2017 White Burgundy Report

By billn on December 05, 2018 #br extra!#pages

Lest we forget, 2017 was a year where French wine production was dominated by frost – by the skin of its teeth the Côte d’Or was mainly spared – there were some low-lying Bourgognes and parts of St.Aubin and St.Romain that froze, but quite unlike the widespread frost of 2016. Read More

2016 White Burgundy Report

By billn on November 22, 2017 #br extra!#pages

​Whilst recent headlines shout that 2017 could be the lowest volume wine harvest in France since 1945, that’s not the case in Burgundy – that’s 2016. The 2016 crop was devastated by frost – a gelée noire or black frost – this is where the vines are frozen overnight… Read More

Just so many wines…

By billn on June 26, 2011 #pages

Here’s a compendium of wines tasted with producers between the 1st December 2010 and the end of March 2011. They are mainly 2009s and 2008s – I tasted lots of 2010s in this period, but far too early to make notes – there’s not much value telling you that Romanée-Conti… Read More

By billn on February 15, 2021

Tasted blind, at the BIVB office in Chablis, 25 January 2021. As always, I find these blind tastings a great source of new names, the aim being to find producers of great wines that I haven’t previously visited – Chablis has been quite a dynamic place in the… Read More

2018 Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaillons*

By billn on June 03, 2020

*Plus some sub-climats of Vaillons. The 2018 vintage across greater Burgundy has provided us with some lovely chardonnay – and in some places, the balance is far more interesting than what was achieved in certain villages for pinot noir. Not all Chablis from the 2018 vintage is classically steely and… Read More

Chablis 2012 – Premier Crus

By billn on April 27, 2014 #br extra!#pages

2012 Chablis 1er Crus, all tasted in Chablis 17th March. The wines are listed in the order of tasting. The overall quality is the best and most consistent that I’ve ever tasted. Many without my extra-special recommendation are also great wines. I like that the wines show an almost phenolic… Read More
