live links – dead links…

If anyone’s having problems – sorry. The whole site was re-linked (with redirections) overnight. The site will be easier to manage but you might experince quite a lot of dead links if you’ve bookmarked any particular pages – just so you know. The NoteFinder is today’s biggest casualty – hopefully back later today… live links [...]

l’arlot 1999 nuits 1er clos des fôrets st.georges

1999 l’Arlot, Nuits St.Georges 1er Clos des Fôrets St.Georges The cork shows sign of some seepage. Medium-plus and quite young in colour. The nose is right from l’Arlot’s more gothic implementation of stems – it’s a bit harsh and imposing, not quite what I’d call perfume – there’s also a strong mineral element that veers [...]

burgundy forum

Burgundy Forum is here. I made a forum – I have to say, it was surprisingly painless to install. What won’t be painless, and will most likely take at least a week of part-time fiddling, will be my attempts to make it look like it fits to the site, rather than some techie add-on. Have [...]

I just checked, but it’s not April 1st. I considered it superfluous before – but let me know – should Burgundy-Report have it’s own forum? On second thoughts I might have to do more work – a lingering death for wine-bulletin boards? Well given the reach of that site, comment will now be all the [...]

paddling…

Like a duck paddling away below the surface I’m trying to give the impression of everything being serene above the waist. The fact is the next Burgundy Report (already the 8th year!) is coming together in a much more orderly/timely fashion than usual – in fact you will only have to wait until the 15th [...]

gevrey clos du chezeaux 2002

2002 Domaine des Chezeaux, Gevrey-Chambertin Clos des Chezeaux Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose has a little depth and intensity, faint herbs and, as the glass drains, lovely piercing red berries – mmmm… It starts a little strident, but 30 minutes from opening there’s a real extra fatness and super acidity that dovetails to a decent [...]
