More Burgundy! The Martin Scott tasting was packed. I was hanging with Pascaline, grabbing spit buckets when we could, often resorting to the trash cans, but here's a consensus between the two of us. These below got us smiling. Who said the 2007 Burgundies are underperformers? Not to me, so far. So far I'm seeing, drinkable, forward, and precocious. Full of charm. And what really got me going on them is that quite a few are marked by the most intoxicating mix of jasmine and rose---think Chanel #5, pressed into a white linen handkerchief. Domaine Michel Lafarge 2007 Aligote Raisins Dores I am just crazy about the Lafarge wines these days and this Aligote is not the fierce, edgy monster but more gentle and sunny and chamomile, in stilletos. 2007 Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Chateau des Ducs I never had this Monopole but it rated a big Yum. With a firm, density, dusted with baby powder and rose. Domaine du Comte Armand 2007 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux More baby powder and Chanel #5! Lovely. Domaine Denis Bachelet 2007 Bourgogne Rouge This might land at $35 retail but it's a mouthful of complexity, green walnut (previously known to me as ground ivy) a touch with I just love, keeps it interesting. Domaine Jacques Frederic Mugnier 2007 Clos de la Marechale, George Blanc 1er Cru This is Fred's first vintage of grafted over to chardonnay from the monopole. And it's crazy! Just nuts. Tight, wound up, firm, seashell and a touch of wind. Love this. 2007 Chambolle- Musigny Power and nuance. I just love contradictions in wine. Acidity that grabs your attention and baby powder dusted old Chanel # 5 bottles. Domaine de Montille 2007 Beaune 1er Cru Les Sizies I am not used to de Montille being so understandable at two years old. But this was limpid, transparent, firm and tannic-spiced velvet. Domaine Bonneau du Martray 2007 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru A very structured wine to lay down and slurp up in a few years. Quite closed up, but hardly shy, more like someone who is ready to explode they have so much to say. You'll blow a wad on this one, but it is Corton-Charlie all the way. 2007 D. de Montille Beaune 1er Cru Les Sizies Limpid, transparent, firm, tannic, closed and velvet. Loved this.
