last week’s wines…

By billn on February 08, 2017 #degustation

A nice mix of bottles, drunk the week before I went to Beaujolais: 2013 Clothilde Davenne, Chablis Bougros What a lovely, lovely wine. None of the overt botrytis apricot and fast development of a lot of Chablis in 2013 – yet – this was open and frankly… Read More

two mid-week tipples…

By billn on September 07, 2016 #degustation

Two worthy wines, one of which offered much more pizzazz… 2011 Nicolas Rossignol, Volnay 1er Roncerets There’s just a trace of oak on both the nose and flavours to this wine – nothing overdone, it’s just a faint accent. The wine itself is much more subdued than all… Read More

Volnay: Village Profile

By billn on May 23, 2016 #br extra!#pages#villages#volnay#vprofile

Saturday, with more Gueguen 2014 Chablis as the chaser 😉 2011 Nicolas Rossignol, Volnay 1er Les Santenots Santenots can be a big, meaty, concentrated and tannic. This is a pussycat – round, open, layered and very, very tasty… Read More

The first spray in Beaune… I was shaking my head watching a tractor deliver it’s treatment in the vines yesterday – or not deliver as it turned out. A reasonably strong wind was sweeping across the vines, and with it, their treatment was swept away. Not just a… Read More

a weekend selection…

By billn on February 17, 2015 #degustation

A fine selection from the cellar this weekend. One of my favourite 2011s from Nicolas Rossignol – no-wonder his twitter ‘handle’ is ronceret! The Grands-Echézeaux is the 2005 – the purchased fruit of domaine René Engel – the last grapes that he tended – a very primary baby but with… Read More
