LeDomduVin: An excellent start to 2024

An excellent start to 2024

The new year had barely started, yet I was already back to work, opening great bottles of wine on the second day of what seemed to be the beginning of a promising year. 

Dom Perignon 2013

The 2013 vintage is very dry, crisp, and light compared to 2012, which is richer, more full-bodied, and more complex (IMO). On the nose, the 2013 displays white flowers, lemon zest, and stone fruit aromas mingling with light toasted brioche nuances. The palate is light to medium-bodied, well-balanced, fresh, and zesty, with high acidity. It is an excellent champagne as an aperitif with light appetizers and oysters. 

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru “Les Folatieres” 2017

Pierre-Yves Colin and his wife Caroline Morey Premier Cru 'Les Folatières' is typically focused and mineral with nutty and stone fruit overtones. This 2017 vintage is no exception; it possesses excellent minerality and freshness, stone fruit, and zesty flavors flirting with light, oaky, buttery nuances. Nice. 

Château Palmer Margaux 2016

2016 in Bordeaux is a beautiful vintage combining liveliness and richness, generosity, ampleness, and complexity in an exquisite and refined way. This Palmer 2016 is a perfect example of it! It exhibits a deep, dark color. Fresh, fragrant, and inviting, the nose boasts rich and enticing aromas of blackberries mingling with floral and earthy notes. The palate is rich, dense, intense, yet elegant and lively, with a good balance between the ripeness of the fruit, the acidity, and the present yet well-integrated tannins, providing excellent structure and a smooth, almost creamy texture. The long finish immediately calls for another glass. Although it is still young, I highly recommend it as it is incredibly drinkable now. 

Cheers! Santé!
