a few weekend bottles – week 40

Why not a run of vintages? 2010 to 2007…

The 2010 Rebourgeon-Mure, Pommard 1er Clos des Charmois was a very tasty wine, with all the delicacy and elegance that 2010 offers, yet it was a little subdued – at least vs others from the vintage at this producer. Tasty enough though.

The 2009 Chandon de Brialles, Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Ile des Vergelesses, hinted to the nose of the 09 Ramonet a couple of days earlier, ripe but, in this case, with only a suggestion of alcohol. The palate unfurls in a classy way and with super texture too. A very tasty baby this wine – very tasty!

The 2008 Paul Pillot, Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles-Vignes (red!) started out a bit spiky – almost a hint sour in the mouth – both me and my partner thought so (lunch), yet in the evening it was much more balanced and tasty. Our palates or oxygenation? Still a good, workmanlike, bottle – just not a great bottle.

The 2007 Fourrier Morey St.Denis Clos Solon Vieilles-Vignes, frankly, performed like it always does; supple, nicely textured wine with layers of flavour. Not even a hint of anything complicated about this vintage chez Fourrier – at least with this wine. Really super – as usual!
