A lucky selection – and that was just the house wines for the weekend!

2010 Buisson-Charles, Bourgogne Pinot Noir
Medium, medium-pale colour. Pretty, if modest red fruit aromas. Here is a slightly sweet and completely delicious wine – very modest weight and intensity, but it does what it does, excellently!
Rebuy – Yes

2008, Joseph Roty, Gevrey-Chambertin La Brunelle
Medium-plus colour. A dark-fruited, faintly spiced but rather exciting nose. Lovely acidity – not a bit sharp, but fine, precise and intense. Really lovely flavour and no over barrel influence. Another simply delicious wine!
Rebuy – Yes

1993 Jayer-Gilles, Nuits St.Georegs Les Hautes Poirets
Medium-plus colour. The cork doesn’t smell nice, but the wine smells dreamy! A little dark, decayed oak stays around for only about 5 minutes, followed by deep roasted red fruit – but it changes further – the fruit aromas become ever-more precise and detailed – beautiful stuff! In the mouth there’s width, weight and pretty fruit and sweet, old, old oak underneath. Lovely freshness, complexity and vitality too. A wine to savour – really super-yum!
Rebuy – Yes
