Boisset to buy Antonin Rodet (?)

From the Decanter newsfeed: Burgundy-based wine company Boisset is in advanced negotiations with the owners of Antonin Rodet to take over its wine business. This was the talk of town when I was in burgundy in June, I assumed the silence that followed indicated nothing was happening – it looks like maybe the holidays were […]

wine report r.i.p.

wine report r.i.p.

I see from the Decanter newsfeed (‘click’ Decanter News at the top right of this diary page) that the Wine Report of, or rather edited by, Tom Stevenson may be no more. If Dorling Kindersley, that stalwart of (popular) wine publishing is giving up, I find it hard to see how WR may be resurrected. […]

has the world gone mad(?)

Am I the only person in the world that’s totally bemused by this… er… er… tawdry ‘news item’… ‘thing’…(?) [Tell me if you can help with a more appropriate adjective…] “All of us at Matchbet are absolutely delighted to be working with Liv-ex, whose indices are the authoritative source of information about the state of […]

lvmh: -41% profit for wine and spirits

lvmh: -41% profit for wine and spirits

Comparing the first half of 2008 with the same period this year, we can at least deduce that people are not drowning their economic worries in Hennessy, Krug, Moët or Yquem. Apparently LVMH say that their profits increased “tangibly” in the markets where they control their own distribution, such as ‘owned’ shops like Louis Vuitton: […]

trouble at’mill…

With apologies to Lancastrians, Decanter reveals that the producers are revolting… Currently it’s a storm in a teacup; if there are eventually to be vast lakes of Beaujolais sourced Bourgogne Blanc, it will still have to fight with vast lakes of the ‘Real McCoy’ at the supermarket price-points – though perhaps the Beajolais have more […]

vines & wines – yesterday in the côtes

Reaching for the sky...

Back from a sticky 35°C in the Côtes. In the Vines Vine-growth is very speedy at the moment; all the vineyards are looking like they need their first ‘hair-cut’ as the vines start reaching for the sky. The earliest flowering started on Wednesday last week, but more than 95% of the vines have yet to […]
