burgundy (the land) is too expensive, so…

…everyone is buying up land in Macon, Beaujolais and even the Jura is becoming fashionable, but methinks Jadot are a little slower than, say, Drouhin in this case. It’s anyway a nice ‘retirement’ project for Jacques!

    Next the Burgundians will be buying Mornington Peninsula vineyards. Longer hang time, cool maritime climate with very low frost risk plus not many hail storms in my 31 years working here. English wine trade says we are too expensive because we are at similar price point to top village burgundy, just that we produce a more consistent product without risk of cork issues. Mmmmm, why do I keep visiting burgundy??

    david, i think we all know that the answer to that is – because you can! half your luck. if you need a ‘proxy’ next visit, im happy to step up to the plate!

    The article looks, err, wrong, in respect of saying Jadot owns Domaine du Duc de Magenta unless I’ve missed something. Whilst Jadot are long time buyers of ‘some’ grapes, or juice, from the domaine I was not aware (Bill ?) that Amelie had sold up and unless that is the case then I’m sure she’ll be surprised to learn she’s no longer the keeper of her husband’s legacy. Correction by the writer/publisher required me thinks.

    Reckon this author’s piece is more informed than Wine Spectator who’s writer needs to do her research properly.

    Disclaimer :- Worked the 2006 vendange with the domaine. Have a high prsonal regard for Amelie MacMahon. Very nice lady & passionate about the family domaine.
