Chavy Chouet Meursault Clos des Corvees de Citeau 2015

‚ÄčChavy-Chouet Meursault Clos des Corvees de Citeaux is 100 percent Chardonnay

"Clos des Corvees de Citeaux" is a monopole.
Aged in new oak barrels (Allier).  A powerful and elegant white Burgundy; expressive, fresh and fruity with intense and strong flavors.

The Clos des Corvees de Citeaux is a vineyard located in Meursault. It was part of the appellation of l'Ormeau; 0.96 hectares which was an old property of the Cistercian monks who made a two metre wall around the vines, consequently it's a hot place on a summer afternoon – one of the earliest ripening plots in Meursault.

Chavy Chouet Puligny Montrachet Les Enseigneres 2015

Chavy Chouet Puligny Montrachet Les Enseigneres is 100 percent Chardonnay

100% Chardonnay, aged in 100% new French oak, displaying delightful, crisp, mineral aromas intertwined with toasty and vanilla notes. The result is a well balanced and harmonious Puligny of great finesse.

Aged in 100% New French oak

Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Rouge La Taupe 2015

Chavy-Chouet Dom Bourg Rouge La Taupe is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.

The wine is juicy with a great mouth-feel. Cherry and fig aromas, with candied cherry flavors as well as strawberry, raspberry and hints of spice. Structured with good length. Finish is ripe a rich with a bigger body than expected.

Chavy Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Femelottes 2015

Somewhat seductive, like the wine maker himself, this is a charming, rich, focused and delightful white. The wine has a fresh backbone of acidity, clean flavors, and an excellent balance. A most refreshing quaff and one that is great value.

The grapes from this wine are grown from the Puligny-Montrachet area. (either outside of the AOC limit or with younger vines).

Aged in 2-3 year old barrels.

Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Les Saussots 2015

A medium yellow straw color in the glass. On the nose, you will find layers aromas of cured lemon and hints of coconut and mango. On the palate, the juice has clean flavor, fresh acidity, and excellent balance. Vanilla notes follow through to the slightly creamy finish. 

 

Drink this one now or over the next 3 to 4 years.

2004 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac Cuvee de la Reine des Bois

Another wine that checks in near the top of the vintage, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is still a baby, with medium to full-bodied richness, fine tannin and loads of blackcurrant, lead pencil, licorice and spice-driven aromas and flavors. Give it another couple of years and drink it through 2024. 

As I wrote in the intro for this domaine last year, Domaine de la Mordoree is a reference point estate for Chateauneuf du Pape. Run by the talented brother duo of Fabrice and Christophe Delorme, with Christophe making the wines, they produce a relatively modern-styled Chateauneuf, as well as more than noteworthy Liracs and Tavels. For this tasting at the domaine (I was also able to taste through this full lineup again, from bottles in the U.S.), we started with the older vintages and worked toward the more current releases. In addition to their Reine des Bois cuvee, the Delorme brothers also release a special cuvee call the Cuvee de la Plume du Peintre. It’s made only in top vintages, and, as of today, it’s only been made in 2003 and 2005. There’s a scant 150 cases of each. Coming from a plot of 80-year-old vines located in the famed La Crau lieu-dit, the blend has changed between the two releases, as has the elevage.-94 Point Parker

1994 Alvaro Palacios Finca Dofi

The superb, backward 1994 Clos Dofi requires 3-5 years of cellaring. The color is a dense saturated purple, and the nose offers up black currant, raspberry, and kirsch aromas intermixed with vanillin and minerals. Tannic and medium-bodied, with exquisite ripeness and overall equilibrium, this powerful wine should be at its best between 2002-2016. -95 Robert Parker

1991 Domaine du Monteillet St. Joseph

Domaine du Monteillet has made quite a first impression! The1991 Rhene Valley vintage was strongest in Condrieu and Cote Rotie, but this wine is a candidate for the best 1991 from St.-Joseph. New oak was not employed, so you can imagine the richness of the peppery, black currant-flavored Syrah fruit in this wine. There is a deep, viscous texture, sweet, chewy flavors, and gobs of fruit in the finish. Anticipated maturity: now-2004. Last tasted 9/95.-Parker 90 Points
