2004 Boillot Jean-Marc Montagny 1er Cru

Wine Note added June 2006

Pale lemon-yellow. A woody nose at first – takes a little air to bring more balance – and a tight core of mainly pear fruit. The palate fleshes out with aeration – just a little weedy to start. The concentration is backend-loaded providing a very nice finish. Though the fresh… Read in the Note Finder

Puligny-Montrachet: Village Profile

By billn on March 22, 2006 #pages#puligny-montrachet#villages#vprofile

At the core of the white-wine-centric Côte de Beaune are Meursault & Puligny-Montrachet. Sadly for Chassagne-Montrachet and St.Aubin, and despite the quality of their wines – the former’s grand crus included – those two villages are often relegated to the afterthoughts of consumers. Meursault was, for generations, the most sought-after… Read More

Round-up of wines tasted

By billn on October 31, 2005 #pages

No slurping or spitting! No slurping and spitting; these wines were (in the main) really drunk, and mostly at home with food and friends between July 2005 and October 2005. … Corkwatch: 4 from 104 = 3.8% for ‘corked’ – best result for a while, apart from 2 being… Read More

The Class of 2002

By billn on October 31, 2005 #pages#vintage appraisal

The Class of 2002 – Grand Crus White and red, the 2002 vintage was very well-received on release; the wines were judged accessible but not facile, a high average quality was generated – and not only by our usual friends at the better producers. Never being afraid to grasp the… Read More

Roundup of wines tasted

No slurping and spitting; these wines were really drunk and predominantly at home with food and friends between March 2005 and June 2005. I have the feeling that I’ve had too many corked wines recently but the figures are not that much higher than normal – maybe it was… Read More

Random ruminations

By billn on August 01, 2005 #editorials#pages

The Beaune Vignoble looking towards Corton, July 2005 Red Withdrawal #1: It’s over 30°C and it’s hard to open a bottle of red – even one that’s spent a couple of hours in the refridgerator – my normally modest consumption of white is currently ‘immodest’ and being… Read More

1991 Remoissenet Père et Fils Montrachet

Wine Note added June 2005

Golden. Real depth on the nose, but initially it’s a little diffuse – certainly vs the two Domaine Leflaive wines, hints of butterscotch. Where this wine excels is in it’s length, certainly longer than the Leflaive wines, but without their overall class and texture. Still a fantastic wine by ordinary… Read in the Note Finder

Round-up of wines tasted

By billn on March 31, 2005 #pages

No slurping and spitting; these wines were really drunk and predominantly at home with food and friends between November 2004 and March 2005. I started 2005 with a few 1999 Vosne 1ers – usually very good, occasionally fabulous. Plenty of 2002’s that are very nice, but aren’t quite so… Read More
