2017 Vintage Growing Season

By billn on September 27, 2017 #br extra!#pages

I know that I say this every year(!) but it’s not just about the harvest, there are many factors that can influence a harvest, going right back to the growing season and harvest from the previous year: Autumn 2016. The harvest finished relatively late – for modern times – it… Read More

2017 harvest – 19 september

By billn on September 19, 2017 #vintage 2017

99.9% of the harvesting is now over, only the late finishers of the Côte de Nuits (and maybe Hautes Côtes!) such as Damoy, Ponsot and Grivot seem to be unfinished. Even Marko de Morey finished his harvesting yesterday – surviving a weekend bout of a sore throat and heavy… Read More

2017 harvest – 15 september

By billn on September 15, 2017 #vintage 2017

Nuits St.Georges – almost a double rainbow 5 minutes later… Today was more like April – despite a dry forecast – the showers came blustery and sometimes heavy. There was even hail at lunchtime at Gevrey rail-station – but the localised nature of these squalls seems to have… Read More

2017 harvest – 14 september

By billn on September 14, 2017 #vintage 2017

Nuits’ Clos de l’Arlot , this afternoon… Although I ‘did’ Nuits and Chambolle yesterday, I’m a sucker for a nice view – so today, the team of l’Arlot were at it again, plus more again in the swathe of vines (Premeaux) south of Nuits close to Les St.Georges. Read More

Weekend wines – week 34 2017

By billn on August 29, 2017 #degustation

2010 Nicolas Rossignol, Savigny les Beaune 1er Aux Fourneaux The last Bourgogne was deep and structured with a little oak – yet drank very quickly. This wine simply ticks all the boxes, and the bottle is empty quicker than you expect. Quite a deep colour. The nose is… Read More

weekend wines – week 33 2017

By billn on August 22, 2017 #degustation

Dinner with friends on Friday, so no note-taking, just a ‘hazy’ memory jotted down a couple of days later… The house prosecco got the evening moving before changing gear with Chandon de Briailles’ 2007 Charlemagne which was golden coloured, smelled a little of oak, nuts, honey. The mouth showed… Read More

weekend wines – week 32 2017

By billn on August 14, 2017 #degustation

Three super wines this weekend! 2014 Château Pommard, Pommard Clos Marey-Monge There’s no doubting the ambition here; a new bottle design (shape), and an impressively wide, if Screwpull unfriendly neck, then there’s the new label design. It doesn’t stop there, there’s the oak too: A good depth… Read More

weekend 2, 2017 – a couple of bottles

By billn on January 18, 2017 #degustation

Another quiet weekend, but this time two bottles on song… 2013 Domaine des Chézeaux / Ponsot, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Charmes Always a pain to remove these ‘plastic corks!’ Medium-plus colour in the glass. It smells great – plenty of aromatic volume, depth of fresh, ripe fruit too –… Read More
