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 🙂
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.
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°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!!!
Now my latest report, covering the whites of 2019 Chablis is now online – here. This is Part 3 of my three 2019 White Burgundy Reports.
This report covers the visits to taste 2019s at domaines #151 – #216 in my campaign of 2019 visits. It, naturally, includes both what I like and who I like, and rather than ‘just’ scores, I actually recommends which wines to buy!
I hope that you enjoy this in-depth look. I’m now underway in Beaujolais, also tasting 2019s to start my Red Burgundy Report – Part 3! – 55 producers to visit – so that will then be 270 domains visited to taste their 2019s – of course with more to come before the new wave of 2020s starts in around July or August!
Now my latest report, covering the reds of the Côte de Nuits is now online – here. This is Part 2 of my two 2019 Red Burgundy Reports.
This report covers the visits to taste 2019s at domaines #114 – #150 plus there others visited in July. It, naturally, includes and what and who I like, and rather than ‘just’ scores, actually recommends which wines to buy!
I hope that you enjoy this in-depth look. I’m also underway in Chablis tasting 2019s to start my white Burgundy Report – Part 3! – 44 domaines already visited and another 18 are planned for the last week of January – if I’m allowed to travel – fingers crossed!
Just in case anyone missed it, my Mâconnais 2019 Burgundy Report is online. 26 domaines’ wines and their comments on recent vintages too. There are also a bunch of tasting notes on 2018s as a number of domaines thought it too early to show their 2019s. Does that leave you thirsty for some red(?) If…

From Monday 15th June, the French borders re-opened for ‘aliens’ such as I.
‘Eventually!‘ I hear you say.
I’m in agreement – never has 13 weeks of absence seemed so long! It’s much worse for some of my US colleagues – they haven’t been allowed to return to France since their mutual borders closed in mid-March!
All things considered, I managed to pack in a reasonable schedule into those last two weeks of June: Visits to producers in the Côte d’Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais plus a deeper look into Gevrey 1er cru of the Clos des Issarts and the hot ‘new’ label of Beaujolais-Lantignié.
The report went live – HERE – today. I hope that all you subscribers will enjoy it 🙂
July and some of August is, and will be, Puligny-Montrachet time, with a deeper look at the terroirs of Puligny with the winemakers (mainly) of that village…
