oof- what a dinner…

By billn on February 17, 2014 #degustation

Homemade boeuf-bourguignone was on the menu along with a brilliant lineup of wines from me and others – not a bad collection for just four of us! I didn’t make notes during the evening, but did look again at the bottles that remained next day – all still full… Read More

The best of Corton 2009 – Blind!

By billn on December 17, 2013 #pages

I tasted a range of 2009 Corton during the Grand Jours de Bourgogne in early 2012 and I thought it a terrific vintage for the hill; consistent, powerful and yet balanced. Of-course the fruit was a little riper in 2009, but I felt that suited this appellation right… Read More

prince florent de merode 2008 ladoix chaillots

By billn on November 08, 2012 #degustation

Actually, on checking, I’m astounded to see that this cost only £60 for 6 IB when purchased en-primeur (check Howard Ripley on the blue  below). Cheaper, but magnificently better wine, than probably all Bourgognes… 2008 Prince Florent de Merode, Ladoix Les Chaillots… Read More
