A Bourgogne Côte d’Or?

I’ve discussed it before, but this is a new label that you might come across for the first time with the 2017 vintage. People have been proposing this label for almost 20 years but now it’s done – and it’s for both the reds and… Read More

There’s a turn-up – the Summer Issue and its still summer! As you will have noted from last summer’s Beaune-fest, the lack of a paying subscriber ‘model’ for Burgundy Report means that I’m as free as a bird to find out about, and write about, whatever comes into my head… Read More

Trying to fix both that and his cherished camera slowed him down a little, but unbowed, here's the continuation of his story... vendangeurs arrive – herve checks the register early morning morey dawn 27sept early vendange – bourgogne roncevie by rn74 Domaine Arlaud Diary Monday 29th Sept My notes, now, several days later, tell me we did Morey Les Blanchards premier cru this morning and afternoon we did Morey Les Milandes premier cru although has been suggested we did the latter yesterday – your writer now !! By checking the Morey map in Coates latest tome am sure doing ‘Blanchards’ morning was correct – supported by one or two photos taken, including a couple of my fellow vendangeurs (male) pisse dans les vignes !
