grands jours – 1er jour


Most of Beaune decamped to Chablis today – sometimes with blue sky, other times with heavy rain and hail – just like in the Côte de Beaune yesterday.

Two years ago we enjoyed 26°C during this tasting- and the wines quickly became too warm. There was no worry about that today – temperatures were about 10°C. A big thumbs-up for the tasting glasses here – decent sized things from Schott-Zwiesel – I approved! Anyway I sought out a dozen names that I’ve never tasted or visited before, took lunch in Au Fils du Zinc and then tasted some Irancy. A good day. Tomorrow tastings in Santenay and Beaune!

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

    Do you have an estimated publication date for your Chablis book? Will you be telling us who uses oak in which wines?

      I hope the text is complete this year, publishing next. And of-course producers use oak for some cuvées and, of-course, not others… 🙂
