Result list for “Perrot-Minot” (38 entries)

2004 Liger-Belair Thibault Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées

Wine Note added July 2010

A négoce wine. The last time I had this there was a strong vintage character and here it is today too – a little stronger than the Perrot-Minot, let’s say at a 7/10 intensity. In the mouth there seems to be both a good balance and good freshness, in particular… Read in the Note Finder

Vosne-Romanée: 2007’s in Bottle

By billn on March 27, 2009 #pages#villages#vosne-romanée

This is something of a holy place for wine-lovers around the world. What do these thousands of tourists who travel along the Grands Crus route every year come to see? Romanée-Conti of course! Fewer than 2 hectares of vines produce barely 6,000 – 7,000 bottles of the most prestigious… Read More

By billn on December 08, 2008 #pages

112 wines from the 2006 vintage tasted over 8 days, plus one interloping 2005 – 80% were poured by their makers. Clearly for the vast majority of these I did not drink the whole bottle, otherwise the powers that be would have already rejected the need for a pointless… Read More

2004 à la coccinelle

By billn on December 01, 2008 #pages

I think I was possibly the first to publicly raise and discuss the ‘vintage character’ of 2004 reds – anecdotally whites are also affected – Christophe Roumier is one who says this – but I’ve not experienced any obvious examples, so from here-on, red it is…… Read More

Gevrey-Chambertin: the 2005 grand crus

By billn on February 28, 2008 #gevrey-chambertin

Vienna. It’s only when you look closely at the map that you realise how far east Vienna is; it’s only an hour and a bit on the plane from Zürich, but then that’s an hour east from Paris which is etc., etc.. Vienna also seems underrated as a tourist… Read More

I start 8 days of travel today – Holland: mainly Dutch Siberia (Friesland) with a weekend in Amsterdam – if I’m in your environs (during the week) drop me a line at the usual place. I expect only a smattering of posts in that time. I don’t really… Read More

No pretence about making life easy for you – these wines are listed in exactly the order tasted – but there are plenty of big names! They were not drunk at home, nor were many swallowed, but they were all tasted in a 2 hour period together with most of… Read More
