As we tasted these wines my grin just got wider and wider. Jeremy and the team are very pleased with their 2007s and 2008s and they have every right to be, they are serious kit. Some of these are quite mind-bogglingly good and if you are a lover of fine things you should be going out of your way to score some. This is Bourgogne de chez Bourgogne.
Morey-Saint-Denis Blanc 2007
Very fresh and fruity with a nice roundness to it. Not only pretty but a good drink too.
Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru Monts Luissants Blanc 2007
Richer with a pure, refined lemon fruit. The oak treatment is very sophisticated. I really like it.
Super fruity and fun. Bursting with life. It really charms for a village wine with super fruit and integrated acidity. Lovely.
Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru 2007
Great, complex, ripe fruit on the nose. Really Morey. I love the tannic structure on the palate. Really quite lovely.
Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru aux Combottes 2007
Deep fruit of a dark, seductive nature. Really refined on the palate, silky and super lovely. This will charm for year after year.
Vosne-Romanee Premier Cru Beauxmonts 2007
Exotic and complex. The fruit is incredibly stylish. Let us be honest, the nose is ravishingly beautiful. The palate oozes finesse and the tannic structure is super svelte. Top stuff, to be enjoyed with much chortling.
Vosne-Romanee Premier Cru Malconsorts 2007
Wow, an explosive, exciting array of aromas on the nose. Just great. Great. The palate is really svelte and smooth, with wonderful, soft, ripe tannins and such length. Freaking triple A.
Echezeaux Grand Cru 2007
Again, the nose is out where the big dogs eat! Amazingly stylish and quite exotic. Spicy and exotic on the palate. OK, I really, really love this, but the Malconsorts is a shade better.
Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru 2007
Oh, I love Clos Saint Denis. Scented, soft, sensual nose. This tweaks my nipples (in a nice way, obviously). A soft and beautiful palate. The tannins are lovely. This is Clos Saint Denis++, Dujac++ and freaking quadruple A.
Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2007
Deep and compelling on the nose. Smelling this is a heady, hedonistic experience. Tastes lovely! The CSD might be a personal favourite wine, but I see lovely, compelling beauty in this wine. As I type this up I can still remember how it tasted and I am chortling and rubbing my belly with mirth.
Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru 2001
Lovely, scented character to the nose. The palate is really soft, fruity and charming. Stylish structure. I like this super much.
Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2001
Wow, a powerful, profound but totally beautiful nose. This smells super, super top hole. A really classy, sex-tastic palate. This is a great 2001. I loved these 2001s when I first tried them from cask and they have certainly delivered on that initial promise.
The following wines were all cask samples so not all were easy to taste. Some were amazing, though.
Not showing at its best but seems nice with good concentration.
Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Combottes 2008
Still a bit alive with malo bacteria, quite reduced too. Very quaquaversal. The fruit seemed very nice to me, though.
Vosne-Romanee Premier Cru Malconsorts 2008
Lovely, lovely fruit. Super concentrated. This wine will blow your socks off once it is ready.
Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2008
This is clearly at an awkward stage. The concentration of fruit and earthiness seem good signs, though.
Chambertin Grand Cru 2008
The fruit seems very perfumed and very Gevrey. Again this is at an awkward stage but I was really impressed with its texture.
Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru 2008
Super exotic. Super complex. Wow! Shit-freaking-hot, man. Big, bouncing tits and permissions to mash them. This will be a stratospherically good wine.
