    Tasting reports

  • 2008: Ten Years On

    I was a little less enthusiastic at the outset about this vintage though it found a number of supporters. The colours were typically quite pronounced from the word go and though there was often intense fruit at the front and powerful acidity behind, there was too often a hole in...

  • 1998: Twenty Years On

    On the occasion of the annual 10 Year On tasting for the 2008 vintage, a number of generous and brave vignerons also supplied samples from 1998. This was a particularly difficult vintage for the white wines, many of which were frosted at Easter, suffered from oidium in the spring and...

  • 2016: The Vintage Report (Côte d'Or)

    My aim is to give a relatively comprehensive guide to the 2016 vintage in Burgundy. I have visited around 100 producers and completed notes on around 1350 wines. In future years I hope to add in further producers, a mix of classic names who I was not able to visit...

  • Domaine Dujac - a Double Double Bill (1)

    No, that is not a misprint in the title! This report covers a dual vertical of Clos de la Roche and Clos St Denis held and some double dipping of great Dujac bottles over dinner at La Tour d’Argent in Paris on two separate occasions, in January and July 2018....

  • The Wizards of Meursault 1: Coche-Dury

    An evening at Sushi Shin restaurant, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong (highly recommended by the way) dedicated to the wines of Jean-François Coche-Dury across various appellations and vintages. While sadly both bottles of Corton-Charlemagne 1989 were a little flawed by their corks, there were a number of quite magnificent wines at...

  • The wizards of Meursault 2: Domaine Arnaud Ente

    Jean-François Coche-Dury, Dominique Lafon, Jean-Marc Roulot – perhaps the three great names in Meursault over the last thirty years, though there are plenty more who could give them a run for their money. I am not at all unhappy with my purchases from François Jobard during this period! In the...

  • Domaine Dugat-Py dinner

    One might characterise the Dugat-Py wines as being a quiet rather than a noisy cult. When referred to, it is often with high praise but the domaine is not on everybody’s lips. Many are not aware of the wines. A few are put off by a perceived over-concentration. The wines...

  • 1997: Twenty Years On

    Every year growers gather at my neighbour’s in Burgundy in June and bring with them bottles or magnums (M) of the 10 year old and, in a few cases, the 20 year old, vintage. So this year we had sixteen 1997s and around 100 2007s to taste. An unheralded vintage...

  • Mature Volnay

    The tasting, held on 13th October 2017, accompanied by an excellent dinner at Amuse Bouche restaurant in Hong Kong, was designed to compare three classical Volnay producers across various more or less mature vintages, notably the fascinating trio of 1991-1990-1989. The wines were not tasted blind.

  • Domaine Armand Rousseau: Chambertin

    Dinner at the Capital Hotel, London, 5th July 2018
