A shame – we need lots of different views…

Now that’s kind of cool! By Fernando Beteta – see here* *Note: Just a small Drion/Drouhin problem with some labels…

(the organic) gevrey wine club…

No afilliation (et-cetera), but this looks potentially quite interesting, and it’s connected to the people who own/run the (very comfortable) Les Deux Chevres hotel in Gevery-Chambertin. http://gevreywineclub.com/

jancis on roy…

Roy Richards has seen it, and done it all – not only was he the first to start selling Comte Liger-Belair, he was even the first to (try to!) import Maison Ilan into the UK market. Here.

a synthesis of le montrachet 2016

 Montrachet – 28-Aug-2016. A really interesting story from Bourgogne Aujourd’hui, yesterday: Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Domaine des Comtes Lafon, Domaine Leflaive, Guy Amiot, Lamy-Pillot and Domaine Fleurot have blended together all of their grapes harvested in Montrachet – or maybe I should say Le Montrachet, as their parcels are all on the Chassagne side. Normally […]

ladies of beaujolais…

Honestly, I dislike positive/negative profiling, so ‘women wine-makers‘ at least as a concept, grouping or genre has always seemed odd to me, because the job-title wine-maker is in itself sexless. I’ll give you that from a historical perspective, women winemakers are clearly in the minority – yet that is also ‘so last century…‘ That said, […]

more sour grapes

Or, more correctly, more on Sour Grapes. Here.

cool…

I have to say, fabulous design and photos. Nothing to do with Burgundy (fortunately!) but even the story is a good one! http://www.lepanmedia.com/cultivating-luxury/

hats, dogs and pruning…

Found. A super (2010) article about Michel Duclos: Does he ever remove his hat? No, he says, never. He shows me his car: The back seat has more hats, in case he feels like a change Margaret Rand / World of Fine Wine

elin’s apocalypse…

Elin predicts the end for burgundy…https://t.co/7QM7waoYS2 — bill nanson (@billnanson) June 28, 2016 A thoughtful article from Elin McCoy, which has many overtones of my own ‘Vuittonification‘ post from last December. Elin has taken a more personal (producer) perspective versus my more structural perspective – but the conclusions are the same. The only things that […]

jefford on clos de tart…

A thoughtful and in-depth article on the Clos de Tart by Andrew Jefford – it only took him 6 months since his tasting in September to publish it – but a welcome addition, nonetheless 😉 http://www.decanter.com/jefford-monday-tasting-history-297081/

don’t miss viewing…

Highly recommended – a super interview of Christophe Roumier by Steve Tanzer: incredible perspective on the recent history of Burgundy from Christophe Roumier and @StephenTanzer1 https://t.co/15IoQitgIx @vinousmedia — Antonio Galloni (@AntonioGalloni) March 17, 2016 I see a few interesting videos here too from Sarah Marsh: Burgundy Briefing: Winners and Losers on the Hill Of Gold.
