Fleurie Domaine Gilles Gelin 2014 - In the glass, the wine has a limpid, dark crimson color, with flashes of purple-blue. The nose opens quickly with ripe wild blueberries (like the little ones behind the Berkshire house), plump red cherries, and fresh hay. On the palate, the wine is concentrated and harmonious, with deep flavors that echo the nose, and evolve over time to include just-rained-on wet granite and black tea. There is wonderful fresh fruit acidity and mineral richness in the long, satisfying finish.
Bourgogne Hautes Côte de Beaune Domaine Cornu-Camus 2015 - It's a family affair at Domaine Cornu-Camus. Pierre Cornu and Bernadette Camus work with their daughter and son-in-law (both oenologists, as well), to create expressive, estate-bottled Burgundies. The supple and generous 2015 vintage shows deep, dark cherry color, with strawberry preserves and a on the nose and palate. Brilliant with everything from roast chicken to pork tenderloin to filet of beef (and even salmon).
Haardter Vom Gelben Fels Weingut Weegmüller 2014 - In the glass, the Vom gelben Fels 2014 has the color of straw in bright sunlight. Cool Granny Smith apples, fresh ginger, thyme, and persimmon move in and out of the foreground, sometimes alternating with white flowers, rhubarb, Key lime, and verbena. And for a few moments along the way, as it evolves in the glass, the wine smells as if it were somehow delicately seasoned with chervil and sage. On the palate, the broad, generous flavors of white peaches, pineapple core, and liquefied sandstone (?) are buffered by palpable dry extract and pink sea salt minerality. There is plenty of fresh acidity and mineral cut, and the overall impression is fresh, sleek, and malic: a fine dry Riesling for white Burgundy lovers. Drink now – 2020 with fish in sauce, crabmeat, sushi, roasted pork, and charcuterie.
Mâcon-Uchizy Cave Talmard 2016 - First, use a good large glass (this limpid, deep straw gold Chardonnay is Burgundy, after all, and a textbook example of how fine wine evolves after it’s poured). In the glass, the nose unfolds with ripe Baldwin apples, white flowers, and raw honeycomb, sometimes alternating with sweet Asian pears, lemon curd, and wild fennel. On the palate, the wine is ripe, supple, dry, and refreshing, with generous, limestone-infused Chardonnay flavors that echo the nose, and fleeting suggestions of nutmeg, ripe honeydew, and white peaches, all seasoned with mouth watering, salty minerality. The overall impression is one of long, persistent, cool mineral opulence. Drink now – 2022.
