Volnay 2014 – Nicolas Rossignol

By billn on May 24, 2016 #br extra!#pages

Tasted in Beaune with Nicolas Rossignol, 28 February 2016. Having already tasted the 2014s of Nicolas in November, I’d been hoping to run a small vertical with Nicolas – Roncerets perhaps, as he likes it so much – but he was so ‘up’ on his new wines that he changed… Read More

The 1985s: a modern-day look at 1985 grand crus together with a 2005 selection of Chevalier/Montrachet apetisers… It’s definitely not every year that you get to look back at a properly mature vintage, and in enviable grand cru depth too, but it seems to me that 1985 is worthy of… Read More

By billn on August 14, 2015 #the market

I thought this might be of interest to anyone in Beaune/Burgundy/France – it’s (to my knowledge) Laurent Ponsot’s’ first official ‘outlet.’ Attached to the Hotel de Beaune and the Bistro de l’Hôtel is a wine-shop – largely unremarkable in its first 18 months or-so – save for its… Read More
