A few things I’ve read in the last days:
- Opinion: We all need to get over our Burgundy obsession. Now.
- The financial risks of chasing scarce Burgundy wines
You need a subscription as well as deep pockets for this – but I’m sure the Jayer buyers are not even a little interested in the concept of ‘low liquidity‘ – bizarre at it sounds in the context of wine!
- Clonal selection to blame for premox, says Laroche winemaker
Of-course that’s a bullshit headline from the team at DB – clonal selection potentially being a contributing factor, as opposed to being singled out for a stupid headline. There is much to debate here though – I’m one of Grégory’s biggest fans – he makes stunning Chablis at Laroche and I love his personal label for Irancy – but that doesn’t mean we have to agree on everything – we sit in completely different camps when it comes to DIAM for instance. Thought provoking quotes, nonetheless…
