My 2017 White Burgundy report’s not quite ‘publishing ready’ yet, but it will hit the reports page in the next few days. That hasn’t stopped the red report visits, as you can see above, I lost three domaines this week due to timing-belt issues, but I’ve still more visits than ever before – partly the […]

Plenty of tastings this week for the November Burgundy Report, moving ‘fulltime’ onto the mainly red domaines in the Côte de Beaune.

Just in time to get my teeth into the harvest, next week, July’s report is now online – so it’s only a notional ‘holiday’ that there’s no August report 🙂 July marks the first serious tastings of 2017s at a modest number of domaines – but a vintage that largely had very fast malos so […]
