Of-course the 2017 harvest, observations and some hints to what we might be tasting (and buying) in another 12-15 months are centre-stage.
With vintages ending in a ‘7’ in mind, a look at some ‘executive wines’ from the 1997 vintage – 20 years on. Even in a modest vintage, such things are only borderline ‘ready’ after 20 years.
Lastly a tour of Saint-Véran, it’s beautiful countryside and vineyard-scape – plus of-course one or two (88!) wines tasted.
