Re: TN: 2018 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes

I reckon his '18's are every it as good as his '17's Jason. He seemed to pick relatively early and the wines are loaded with chalky dry extract (which I love).

Re: Underrated Burgundy Vintages

In reds '91, '00 and '14. Some journo's seriously under-rated '99 on release, looking at yields and not the wines. This has turned out to be perhaps the greatest red Burg vintage of my lifetime. In whites '00 and then some of the warmer years have been better than expected. '03 can be interesting an...

TN: 2018 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes

Plenty of smoky mineral reduction along with notes of preserved lemon. It is dense and sappy, with good volume and intensity. The finish is loaded with chalk and it has excellent length. Plenty of material here upon which to age.

Re: 2018 Red Burgs - time to crack a few!

I worked through the Forey, Lucien Jacob and Cerberon range of '18's yesterday. The ripeness of the vintage is evident but I really enjoyed the wines. There is flesh and lusciousness and an expressiveness now. I suspect they will be a bit like 2009. Requiring extended bottle age to show their full p...

Most are still far too young Kirk. This DRC was delicious but with still plenty to reveal. Probably the most open-knit '09 GC I have had over the past 12 months is the 2009 Georges Lignier et Fils Clos St. Denis.

Complex aromatics of smoky mineral, citrus blossom, lime and yellow peach. It is full and fleshy, dripping with orchard fruit flavours. It has the perfect amount of sweetness, countered by a line of bright acidity. It is layered and very long.

This is seriously good. Best since the '07 for mine. Delicious berry and cherry fruits. Some Redskin Lolly and plenty of plant matter. It has flesh without excessive weight. It is direct and detailed, with a fine line of minerally acidity. The finish is expansive and long.

Re: Premox in Loire SB (yes, you can age a few)

You have a case of 12 bottles. 2 or three are perfect, 2 or three are completely shot, the rest are dull. The only variable is the cork. The fact that two or three are perfect means that all of the others have oxidised prematurely (premox). The only variable is the cork. It is indeed inconsistent.

Quite a savoury nose, with plenty of earth, some meat and rose petals. There is a core of fresh cherry fruit and excellent intensity of flavour. It builds through the palate, finishing with good mineral cut and really fanning out. An outstanding Village wine.

Re: Is there a "size bonus" in wine scores?

I suspect there is for many reviewers. Size isn't important its how big it is!

It seems that fruit sweetness, or a perception of mid-palate sweetness adds a few points. Dessert wines tend to consistently rate higher than say a deliciously flinty 1er Cru Chablis.
