chablis winemakers visited in week 4 2019

More 2017 white burgundy – this from the last of my three weeks in Chablis this year – #Burgundyweek3 already.

I’ve visited Chablis to make broad tastings since the 2012 vintage, usually for 3 weeks in January – last week was the first time that I managed to see some real snow in all that time – usually the snow comes later (if it comes at all) like in March last year. So now I’ve amassed 62 domaines in Chablis and will publish the report in 3 weeks – probably 17 February 2019. That amounts to over 2,400 wines from 2017 before February’s, now traditional, 3 weeks in Beaujolais. I’m expecting March to be a mix of additional new names from Chablis and rounding up some other domaines that I missed in the Côte d’Or.

For subscribers that need specific info now re any of the Chablis producers above – send me note – and for those with a wider interest, I’ve already visited over 170 domaines, writing about how each one of them sees their 2018 and 2017 vintages, and have amassed about 2,400 notes on 2017 burgundy:

A Burgundy Report EXTRA! subscription costs 85 Swiss Francs per year.

And a few pics from last week – mainly taken in a 10 minmute window where there was actually some blue sky!

    I still don’t understand why we are not allowed to be informed of who we are seing on the pictures?
