No slurping or spitting! This is a compendium of wines that, in the main, were really drunk with food, friends and family. These wines were typically drunk at home, or at organised dinners between December 2006 and March 2007. Some wines drunk with their producers are included… Read More

coche-dury, meo-camuzet, romanee-conti

By billn on February 02, 2007 #degustation

Could it be the hyphen in the names? The wines are too expensive – there’s no argument – but they offer the opportunity to deliver something truly sublime. Last night it was multiple Coche and Meo washed down with a bottle of Armand Rousseau. Today it was the 2004 reds… Read More

a game for the next few days

By billn on December 08, 2006 #degustation

I had a very ‘illuminating’ experience yesterday; 15 wines, many were grand crus and served in flights of three – but served blind – their identities were only revealed at the end, though we had the list upfront. 2004 Denis Bachelet, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Les Corbeaux 2004 Ponsot, Chapelle-Chambertin 2004… Read More

magnum report pt.3

By billn on October 29, 2006 #degustation

The nose is surprisingly meaty and spicy, opening ever-wider and at the same time denser red fruit and a more mineral, cedar note comes through. The palate is very fresh and interesting for a 1997 – no… Read More
