New Reference Pages – Segmenting the Region

New page that segments by region the areas that together are called burgundy. Also updated (mainly style-wise) are the following: – Wine Making – A-Z of Appellations – The Map Resource – Weights & Measures – Profiled Producers That’s enough for today! Cheers

New Reference Pages – History

The history page is up and running – more of an almanac really. Am at the same time working on the databse info for the ‘Note Finder’ which should find a lot more than notes! Cheers, Bill

New Reference Pages – Introduction

8th April 2006. A short introduction with a few nice remarks from Neal Martin that I will probably expand at my (occasional) leisure. Cheers

A New Reference

4th April 2006. I noted a problem with the mac browser that my older pages did not display correctly – seemingly not a problem with the index pages, or content pages from the ‘reports’ – but basically all the reference pages were implicated. So this is where I’m starting. The new main reference page is […]

Site Stats Q1 2006

Spring 2006 Report

The Spring Report is finally up and running. A look at ~100 wines from 2004, amongst notes on the DRC 2003’s, a focus on the village of Puligny, likewise a look at the trials and new prospects for Beaujolais and last but not least, a profile of the Clos de Tart and Maison Boisset plus […]

New Format

Burgundy-Report has a new style for the frontpage. A nice update I think vs the older version, of which I was equally proud then! Now must work on some content…

Perfect Picking

We are most of the way through the Côte de Nuits harvest now – let’s say 90% complete – though given a good forecast not everyone is picking just yet. The weather has been great – except for the early morning pickers who get blue fingers due to the cold – the blue skies have […]

Now We Start

The sun is shining and yesterday’s breeze is today’s wind – the flags stand proud. Despite the sun, I didn’t see anybody in the (outdoor) hotel pool this morning – at 10:00am it was still 7°C! At the cuverie everything is ready; the table de trie is waiting, the plastic cases for the grapes stand […]
