2018 Chevallier, Chablis What can I tell you? – another delicious Bourgogne Blanc – actually more like half-price Bourgogne Blanc! Open, tasty, good freshness – even elegance – not the full Chablis experience but a nudge more than the Davenne of the last few days. Elegant and… Read More

weekend wines – week 2 2020

By billn on January 13, 2020 #degustation

2005 Alex Gambal, St.Aubin 1er Les Murgers des Dents du Chien Golden colour though no browning. A perfumed roasted lemon is my first impression, a little spiced too. Time adds faint lanolin to the nose. In the mouth to my surprise, is a lovely sweeping line of… Read More

By billn on June 15, 2018 #br extra!#pages

Tasted at the BIVB Technical Centre in Beaune, 30 May 2018. All the wines were tasted blind, only matching the name to wine a couple of weeks later. An exercise that puts on show my full confidence in the 2016 vintage – the Côte Chalonnaise has fully delivered… Read More

Clos de Vougeot – 2008-1989

By billn on May 02, 2018 #br extra!#pages

The same procedure as each of the last two Grands Jours – the Syndicat of Clos de Vougeot producers pour some more mature bottles. This year there were some super interesting bottles, but they were, sadly, in the minority. Only four of these 18 bottles I would be excited… Read More
