this weekend’s wines…

By billn on February 10, 2020 #degustation

Saturday – a nice day for a walk with a borrowed dog! A modest ‘effort’ at the weekend – just enough to keep from a dry palate! 2016 Jean-Marc Pillot, Montagny 1er Les Gouresses After more than 650 Chablis in January, this nose shows an… Read More

a couple of weekend wines, week 47 2019

By billn on November 26, 2019 #degustation

Hmm – week 47 – there’s not many weeks left this year! Two similarly priced wines – similarly good too: 2016 Jean-Marc Pillot, Montagny 1er Les Gouresses Such a vibrant and perfumed nose of sweet citrus and faint minerality. A punch of freshness, complexity and energy. Yes!… Read More

Before the arrival of the 2014 vintage, 2007 was my gold-standard, my reference point for what whites could deliver – but not at all levels! The issue with 2007 was the with the lower appellation wines – many were too acidic – very drinkable and fresh on release, but they… Read More

big weekend, week 9 2017

By billn on March 05, 2017 #degustation

All the wines were tasted blind and then the label shown before the next wine. The last white and the reds with dinner – a nice salad, blanquette de veaux, pears in burgundy wine, cheese… 2014 Céline et Frédéric Gueguen, Côteaux Bourguignone Sacy A super saline, faintly… Read More
