Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2020

Pale crimson with a pale rim. Grainy texture and some real depth and energy. Caresses the palate with life... Fruit flavors veer towards blackcurrant, which is unusual for a red burgundy.

Seems a bit more appealing and crisp than the sample tasted at chez Goedhuis. But still a bit appley rather than stony. Good acidity. If I saw this on a not-very-good wine list, I'd be happy to order it.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Domaine 2020

High toned with lots of acidity. A bit more body than the Preuses and impressive green fruit on the finish. A good wine for food whereas the more delicate Preuses could be drunk without food. Juicy. Really gets the saliva flowing!

Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine 2020

Intense nose - more so than the Preuses or Bougros. Solid concentration and obviously a long life with good acidity. A real mouthful in which the fruit just about matches the astringency but it would be a shame to drink it too young...

Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre Domaine 2020

Pretty firm and full on the nose. Needs quite a bit of time. Lots of impacts on the palate with real precision - seems like a well-etched statue. Still youthful but with enough juice and an appetizingly dry finish.

Greenish straw. Introvert nose and strong lime flavours on the palate. Clean, crisp but perhaps a tiny bit broader than absolutely classic Chablis. Still a little bit astringent on the finish.

Grand Cru Chambertin-Clos de Bèze 2020

Mid crimson. Pale rim - paler than one might expect. Subtly, energetic nose. Still quite tannic but with genuinely interesting, complex fruit. Dry finish after a spicy cocktail of fruit. Great drive! It's so accessible it's tempting to drink it now.

Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet 2020

Much more fragile and evanescent than the Corton-Charlemagne. But it certainly builds on the savoury, persistent finish. Certainlyhad admirable presence in the mouth and on the finish.

Grand Cru Corton-Charlemagne Domaine 2020

Light almonds and savoury oak combo. Quite refreshing; this climat seems to have yielded some very good wines in 2020. Long, satin texture. Very caressing on the palate with admirable length. Appetising dry finish.

Bright mid crimson with a pale rim. Slightly vegy top note on very sweet, bitter-cherry palate.
