As I have nothing useful to say for myself, and my (slowly abating) cold precludes opening bottles – and even worse, no travelling to the Côte d’Or this week – I shall instead scrape around for a few interesting stories for you.
For this site, I’m slowly updating the NoteFinder database. There are today about 50 notes more than last week, and over the next week or so I will be adding ~150 more. I should be close to up-to-date by then.
Looking further afield, I found some articles worth reading:
- “My Beaujolais immersion trip is just about over, and though I have plenty of space in Wednesday’s newspaper to expound on the issues facing Beaujolais and on our wine panel report, I actually have quite a bit more to say.
One technical area I did not address in the articles is how Beaujolais is made. This issue is not only highly intriguing but involves something of a mystery…”
A suite of articles from Eric Asimov
- It might be about Roussillon, but this is a nice article from the Los Angeles Times
- I dislike the title, but Frederic Koeppel has a good piece here
Lastly, let me recommend to you a site which is packed with info despite it’s ‘work in progress’ status. There has been little under this URL for the last months (years), but it seems that Becky has finally ordered her troops (or could it be vice-versa!) into line.
Already a great resource.
