my week (so far)…


This week is a great mix; yesterday les Aligoteurs were showing their wares in Flagey-Echézeaux – almost 50 domaines – I’m ashamed to say that I only tasted the wines of 27 domaines – but that was already nearly 4 hours and almost 80 wines worth – after which my palate said ‘STOP!’ Seemingly there had been too much talking! The weather was cooler and quite wet – the 16°C was actually perfect for tasting aligoté in tents though – it would have been much too warm over the weekend!

Today and tomorrow it’s Gevrey-Chambertin – continuing my Latricières-Chambertin quest for the April report – getting closer to 50 different Latricières tasted! Thursday sees a dip into Mâcon territory and then Friday an excursion to Chablis. The weather is a little cooler – about 20°C but the sun is still shining, as you can see from the images…

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