new report online

By billn on September 17, 2021 #reports

For anyone who may have missed it, there was a new report online yesterday. I hope that all of you subscribers will enjoy it.

In the last few weeks I’ve been turning more and more to the 2020s – another dozen domaines will be online when the harvest is finished and I start the campaign proper looking at the 2020s…

Enjoy!

April 2021’s Burgundy Report

April 2021 Burgundy Report

HERE

Domaines number 299-320 visited since I began my tour of 2019s – though one chose to present their 2018s! In this issue, I visited more new domains (for here) than the older names I caught up with – for instance producers who provided great Petit Chablis or Beaune 1ers wines in my blind-tastings this year, plus a small but welcome diversion in the area of Pouilly-Fuiss茅.

And coming? Look out this time next month for a profile of the Clos des Cortons Faiveley in my May Report – and a tasting, of course! Plus a blind tasting of 2019 Irancy – with one genuinely great wine – three domaines who provided knockout wines also profiled for the first time in Burgundy Report – one of these producers you might know very well from these pages but making wines of a very different colour!

Enjoy!

March 2021 Burgundy Report

HERE

Largely still concentrating on the 2019 vintage, here is an equal mix of domaines that are new here and some more familiar names – if not colours 馃檪

Additionally, you will find an extensive tasting of 2018 Beaune 1er Crus – whites too. As you may see, despite the potential – and in some places actual – excesses of the 2018 vintage, here all is calmer – indeed delicious.

Enjoy!

2019 Beaujolais

The sixth in my series of 2019 Burgundy Reports is now online. To recap:
1. The whites part 1 – M芒connais
2. The whites part 2 – C么te de Beaune
3. The whites part 3 – Chablis
4. The reds part 1 – C么te de Beaune
5. The reds part 2 – C么te de Nuits
6. The reds part 3 – Beaujolais

Now my latest report, covering the reds of 2019 Beaujolais is now online – here. This is Part 3 of my three 2019 Red Burgundy Reports.

This report covers the visits to taste 2019s at domaines #217 – #280 in my campaign of 2019 visits with another 400+ wines tasted. It, naturally, includes both what I like and who I like, and rather than ‘just’ scores, I actually note all the wines worth that are special search to buy!

I hope that you enjoy this in-depth look. I’m now underway in Burgundy again, catching up on some domaines that missed in the last months, and visiting some new names – so new reports will, still mainly be for 2019s – but with a mix of regions, rather than the format as above.

It was 22掳C today – I needed sunscreen for my head when jogging. I also noted lots of police cars stationed in the vineyards of Beaune – no-doubt waiting for unsuspecting victims – out and about after 6pm!!!
