Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2017

'A much more floral-inflected nose is equally fresh and ripe with a broader range of spice elements adding breadth to the pretty red and blue pinot fruit aromas that are trimmed in noticeable if not invasive wood. The caressing and wonderfully vibrant medium-bodied flavors possess better mid-palate density before concluding in a lingering, balanced and much more complex finale. I like the focused drive of the finish; indeed this could aptly be described as a wine that delivers power without weight. I would further note that the 2017 is a relatively elegant example and, like the La Forge, a wine that could be approached on the earlier side, which is to say after 7 to 8 years." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2017

"Discreet wood is present on the ultra-fresh and incredibly spicy though even more restrained nose that reflects notes of red berries, the sauvage, earth, floral and exotic tea wisps. The gorgeous mouthfeel of the imposingly constituted and admirably concentrated flavors is one of contrasts as the mid-palate is quite supple yet the powerful, driving, austere and muscular finish is robust, serious and austere. This almost painfully intense wine is jaw droppingly good and somewhat curiously relative to how the Chambertin and the Clos de Bèze typically show at this stage, the Chambertin is the flashier of the two. We'll see in time though as it's usually the Chambertin that goes into a shell only to emerge 20+ years later. Be that as it may, today this is a genuine 'wow' wine." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Beaune “Les Sizies” Premier Cru 2017

R850.00 inc. VAT
"An agreeably free and pure nose reflects notes of violet, plum and dark raspberry along with a whiff of newly turned earth. There is good richness to the generously proportioned middle weight flavors that evidence a subtle minerality on the clean, dusty and sneaky long finish. This moderately firm effort will need at least a few years to unwind but 8 to 10 years should be sufficient to see it at its best." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Nuits St. Georges “Aux Saints Juliens” Village 2017

R875.00 inc. VAT
"A markedly floral nose is comprised by notes of herbal tea, various dark berries and earth nuances. There is both good intensity and detail on the mildly rustic, complex and lingering finish. This is quite good for a Nuits villages and worth checking out." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Pommard “Les Cras” Village 2017

R875.00 inc. VAT
"Moderate reduction is enough to mask the underlying fruit at present. Otherwise there is good density and punch to the sappy medium-bodied flavors that exhibit fine length on the rustic but not particularly austere finale. A quality Pommard villages that is firm but not so much so that it couldn't be enjoyed relatively young." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay “En Champans” Premier Cru 2017

R1,850.01 inc. VAT
"A much earthier mix of red and dark currant, violet and discreet herbal tea nuances slides into the supple lighter weight flavors that are a bit more elegant than usual, all wrapped in a nicely complex and persistent finish. This is certainly good but 2017 is not a great vintage for this wine." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay “La Carelle Sous Chapelle” Premier Cru 2017

R1,395.00 inc. VAT
"A deft touch of wood sets off the bright red fruit, lavender and discreet spice-inflected aromas. The sleek, elegant and well-detailed middle weight flavors possess a refined mouth feel before concluding in a more obviously mineral-driven finish that has just a touch of youthful austerity to it. This lacy effort is lovely and very Volnay in character." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin “Mes Cinq Terroirs” Village 2017

"Once again there is a discreet but not invisible touch of wood framing the notably earthier and more deeply pitched aromas of both red and dark currant and forest floor nuances. There is fine intensity and solid concentration to the vibrant middle weight flavors that reflect ample minerality, all wrapped in a focused, complex and lengthy finish that flashes unusually good power for a villages level wine. As it usually is, this is a fine effort and well worth considering." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Duroché Gevrey-Chambertin Village 2017

"Reduction and wood make for a pungent introduction to the bigger and richer medium-bodied flavors that are not particularly complex but they are refreshing and persistent. If more depth develops with a few years of bottle age this should merit the upper end of my projected range." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin “Combe Aux Moines” Premier Cru 2017

"A brooding nose consists of essence of plum and black cherry scents that are cut with notes of warm earth and the sauvage. The rich, medium-bodied and reasonably concentrated flavors possess good power and muscle on the mouth coating and serious finale. This well made and youthfully austere effort will need at least 5 to 7 years first and potentially reward up to 15." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
