Eli's Table tasting notes

We want to share with you the tasting notes our Sommeliers send to Eli in their daily report. More than academic comments they are candid reactions to the very interesting wines opened at the restaurant.

Enjoy!

2008 Champagne Special Club Gimmonet - Saturday, May 12, 2018
From the moment I opened the bottle it was like a genie waiting to get out of the lamp. White flowers, peaches, tangerines and brioche on the nose. Incredibly balanced and structured. Very neat arrange of colors and textural notes. Super long finish and bright acidity. Beautiful. SR

1990 Richebourg Jean Grivot - Saturday, May 12, 2018
This is exactly why I love Richebourg! So different from the other Grand Cru of Vosne! Much more texture and juice, the herbal component you usually get in the area was definitely present in the wine in a very strong way. The wine was spicy and tough, masculine and rugged. It was a big Jean Grivot's wine that needed all this time to show the subtlety of the terroir; a complex wine that needed and deserved all the attention.KR

2006 Pommard Clos des Epennots Domaine de Courcel - Saturday, May 12, 2018
This wine was very rustic, very old school, but not in a good way. Too shaky, the balance wasn't right. The fruit was aggressive and massive. The earthy side of Pommard was the only one present. The wine was open and ready to drink but waiting might be the best option, time may be of some help. Value is correct and with a meal it would be interesting. I was disappointed with the result.

2005 Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets Lucien Boillot - Friday, May 11, 2018
Interesting to see a great terroir from an old school winemaker. The tannins were tight and aggressive; the fruit was alive and giving. It was a bit shaky. Once decanted, the wine started to show power and balance. KR

2004 Pouilly-Vinzelles Les Quarts Millerandee Bret Brothers - Friday, May 11, 2018
I felt like I was drinking Puligny-Montrachet! Stones, pineapple, honey just taken out of the hive, still vibrant and pure. Ready, drinkable and very, very enjoyable. KR

2004 Charmes Chambertin Arlaud - Friday, May 11, 2018
Just like a red orchid, the nose was wild and perfumed. The wine was very textural and vibrant, full of notes of berries, spices and violets. It was mineral and powerful until the very end. SR

2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Hubert Lignier - Friday, May 11, 2018
It was juicy, robust and charming. Very complete wine, no mistakes, perfectly made. Very Lignier, very Gevrey. I would drink this everyday.
details
2006 Morey St Denis Domaine Arlaud - Friday, May 11, 2018
Beautiful fruit. Almost too charming at the beginning. Not a single taste of oak. Pure texture from Morey. It opened up and became very sexy; it had the amazing crunch that I was waiting for. I had the impression of eating a bunch of fruit that I could of made juice from it. KR
details
2007 Meursault Tessons Pierre Morey - Friday, May 11, 2018
I opened it two and a half hours before our guests drank it. When I poured it we had a ton of acidity, it was showing vivacity and power, the minerality was so strong and so distinctive that we couldn’t think of anything but Meursault. The vintage was showing itself and the bottle didn’t have a single flaw.KR

1997 Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Hubert Lignier: - Friday, May 11, 2018
Very different than the Chambolle Baudes 1997 we had recently. Amazing to see the difference between the terroirs, a real treat, a real experience. In this wine he fruit was deeper and bigger, much darker. Like looking into a tunnel without seeing the end, kind of nasty, almost, little kick of flowers, but once again, he would be a dark rose, voluptuous but arrogant. Likea nice car with a angry driver. Continued to develop aromas again and again. KR
