    JMIB Live: Frost Damage 2021
    Event Date: 06/05/2021 DATE RESCHEDULED TO 6th MAY 2021, 6PM UK. The news has been full of the killer frost of 2021 in Burgundy – and indeed the rest of France, and further afield. Having lived through 2016 when the frost induced “disaster” message went out so effectively that it compromised from the start any verdict on the...

  • The Genius of Domaine d’Eugénie
    The Genius of Domaine d’Eugénie
    Event Date: 18/03/2021 Now is the time to discover just how good are the wines made by the team which took over the Domaine Engel vineyards in 2006. Jasper Morris MW will be at Domaine d’Eugénie with the director of Artemis Domaines, Frédéric Engerer, and the winemaker on the ground in Vosne-Romanée, Michel Mallard. The domaine is small...

  • The Charm of Burgundy
    The Charm of Burgundy
    Event Date: 15/03/2021 One of the wonderful features of burgundy is the multiplicity of place names, many of which feature in several different appellations. Theoretically there is a reason behind each name. With this tasting we take a look at the magical name of Charmes which can be found at village, premier cru and grand cru level. Is...

  • Burgundy: Tour de Beaune
    Burgundy: Tour de Beaune
    Event Date: 03/03/2021 Beaune may be the headquarters of the Burgundy wine trade but we often overlook the appellation when making our choices. There are so many great wines to choose from with variations in style depending on location as well as producer style. Join me for a sweep through this under-appreciated appellation and see just how good...

  • Domaine Ponsot – Vertical Tasting
    Domaine Ponsot – Vertical Tasting
    Event Date: 23/02/2021 There is history of innovation here with it being one of the first Domaines to practice estate bottling in the 1930s, and perhaps more significantly the Ponsots were among the first growers to understand the importance of clones and clonal selection – many of the most important Pinot Noir clones originate from their vineyards. The...

  • Gevrey-Chambertin Cazetiers
    Gevrey-Chambertin Cazetiers
    Event Date: 18/02/2021 Roll over Clos St-Jacques? Not necessarily, but in terms of value for money, Les Cazetiers is a strong contender for providing exceptional quality at a more-or-less fair price. The next door vineyard has a multitude of different plots, with a variety of different soil types – yet somehow the mineral class of Cazetiers shows through,...

  • Chassagne-Montrachet under the Microscope
    Chassagne-Montrachet under the Microscope
    Event Date: 11/02/2021 Are you a Puligny person or a Meursault fan? Hang on, what about Chassagne? The appellation is sometimes criticised because there is too much red wine territory which has been set to producing chardonnay, but the best parts of the village can make magical wines. I have chosen six of the finest producers of the...

  • Rugiens Rex? King of Pommard
    Rugiens Rex? King of Pommard
    Event Date: 04/02/2021 The leading candidate for promotion to grand cru in Pommard is Les Rugiens, the deepest and richest wine that Pommard can offer. The whole appellation is on an upswing, benefitting from global warming and the arrival of fresh blood in the village. Does the vineyard merit promotion? We can decide after tasting these six wines...

  • Carel Voorhuis of Camille Giroud Interviewed by Jasper
    Carel Voorhuis of Camille Giroud Interviewed by Jasper
    Event Date: 14/01/2021 Camille Giroud has tiny vineyard holdings in Beaune; otherwise relying on contracts from as far afield as Marsannay and Maranges, with particular strengths in Corton and the Gevrey Chambertin vineyards. The quality of winemaking is consistent and very much in the modern, quality-oriented genre, although the practice of very gentle oak treatment and little racking continues, so that each cuvée shows a...

    Burgundy & Bordeaux – 67 Pall Mall Christmas Battle
    Event Date: 17/12/2020 To celebrate a year of Bordeaux and Burgundy #67athome tastings with Jasper Morris MW and Jane Anson, we thought we would end 2020 with a lineup of some of the best wines from both regions, from iconic and well known and smaller cult choices, with Jasper and Jane introducing their choices. Jane is kicking things...

  • Jane’s & My Favourites Outside of Burgundy & Bordeaux
    Jane’s & My Favourites Outside of Burgundy & Bordeaux
    Event Date: 14/12/2020 What non-Burgundy and Bordeaux wines do I and Jane Anson always have on hand in our cellars? This special tasting will see each of us select our favourite producers and regions outside of their respective specialties, and see them share the reasons for their choices. I admit I need a bit of Riesling to tune...

  • My Favourites for the Christmas Season
    My Favourites for the Christmas Season
    Event Date: 09/12/2020 There are many rituals over Christmas in the Morris household. We celebrate it on both 24th, Scandinavian fashion, and again on 25th in English style. I fill in the details, while we taste a selection of wines that should adorn the Christmas table. Make sure to have  a hunk of mature Comte cheese to nibble...

    Grands Echézeaux
    Event Date: 26/11/2020 Following up from the success of our events looking at Bonnes Mares and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, we extend the illumination of individual grands crus to Grands Echezeaux. Will we find more similarity with the rest of Echezeaux, or with close neighbours Clos de Vougeot and Musigny? Samples available for this event will include the...

  • 1855 Revisited: Tete de Cuvée Vineyards
    1855 Revisited: Tete de Cuvée Vineyards
    Event Date: 17/11/2020 Dr Lavalle, author of a celebrated book about the Côte d’Or published in 1855, classified certain vineyards as Tete de Cuvée. Some of these were then and remain now very famous (Chambertin, Musigny, Romanée-Conti) but others have slipped somewhat out of the limelight. This tasting unites six vineyards up and down the Côte which Dr...

  • Ancient Vines
    Ancient Vines
    Event Date: 12/11/2020 Just how important is vine age in Burgundy? Producers like to wax lyrical about their Vieilles Vignes and the received wisdom is that old vines make for more concentrated wines. We will test thus out with 6 beautiful Burgundies all made from vines planted before the Second World War, so at least 89 years old....

  • Bonnes Mares
    Bonnes Mares
    Event Date: 04/11/2020 Bonnes Mares –  one of the great grand crus of Burgundy, fascinating and just a touch schizophrenic: does it belong in Chambolle-Musigny or Morey-St-Denis? Do we prefer the brown soil or the white soil renditions? Discover all with this great line-up from the top producers: Wine Samples: 2014 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Bonnes-Mares, Grand...

  • Heading to the Back Country of the Côte de Beaune
    Heading to the Back Country of the Côte de Beaune
    Event Date: 27/10/2020 Why should we let the Montrachets, Meursault, Volnay and Pommard get all the glory? There are three delightful villages set in the valleys behind the main Côte which are delivering steadily more exciting wines as these cooler, formerly sometimes marginal, locations have been warming up. These days there is more flesh on the bones of...

  • Grand Cru Burgundy: Chambertin Clos de Bèze
    Grand Cru Burgundy: Chambertin Clos de Bèze
    Event Date: 13/10/2020 The second in our grand cru series features Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze, sibling or perhaps consort of Chambertin itself. This wine was so brilliantly described by Evelyn Waugh (Brideshead Revisited), as serene and triumphant! The line-up covers six of the seven most significant owners of Clos-de-Bèze from the promising 2012 vintage. Wine Samples of Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand...

  • Beaujolais: Moulin-à-Vent
    Beaujolais: Moulin-à-Vent
    Event Date: 08/10/2020 The most powerful of the Beaujolais crus and the most age-worthy is surely Moulin-à-Vent, a wine which can seem positively Burgundian as it ages. It has also caught the eye of various Côte d’Or producers in recent times, with many choosing to bottle different vineyards within the cru. This tasting will display the authority of...

  • Chambolle-Musigny Combe d’Orveau
    Chambolle-Musigny Combe d’Orveau
    Event Date: 09/09/2020 This unusual vineyard in Chambolle-Musigny should not be overlooked. It is the only lieu-dit in all of Burgundy which has four classifications from generic to grand cru (as part of Musigny). We have topped and tailed the tasting to bring two excellent village examples and all four of the wines which are regularly made at 1er Cru...

  • 2010 Red Horizontal
    2010 Red Horizontal
    Event Date: 31/08/2020 2010 has proven to be an unsuspected star for the red wines of Burgundy. It did not feel like a great vintage at the time, overshadowed by the sunshine of 2009, but opinions started to improve when we tasted the wines in barrel, and now 2010 is established as one of the success stories of...

  • Aligoté Fest
    Aligoté Fest
    Event Date: 27/08/2020 Pay attention at the back – Aligoté is coming to town! No longer the grape relegated to receiving a slug of crème de cassis to make a vin blanc Kir, Aligoté has taken the wine world by storm in the last two years. The younger generation of vignerons have started to produce some truly exciting...

  • 2014 White Horizontal
    2014 White Horizontal
    Event Date: 24/08/2020 Once in a while a vintage comes along which stands out just that little bit more. It is not always so obvious for white Burgundy, but a clear favourite for the vintage of the last decade in white must be: 2014! Modest (plus) in red but magical in white, 2014 has already provided much enjoyment,...

  • Understanding Corton
    Understanding Corton
    Event Date: 20/08/2020 If ever there was a misunderstood appellation in Burgundy, it must be Corton. So much wine classified as Grand Cru, so many different styles. Much of it is very good wine, not all of it deserves to be Grand Cru. But if you study the appellation in detail, you will find the wine to suit...

  • Grand Crus of Morey St-Denis
    Grand Crus of Morey St-Denis
    Event Date: 13/08/2020 Time to take a good look at the very best of Morey St Denis. Two wines from Clos de la Roche will face two from Clos St Denis: will producer or terroir lead the way? The two grand crus are intertwined but typically show quite different characters. Just as fascinating is the rivalry between Clos...

  • Pouilly-Fuissé
    Pouilly-Fuissé
    Event Date: 06/08/2020 The most dynamic white wine appellation in Burgundy at the moment is Pouilly-Fuissé. There has been a surge in the number of top flight producers at work, perhaps encouraged by the up-coming classification of 1ers crus. I take us through the characteristics of the different villages, which make up the appellation, outline which vineyards are...

    Top White Burgundy – Montrachet & friends
    Event Date: 30/07/2020 I lead us through each of the different Montrachet grands crus, each with its own character as decided by its place on the slope and what is going on below the ground.

    Gevrey Clos St-Jacques in 2017
    Event Date: 23/07/2020 Whenever the question is asked: Which 1er Cru vineyards in Burgundy might be promoted to Grand Cru? Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St-Jacques is always cited among the very first names due for promotion. What makes it even more intriguing is that there are just 5 producers, and their holdings all run up and down the slope parallel...

    Magnificent Meursault
    Event Date: 13/07/2020 Meursault may not have any grands crus to its name, but this favourite white Burgundy village is chock full of star producers.

  • The New Generation in Burgundy
    The New Generation in Burgundy
    Event Date: 01/07/2020 For so many years the “new generation” of exciting young Burgundians at the helm of their family domaine meant the likes of Dominique Lafon, Etienne Grivot, Ghislaine Barthod, Louis Boillot and co. Now, in turn, it is time for them to be thinking of handing on the baton. We invited Léa and Pierre Lafon, Mathilde...

    The Grand Crus of Chambertin
    Event Date: 25/06/2020 Chambertin and Clos de Bèze have established their positions at the top of the grand cru hierarchy, but: What of the satellite grands crus? Are they all up to the mark?

  • Bonneau du Martray
    Bonneau du Martray
    Event Date: 15/06/2020 Myths about Corton-Charlemagne abound, but it is accepted that part of the vineyard did once belong to Charlemagne, King of the Franks, Holy Roman Emperor, reformer of education, father of Western Europe and famously, a wine lover… Almost unique among Burgundy growers for only producing grand cru wines, Domaine Bonneau du Martray owns 11 hectares...

  • Biodynamic Burgundy
    Biodynamic Burgundy
    Event Date: 11/06/2020 Is this the new mainstream? Or are biodynamic practitioners “Out where the buses don’t run”? Certainly a number of cult domaines have espoused this philosophy of grape growing and winemaking. To talk us through how the biodynamic movement has developed in Burgundy, I have selected six wines from among the most noted producers, so we...

    2015 Red Burgundy: Where Does It Rank in the Hall of Fame?
    Event Date: 23/05/2020 2015 is certainly a candidate for an ‘All Time Great’ rating. But just how good are the red wines of Burgundy in 2015? Do they combine the power of 2005 with the grace of 2010? Do they have the potential to develop extra depth and layers of flavour with age. To try to answer these...
