3 Burgundies: JP Brun, Carillon and Serafin

  • 2001 Serafin Père et Fils Bourgogne - France, Burgundy, Bourgogne (8/3/2012)
    This is the third bottle I have tasted over two months but the first time paired directly with food. The other occasions were during a tasting and the second time with cheese. The pairing slightly overshadowed the wine, duck leg over a barley porcini pilaf with pan dripping gravy. This wine is drinking well and showing its age nicely. Secondary notes of brambly earth, leather and dried fruit is complimented by tea-like tannins. Still some liveliness on the back-end but this should be consumed in the immediacy. Shows nice 2001 qualities and very good for a mere bourgogne. B+/A- though leaning more to the A- given pedigree.
  • 2006 Louis Carillon Puligny-Montrachet - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet (8/3/2012)
    Quite elegant with many layers of flavors. The richness of the orchard fruit is cut by a marked minerality on the palate. Expansive with a nutty, walnut quality to the finish (not premoxed). Extremely long finish of rich fruit, cocnut, walnut and white rock notes. Drank over two days. B+/A-
  • 2009 Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun) Pinot Noir Bourgogne - France, Burgundy, Bourgogne (8/3/2012)
    One the first day the nose was fairly shut down but started to open up on day two showing nice pinot fruit. On the palate not too tart with some nice tannin and cherry fruit balance. This was not really showing its stuff other than the nice structure and obvious future ahead of it. B
