icymi from last week (plus…)


A little too much that’s related to auctions – but such is writing today – I hesitate to include it, as it makes me just an unpaid marketing extension of the wine-pricing bubble… Still, there’s quite an interesting range of things:

  • Honestly, despite doing quite a piece last year (the year before?) on the relative merits of pinot or gamay rosés, and actually enjoying the wines very much, it seems they are also quite forgettable, hence, I forget them! Some reading here though.
  • (Auction-related) An interview with Emmanuel Rouget. He doesn’t give many interviews as he’s a private individual, so it’s a shame that this is largely just sales puff, material for marketing the upcoming Henri Jayer auction – but I do plan to visit the auction to get an idea of the event…
  • A long but interesting piece in, of all places, the Guardian newspaper, asking ‘Has wine gone bad?
  • White Burgundies worth waiting for? From Jancis. Much more on that from me in the April Burgundy Report – online in the next couple of days…
  • (Auction-related) Ponsot and Méo now in the big-time?
  • Chardonnay Rosé – anybody?
  • (Auction-related) Dream burgundy? More interesting for me is that Hong Kong seems to be the location du jour for expensive sales and that so much of the top wines end up there today – 15 years ago it was such a tiny market. Probably, and unfortunately for the wine in question, a large percentage of that wine has travelled the world, chasing the most speculative prices…
  • 89 is a tombstone score
