fooey fuées!


Lots of Chambolle 1er Les Fuées with Jacky Rigaux last night – while the site was looking a bit odd after the server change – if odd for half a day is all I have to put up with, that’s fine!

Back to the Fuées; when I say lots, it was ‘only’ ten wines. If I add a few more it could be the basis of (okay, I’ll say it before you do – the ‘padding’ for) a vineyard profile – hmm – perhaps in the Autumn Burgundy Report, Summer is already booked 😉 Of note, there were 2 wines from the 2004 vintage and let me just say, you didn’t need sight of the label to guess the vintage!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Mugnier’s Fuees had always been a favorite of mine: floral with spine. I’m coveting my last few 96s…

      I’m definitely with you there – it was one of my go-to wines in the 97-2000 vintage period and in my opinion much nicer than his Bonnes-Mares of the same era. I then missed a few vintages because the importer was kicked out and now it’s too expensive. The 07 was very pretty last evening though, if not the best 07… 😉

      I’ll believe you Paul – thousands wouldn’t.

      His Musigny is loaded with the ‘vintage character’, I know, I have 5 more in the cellar and I’m not looking forward to trying one anytime soon!
