• Côte de Nuits: 2017 Wines Re-Tasted
    August 19th, 2020
    During my various visits to taste the 2018 vintage, a number of producers also showed some or all of their range of 2017s, along with occasional older vintages. This report gathers together these wines in one place, featuring also four domaines whose 2018s I have not yet tasted: Jean-Yves Bizot...

  • 2017, Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Fresh bright red purple, lifted fruit, then real density behind. There is a mineral backbone behind a great weight of fruit, cherry with some succulent strawberry notes. Excellent structure behind, well made.

  • 2017, Echezeaux Grand Cru, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    The holding is En Orveaux and Philippe thinks that wines from anywhere in the Combe d’Orveau area (be it Chambolle, Musigny, Vosne or Echezeaux) has what he calls a confiture de vieux garcon aspect. I take that to mean a jammy style of fruit and perhaps a loss of precision....

  • 2017, Clos St-Denis Grand Cru, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Dense red purple, with a volume of explosive fruit that starts on the nose and surges across the palate, then a trace of youthful bitterness behind. Peonies, velvet dark red fruit, balanced opulence, a very complete mouthful.

  • 2017, Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    One (not new) barrel of 230l from the upper part of Mazis. Glowing crimson, this wine has a weight to it without the extrovert opulence of Charmes, there is more of a mineral content, it is tighter with great density behind.

  • 2017, Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    The year’s supply is housed in one new specially commissioned 260 litre barrel. This is an exemplary Chambertin. Clear bright medium deep red. Stylish and seductive with a sweet raspberry touch, not in your face, not massive but just a superb texture and exceptional length. This is really very fine...

  • 2017, Gevrey-Chambertin Belair 1er Cru, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Mid red colour, the bouquet is a little sombre at first, takes some time to liven up. A little bit on the toasty side though with good volume of red fruit and some length.

  • 2017, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Clear fresh red purple with some lively fruit on the nose. Muscular, there are some tannins from the wine and not the wood, then the more acid based style of the vintage kicks in. A good example.

  • 2017, Bonnes Mares Grand Cru, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    This comes from the white soil sector. Good fresh purple. There is some weight to the nose and some oak but it is a bit timid today. It has some savoury character, good length but not quite the grand cru punch until perhaps the fine long finish.

  • 2017, Morey-St-Denis, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    From Clos Solon, Très Girard and Crais Gillon. Very old vines. Super balance to this. Fills the mouth while retaining purity more than flesh, no sign of the oak, excellent persistence. A really good Morey.

  • 2017, Vosne-Romanée, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    From Les Ormes and Champs Goudin. Dense dark colour with a clear purple rim. Some sense of nobility to the nose. A few violets some lifted fruit, ripe cherry notes as well, medium plus weight and very good length. Does what it says on the tin.

  • 2017, Gevrey-Chambertin “Terres Blanches”, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    This cuvée comes from a variety of lieux-dits in the southern part of the appellation, below the main road. More red than purple in colour, with that savoury raspberry nose which is a classic indicator of Gevrey, good acidity, pure and quite refined with a little hit of oak at...

  • 2017, Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Charlopin’s holding is just below the Clos de la Justice, with similar soil of limestone and sand. Similar in colour to his Terres Blanches but this does have notably more weight of fruit. Philippe notes a bit of iodine on the palate. Tight crisp acidity at the finish.

  • 2017, Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    The grapes come from 3ha from all across the commune, with a minimum 50 years age and an average of 75. Dense purple black with a nose to match. This is a sumptuous Gevrey with dark fruit, almost morello cherry, the oak very well integrated, excellent weight and an excellent...

  • 2017, Gevrey-Chambertin Evocelles, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    One plot with the vines running north-south, and another higher up the slope. The colour is less dense than for his Vieilles Vignes bottling, more barrel toast here, savoury notes, good acidity, I like the way it stretches out behind. Finishes with elegance and without too much oak.

  • 2017, Chambolle-Musigny, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Darkish and slightly sombre colour, with a great weight of fruit on the nose. The oak works well here. More energy on the palate, a little thread of acidity reaching up through the fruit. Not the most elegant of Chambolles - Herbues and Gamaires are not the classiest of terroirs...

  • 2017, Bourgogne Franc de Pied, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Philippe Charlopin has a small plot of ungrafted vines in Marsannay’s Champ Forey vineyard, enough for one (new) barrel. There is indeed some barrel toast showing, perhaps a touch too overtly. Compared to the regular wine, this one has plumper fruit, very juicy, with great balancing acidity. Lovely bouquet returns...

  • 2017, Marsannay Les Echezots, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Deep fresh purple, no sign of the oak on the nose, 10% new, graciously juicy on the palate, with perfumed cherries. Then the oak hits, with a dark toast element. But the fruit is inkily concentrated and persistent. Quite a weighty version of Marsannay from a site slated to be...

  • 2017, Marsannay En Montchenevoy, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    Compared to Les Echezots, there is more limestone here and a cooler site. The style is attractively crisp yet with all the same density as Les Echezots. It displays a brighter cherry fruit with some raspberry notes and a long, balanced finish.

  • 2017, Bourgogne Côte d’Or, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    August 19th, 2020
    The grapes come from below Gevrey-Chambertin in Pressonniers, then En Moutiers above the road in Brochon and a substantial proportion from Marsannay. Crisp fresh red, angular today, not showing quite as well as it had done earlier in the month at the Bourgogne Côte d’Or event in Saulieu.

  • Bourgogne Côte d’Or
    May 23rd, 2019
    2017 – the first vintage of Burgundy’s newest designation, Bourgogne Côte d’Or – just twenty years in the making! The idea is clear enough: whereas the Bourgogne appellation can come from throughout the region, including relatively mass-produced wines, and whereas some sectors such as the Côte Chalonnaise and individual parts...

  • 2015, Bourgogne Rouge, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    April 18th, 2019
    These vineyards are in danger of being promoted to Marsannay though Philippe will probably keep them as Bourgogne Côte d’Or. Still very youthful in colour and the nose is full of red fruit energy. A flamboyant nose, but not over ripe. Poised and balanced in the mouth.

  • 2014, Bourgogne Rouge, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    April 18th, 2019
    Deepish colour throughout, now starting to evolve. The nose is surprisingly tough, though, with some reductive notes as well as starting to age. A bit lean and leathery. Even so, the fruit on the palate still has the unsullied freshness of youth.

  • 2017, Bourgogne Côte d’Or, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    April 18th, 2019
    Bright. Fresh purple. Impressive tension on the nose. Some toast, a liveliness of bouquet which made me think of whole bunch vinification (apparently not). Beautifully juicy on the palate, then a little wave of creamy oak. Give it a year to settle down but very promising.

  • 2017, Bourgogne Côte d’Or, Domaine Charlopin-Parizot
    April 18th, 2019
    A fresh primrose touch to the colour, lively perfume, spring flowers, a little more weight arrives on the palate, plenty of oak but enough tension too. This is complex for this level of appellation.
