#HospicesdeBeaune Asia trip contd. Forbidden City tasting with A Jacquet (r), R Masse (centre) pic.twitter.com/DkfzKSboXh — Anthony Hanson (@ahansonmw) November 10, 2013 With all the reduced yields in Burgundy, I find it more than a hint tawdry that the Christies marketing machine is pushing ever-harder in China to sell the latest Hospices de Beaune auction wines – particularly given that there is so little 2013 wine to sell. Clearly it is an unnecessary expense whilst times are hard for the many Côte de Beaune producers with little or no wine to sell… That said, one assumes that Roland Masse is travelling on Christies’ coin, because this is Christies marketing their latest wine auction, and more particularly their own name (in this ‘potentially golden’ territory), it [....]

seguin-manuel grows…

Domaine Seguin-Manuel gets a toehold in the Côte de Nuits Domaine Seguin-Manuel takes over a 1,8-hectare vineyard in Vosne-Romanée « Aux Communes ». Hand harvested on October 3-4, the grapes coming from these old vines are showing a high quality potential. The estate now covers a total area of 8,5 hectares. Initially located in Savigny-lès-Beaune, Domaine Seguin-Manuel has been farming several new plots in Beaune, Pommard, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet since its acquisition by Thibaut Marion in 2004. In the process of certification, all the vineyards are organically grown. « This new plot in Vosne-Romanée makes it possible for us to get a toehold in an iconic village of the Côte de Nuits. It contributes to the control of our supplies of sought-after appellations wines and [....]

official 2012 burgundy harvest volumes – ouch!

Update time, and oohh! what a lot of typing… Anyway some shocking reading herein when you look at the (lack of!) volumes harvested in 2012 – mainly, but not entirely, in the Côte de Beaune. Unfortunately, my page-width doesn’t allow sight of the 2009 harvest volumes which are generally much higher than those now displayed, and just to note that the 5-year average continues to plummet… Of-course all the figures are quoted courtesy of the BIVB…
