    Thanks for the pointer to these very two interesting articles Bill.

    Thought the McInerney piece well written. Agree with the tasting notes of the Boillot Mouchere (assume its a 2007) and the P-Y C-M le Trezin although I’ve only tried the 2008 of the latter thus far.

    Was intrigued to see Andrew Jefford’s reference :-
    “Brian Franklin at Apsley Gorge in warmer eastern Tasmania makes bigger, more statuesque Pinots using rigorously Burgundian techniques”.

    I met Brian briefly one evening in Oct 2008 at the end of my Arlaud vendange on a vist to Philippe Chalopin-Parizot’s (Herve Arlaud is a big mate of P C-P). Nice fella. He was working a stage in Burgundy & I believe imports Charlopin, Chateau de Pommard & Arlaud wines to Tasmania. His Aussie accent & rather fetching white rubber boots (akin to something from a slaughterhouse – he told me they were posh Tasmanian diving boots or something like that !!) stood out amongst the bee hive like activity of the Burgundians.

    Have you tried the Marchand & Burch Pinots Bill – that is ‘the’ Pascal Marchand ?


Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
