I tasted a lot of Beaujolais Blanc last week, and I must say that I feel fortunate to have been tasting this wine from the 2017 vintage – as, all-over Burgundy, the wines are more approachable in this vintage – and for both colours – because of that I found some good ones! But a large proportion of the wines were sealed with Nomacorc and my experience of these has been truly awful – dead wines in less than 1 year kind-of awful. I understand that there may have been some improvements to the ‘current model’ but I still remain quite shocked by the level of use.

They will have to go to some extreme lengths to prove to me that wines sealed this way are something I should buy! I also note, in what seems like a stroke of marketing genius, they are changing the name of their Nomacorc website – – to something that you could never, ever, guess:

    Hate, hate, hate Nomacorc. Worst record of red & white premox EVER!

    Their new sugar cane polymer closure is getting a lot of praise and use from producers on Italy. Not people to rush in either. Perhaps things have changed?

      What is this ‘new’? – nomacorc was always known for their ‘sugar-cane polymer’ as they describe it – I speak as someone who worked in polymer research for very many years…
