updating and a selection of bottles…

david-clark-2008-bourgogneVarious things:

I’ve just done what I suppose will be a roughly annual updating of my Burgundy Vintage Chart, it slightly preempts the Autumn Burgundy Report which should be online by the end of next week (should be!).

As mentioned, you’re having to wait for the Autumn report because I have too many things – I will have to do some culling to make everything fit!

I’ve also updated the cuvée information at the end of the Hospices profile; much had changed since 2005.

The last days have seen some tasty wine, but not in situations for studied note-taking: Friday evening with friends majored on spicy food, so we stayed with white wines; some fizz, an 07 Alsace Riesling GC, Mischief & Mayhem’s 2007 Puligny (which is now singing) and finally Pierre Morey’s 2006 Meursault Perrières whose extra distinguishing features were a touch more silk and extra mid-palate width. The last days have also seen a couple of bottles from Domain David Clark – both 2008 bourgognes – the Passetoutgrains and Bourgogne Au Pelson. It was actually the Passetoutgrains that had a bit more mid-palate guts, the Pelson is an altogether smoother beast. Both very good and rebuys.

As I take stock, I note that from my case of Dublère 08 Bourgogne Blanc (Millerandes) there are only 4 bottles left – lucky I’m back in the Côtes in 10 days!
