JMIB tasting reports

The core activity of our Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy website is the provision of Tasting Reports. Each one of these provides an interesting narrative in its own right, while also populating the database which is growing all the time, and from which at any time you can check up on the current rating of any wine of interest. The Tasting Reports themselves come in various guises and this is fully explained below in “An introduction to Tasting Reports”.


JMIB Tasting Notes

All wines are given both a point score and a star rating: A full explanation can be found by clicking on “An Introduction to Tasting Notes” below.

    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...

    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 (Chablis)
    Two visits to Chablis earlier this year were principally aimed at tasting the 2017s, which will appear in my end of year vintage report. Many producers were keen to show their 2016 vintage as well or instead, if the 2017s were not yet ready to taste. A few 2015s and...

    Clos de Tart: Sylvain Pitiot Retrospective
    A retrospective tasting and dinner were held in November 2015 to mark the retirement of Sylvain Pitiot as régisseur after 19 vintages. Sylvain, son-in-law of the late Pierre Poupon, has had an interesting and varied career – vigneron for the Hospices de Beaune and especially as co-author of various books...

    Domaine G Roumier: Bonnes Mares
    When exactly did Roumier Bonnes Mares join the firmament of cult wines? It is not something that Christophe Roumier was ever aiming to achieve – he just wants to make the best wines he can from his vineyards, and of course he has the great good fortune to have a...

  • Domaine Dugat-Py dinner
    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...

    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....

    Domaine Dujac – a Double Double Bill (2)
    Part 2: Dujac at La Tour d’Argent If we approached the vertical double bill in a spirit of analysis, drinking a series of old bottles from the domaine from La Tour d’Argent’s incredible cellar in January 2018, with Jeremy Seysses as an invited guest, was a sublime pleasure. Much the...

    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...
