chablis winemakers visited in week 4 2019

Update 28.1.2019(26.1.2019)billn

More 2017 white burgundy – this from the last of my three weeks in Chablis this year – #Burgundyweek3 already.

I’ve visited Chablis to make broad tastings since the 2012 vintage, usually for 3 weeks in January – last week was the first time that I managed to see some real snow in all that time – usually the snow comes later (if it comes at all) like in March last year. So now I’ve amassed 62 domaines in Chablis and will publish the report in 3 weeks – probably 17 February 2019. That amounts to over 2,400 wines from 2017 before February’s, now traditional, 3 weeks in Beaujolais. I’m expecting March to be a mix of additional new names from Chablis and rounding up some other domaines that I missed in the Côte d’Or.

For subscribers that need specific info now re any of the Chablis producers above – send me note – and for those with a wider interest, I’ve already visited over 170 domaines, writing about how each one of them sees their 2018 and 2017 vintages, and have amassed about 2,400 notes on 2017 burgundy:

A Burgundy Report EXTRA! subscription costs 85 Swiss Francs per year.

And a few pics from last week – mainly taken in a 10 minmute window where there was actually some blue sky!

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

    I still don’t understand why we are not allowed to be informed of who we are seing on the pictures?

      Dear Lars
      Sorry but I don’t understand – as a subscriber you will have everything when the report is published – in another 3 weeks…
      A single image (composite/collage) doesn’t offer me the possibility of tagging with each individual name, at least not associated only to their image…
      If you have read previous Chablis reports, then you may recognise many of the people anyway.
