  • Hospices de Beaune 2018 November 23rd, 2018

    Records tumbled at last Sunday’s Hospices de Beaune 2018 wine auction, with just over €14m of 2018 Burgundy passing under the hammer – money which will be used to fund the Hospital and its associated good works in the months and years to come. ‘Great Wines for a Great Cause’ is the motto. Prices reached…

    • HOSPICES DE BEAUNE 2018 November 1st, 2018

      The Hospices de Beaune Auction is coming up on the 3rd Sunday of November as ever, which falls on the 18th this year. I have just spent a fascinating long week in Asia – every day a new city – and it is clear there is going to be a great deal of interest. I…

The fame of the domaines has put these…

          • TASTING 2017 November 1st, 2018

            First we are all caught up in the current harvest, then everybody’s attention turns to tasting the previous vintage in barrel, ready for the flurry of Opening Offers in January. It is a tough call to cram in tastings at all the key domaines while sniffing out some new names, in the two short (or…

            • THE 2018 HARVEST November 1st, 2018

              Certain vintages get a reputation for greatness almost before they are picked and 2018 looks like joining that elite group. The frost risk was minimal after two tricky years, though a deluge of rain in the spring caused worries in the first part of the season. However apart from a few storms in the first…
