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 Jean Grivot Echézeaux Grand Cru 2017

"A beautifully spicy nose consists primarily of the cool essence of red cherry, currant and lavender. There is a succulent and caressing mouthfeel to the sleek and relatively supple medium weight flavors that possess excellent punch on the lingering and youthfully austere finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. There is a hint of warmth but overall this firm effort remains quite well-balanced." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Pommard “Combes Dessus” Premier Cru 2017

"A more deeply pitched nose combines notes of plum, dark currant, earth and a whiff of the sauvage. Once again there is excellent intensity to the racy but muscular and robust flavors that deliver fine length on the more firmly structured and mildly rustic finish. This too is going to need at least a few years of cellaring to become more civilized as it's tightly wound today." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Volnay “Caillerets” Premier Cru 2017

"A softly spiced nose grudgingly reveals wafting and perfumed aromas of plum liqueur, violet and a hint of sandalwood. The medium weight flavors are not quite as dense as those of the Frémiets but they're finer still with plenty of the hallmark minerality suffusing the classy and impeccably well-balanced finale. This Zen-like effort should be approachable after only 5 to 7 years of cellaring if that's your preference." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Volnay “Clos des Angles” Premier Cru 2017

"There is a touch of herbal tea character to the spice and ultra-fresh red and dark currant scents that include a pretty floral wisp. The mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is completely different as it can be accurately described as one of lace and grace, all wrapped in a nicely complex and lingering finish that flashes just a bit of youthful austerity." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Volnay “Clos des Ducs” Premier Cru 2017

"There is an overt spiciness to the even more restrained nose that blends notes of red cherry, plum, violet, lavender and a whiff of warm earth. The sleek, intense and chiselled middle weight flavors flash ample minerality before terminating in a youthfully austere and wonderfully persistent finish that, like the Caillerets, is impeccably well-balanced. This tautly muscular effort is also youthfully austere and very much built-to-age. In a word, lovely." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Volnay “Frémiets” Premier Cru 2017

"A slightly more deeply pitched nose displays an evident spiciness to the plum, dark raspberry and violet-scented aromas. The highly energetic and intense medium weight flavors offer even more minerality on the well-detailed flavors that possess more depth and a bit more length as well on the firmer finish. This is very Frémiets in character and a wine that should amply reward extended keeping." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
