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 […]

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 […]

I decided to buy the last bottles at the shop before publishing this, shame there were only 2 left! If I were you I wouldn’t believe the winesearcher result for switzerland for the next few days This wine is not yet the ‘full package’, but in terms of aroma and texture, coupled to no flaws, […]

2002 La Pousse d’Or, Volnay 1er Clos des 60 Ouvrées Medium, medium-plus colour but quite an amber caste – I wonder how this has been stored. The fruit has a pronounced jammy aroma and some dried cranberry, eventually widening to give a dark cherry and some dark minerality at the core. Sweet in the mouth […]

Well, it’s not Musigny Vieilles Vignes, but it is very drinkable… 2006 David Clark, Bourgogne Au Pelson Medium-plus cherry-red colour. The nose has dark flashes of oak, suggestions but never any hard evidence of reduction and a very nice brambly dark fruit. Intense, very good fruit and a good villages-level of depth and complexity. Mouth-watering […]

1997 Comte Georges de Vogüé, Musigny Vieilles Vignes Do you ever find yourself trying to find an excuse to drink a corked wine? Initial cost of purchase may have had something to do with it. I have to say that for about 3 or 4 minutes I’d convinced myself that if I swirled the glass […]

So what to do while watching all the visitors (5,450 during the day though only 3,600 unique…) pile into the Spring report. Something modest, but very tasty methinks… 2005 Albert Bichot, Nuits St.Georges Medium, medium-plus cherry-red colour – it still looks a baby. The nose is a little tight but still manages to round-out the […]

Just a short not to say that the Spring 2010 Burgundy Report (already the 8th!) will be up-and-running tomorrow. Well in excess of 300 notes from real bottles, interspersed with stunning (i.e. not written by me!) articles – coming soon! I have only one complaint related to this wine – why do Jadot say Theurons, […]

En Bollery is immediately opposite the Clos Vougeot in Flagey-Echézaux so only the road separates it from being a grand cru – yet it doesn’t even have a Bourgogne classification. The sections on either side of it, in Vougeot and Vosne are both classified as Bourgogne! What were the people in Flagey up to…? 2006 […]

2001 Henri Boillot, Corton-Charlemagne My last two bottles showed a hint of oxidation, so here’s the last one of six. Medium gold – it seemed lighter on pouring. The nose has no obvious oxidation, rather caramel and toffee over sweet fruit. Soft textured with understated acidity. Versus its youth there’s an understated intensity and equally […]

1995 Jean-Marc Boillot, Pommard 1er Les Jarollières The last bottle of this didn’t show brilliantly, hopefully this does a little better. The colour has a much older, browner caste than I expect for a ’95. The aromas are not promising; quite beefy and hint bretty – I’m not really looking forward to putting it in […]

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 […]

are paywalls the way of the future?

I’ve been following the debate about ‘paywalls’; the knight on a white charger (for the newspaper-centric generation/workers) seems to be Rupert Murdoch who’s British titles the Times and Sunday Times will, in June, be put behind a paywall, joining his business title, the Wall Street Journal, which has operated for a while in such a […]

For the 6 or 7 years I’ve been drinking this, it’s been super – this half bottle is not quite to the previous standard – on a down-slope? I suppose I will have to re-check – also the Longerois too. 1998 Bruno Clair, Marsannay Les Grasses Têtes Half bottle, plenty of dark sediment adheres to […]

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 […]
