my updated burgundy vintage charts – v.1.8

Updated to include, among other things, my early thoughts on the 2016s. Here. The ‘other things’ include: Tada! Chablis! Tada! Beaujolais! A small increase in the average score for 2004 reds – rare bottles of-course 🙂 Increasing the number of ‘red flagged’ white vintages in the Côte d’Or – i.e. ones to drink up to […]

4 million…

4 million…

I’ve only just noticed that, last week, Burgundy Report passed the 4 million visitors milestone. And that’s only since I changed the site software – sometime in 2006 – not since the beginning of the site in 2002. I’d celebrate with a drink – but it’s breakfast time – later… 🙂

  My third Côte d’Or report is now online. Altogether the ‘whites,’ ‘reds’ and ‘grands maisons’ issues include commentary about 2016 and 2015 from over 80 producers and 1,300 wines.

vintage chart update – v1.60

I’ve finally got an update for my vintage chart, including the 2014 vintage for the first time – amazing what you can get done when the harvest is a little later – though I know that I’ll pay for it when I’m supposed to be visiting producers, but haven’t yet finished sorting grapes 😉 My […]

new burgundy report(s)

So the April and May reports were all about Beaujolais – lots of domaines visited, wines tasted – and blind too – about 650 bottles of them. Now the June report is also online with an interesting selection of themes, including a pinot vs gamay rosé face-off, plus other interesting (for me!) looks at vineyards, […]
