2007 bonneau du martray corton-charlemagne

2007 bonneau du martray corton-charlemagne

2007 Bonneau du Martray, Corton-Charlemagne Very pale yellow colour. Perhaps it was a little cold, but this was very tight to start with. Eventually the nose starts to give up fresh apple fruit backed by cold (trifle) custard. In the mouth this is absolutely linear, firing into an understated but very long finish that has […]

two recent clos from fevre…

With all the bruhaha of p.ox surrounding wines from Fevre in 2002 – typically, a vintage I have something close to 12 bottles of – I suppose that I will have to make those bottles my house wine for 2010, despite strong competition from Gambal’s 2006 Bourgogne! Anyway a 2001 and a 2002 were opened […]

white wines with a red nose…

Impressed with my dexterity in Photoshop? Actually it is just a moody (blurred!) image from my phone… Only a few days after a day-trip to Mürren we find ourselves in Klosters – well it is the season! Mainly blue sky, but getting a little warm with sticky snow by lunchtime – good for delivering the […]

weekend reading…

Something short and interesting: Are you one of the anti-flavour elite? You read it here first, didn’t you 😉 Something a little longer and a little picturesque – longer to download too as it’s 10.3mb – it’s from another place of-course, but then there wouldn’t be room for any of that in Burgundy would there(?)

michel lafarge 1997 volnay 1er

michel lafarge 1997 volnay 1er

What a wine; 3 days, three different results. Drunk over three nights, whilst over-nighting in the refigerator. 1997 Michel Lafarge, Volnay 1er Cru Day 1. Medium rusty-red colour. Despite a certain 1997 ripeness to the fruit aromas, there is something of a cool edge and plenty of herbal notes – overall it’s ruff and gruff […]

favourite olympic pic…

Nice that Whistler now has sunshine to go with the snow, and what a race yesterday! The ladies downhill – carnage – with poor Anja Paerson, unintentionally leaping further than Eddie the Eagle(!) and in the process losing a nailed-down silver medal 🙁 I love this picture of Noelle Barahona of Chile disappearing underneath a […]

2006 alex gambal bourgogne blanc

2006 alex gambal bourgogne blanc

It’s not a proper tasting note I suppose, but I’m sure you’ll get the idea 😉 2006 Alex Gambal, Bourgogne Blanc I might have written elsewhere that there’s a ‘deliciousness’ to chardonnay (sorry white burgundy!) that can really perk you up – particularly if you’re tasting at 9:00am! I recall a tasting about 1 year […]
