DSC05884The December 2014 issue of Burgundy-Report Extra!

This is the last Burgundy Report of 2014 and it focuses on the 2013 offerings from a handful of ‘Grandes Maisons.’

When I look at the quality and also the quantity of ‘highly recommended’ wines in these reports, I can only shake my head at the some of the ‘highly irregular’ ‘early drinking’ ‘high acid’ ‘modest vintage’ reports that I’ve had the misfortune to read. Of-course, I’ve only tasted from barrel since the 1996s – so what do I know. It is also worth noting that the wines are apparently ‘putting on weight’ – some tasted in October and then again in December are now showing ever better!
