Tasting Notes

The Joliet domain is located at the top of Fixin in an ancient estate built by monks in the 12th century. This comes from very old vines of Pinot Noir and shows great elegance.

Staff Pick Notes

Joliet is something of an anomaly: they do a single white and a single red, both from the Clos de la Perrière vineyard in Fixin of which they are the sole proprietors. But as Bruce Lee, my personal friend, once said, "I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times." This is absolutely textbook Côte de Nuits and will satisfy cravings for elegant, earthy Burgundy in the most seasoned of wine geeks. The nose is expressive, with gorgeous Pinot fruit leading into dark underbrush and mint on the finish, and the tannic structure to stand up to food pairing. 2014 is gaining a stellar reputation in the Côtes de Nuits as a vintage that is transparent to terroir, and I am truly blown away by how well this bottle is drinking right now.

Fans of rich, unctuous, and well-oaked Chardonnay will enjoy Chassagne-Montrachet, whose age-worthy offerings offer all the fatness...
