2004 Chateau de Puligny-Montrachet - Meursault
2004 continues to reinforce that the year, while generally bad for reds in Burgundy, was surprisingly good for the whites! Popped and poured. Clear, light yellow color. Apple and pear aromas. A round, fairly juicy wine, but with enough structure and acid to keep its balance.

NV Paul Berthelot - Brut
Surprising to the upside. This bottle was purchased about 10 years ago. Nice light gold color starting to show its age. Well-balanced wine, still with freshness but now also showing some secondary notes of roasted nuts. For me, the bottle was in a great place - not to young and not too old. Still some lift to make it refreshing, but with some age to make it interesting.

2009 A et P de Villaine - Mercurey Les Montots
Popped and poured, and then drank over 2 hours. Medium-plus Burgundy color but with aromas more reminiscent of Beaujolais - very floral and fruity. Red fruit flavors with some sour cherry ... drinking nicely now and a good partner with the Thanksgiving meal of turkey and lots of sides.

2004 Harlan - The Maiden
Opened and double-decanted 3 hours prior to drinking. Very dark red/black color. Nose was a bit unusual - some fruit, but also some vegetal and mint aromas. I found it enjoyable and intriguing, but most of the tasters were not fond of its character. A big wine with some black fruit flavors, but also quite a bit of oak, i.e. vanilla and peppery notes. I actually liked this wine more for its aromas rather than flavors. This wine may get a bit better over next few years, but I don't think by much. I much preferred the 2005 Maiden to this 2004.

2002 Justin - Isosceles
Opened and double-decanted 3 hours prior to drinking. Dark red color. Aromas of red and black fruits with oak / vanilla undertones. Big, juicy wine; quite forward and welcoming! Still many years left to enjoy this wine.
