December 3, 2017

Charlopin 2015_after bottling

The Charlopin 2015’s are just bottled… and I couldn’t resist revisiting them since I tasted them in barrel… But it is no big surprise that most of these 2015’s red Burgundy are still painfully closed, but have a huge potential to become a great vintage… patience, patience!!

2015 Gerard Thomas Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chatenière
Very nice nose of mineral and honey, smoke, hint of citrus… Taste is lasersharp citrus, followed by mineral, a hint of honey, yellow apples in the finish. (93 points)

2015 Gerard Thomas Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien
Very cold nose of mineral and citrus, hint of yellow apple … Very high yellow citrus and loads of mineral, dried herbs in the background, this wine is still painfully young but with a lenght of 30 seconds finish, this wine has still a lot of potential ahead!! (92 points)

2013 Domaine Belleville Rully Les Chauchoux
Beautiful nose of ripe strawberries, gamey, cerise rouge griotte, un nez qui “pinote”… Very light, fresh acidity, cerise griotte, nice sappy sweeteness in the finish, great little wine! (91 points)

2014 Domaine Philippe Charlopin Gevrey-Chambertin Cuvée Vieilles Vignes
