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.

    Domaine Lamarche: La Grande Rue
    La Grande Rue consists of a narrow strip of vineyard, never more than 50 metres wide, starting above the houses of the village and finishing just higher up the slope than neighbouring La Romanée, the soil being shallower and poorer than at the lower end. The first mention of this...

    Joseph Drouhin: Le Musigny
    The Drouhin holding of Musigny covers 0.67ha at the northern end of the Grand Cru. It is mostly formed by one single block purchased in 1961, though Maison Drouhin used to get grapes from the previous owner before this date. On the viticultural side, it should be noted that the...

  • Mature Volnay
    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 Jean Grivot: Richebourg
    Domaine Jean Grivot: Richebourg
    I had the great pleasure of attending a vertical tasting of Etienne Grivot’s Richebourg in November 2015. Most of the samples had been assembled over the years by collector Richard Orders, with gaps being supplemented from the domaine. Tasting such wines should always be a pleasure, but what made this...

    Domaine Méo-Camuzet: Richebourg
    The domaine, a leading light of Vosne-Romanée, takes its name from two connected families. Etienne Camuzet was deputé for the Côte d’Or from 1902 to 1932. He purchased some significant vineyard holdings as well as the Château de Clos de Vougeot, which he later gave to the Confrérie des Chevaliers...

    Domaine Cathiard Dinner
    A dinner at the excellent Guo Fu Lou Restaurant, Wan Chai, Hong Kong on 26th January 2018. Two of the three wines from 2000 were affected by cork taint, unfortunately not a unique experience with Cathiard wines from this vintage. Otherwise Sylvain Cathiard’s gorgeously hedonistic style showed to very good...

    The Domaine des Comtes Lafon owns 3.78 hectares located in the heart of Volnay Santenots-du-Milieu, their flagship red wine vineyard. Parts of the vineyard have been replanted at regular intervals: 1944, ‘62, ‘65, ‘78, ‘96 and 2002, though the younger vines have been declassified into a village Volnay since 1999....
