 six-packs. Delicious wine as for many other tasting notes.
Rebuy – Yes

2018 Alain Geoffroy, Chablis 1er Beauroy
Directly this is a wine that’s showing its silky minerality more in both the aromas and flavours. A little less energy and certainly not the ‘fleshiness’ of the last wine – but more taut and classic. Delicious and always a bargain!
Rebuy – Yes

2021 M&C Lapierre, Le Beaujolais
I obviously had a sub-optimal tasting day when at the domaine a couple of weeks ago, when I decided to buy a 6-pack of this. Today, despite great texture and delicious fruit, there’s a pyrazine note that pervades much. I can still drink it – and even enjoyed that last glasses on days 2 and 3 – but I wouldn’t normally buy with this herbacity.
Rebuy – No

2019 Château Bellevue, Morgon Côte du Py
A little tighter and less effervescent than last year, but what a great wine still! A certain direct style – structural but not hard – as any great Morgon. A great wine for the price
Rebuy – Yes
