A thread for all things Burgundy.
Have you sampled an impressive bottle this Festive Season??
Many of us purchased these two for Christmas, but no tasting notes as yet:
Have you tried them?
How did you get on?
This is an expensive region to regularly buy from.
At the more reasonable end of the Burgundy firmament, I very often buy wine from these Domaine’s.
And there is also a Domaine that I have a long term plan for.
Some years ago, I got to taste a Bourgogne Rouge, that was (by mistake) kept far longer than perceived wisdom would indicate. By then it had thrown an impressive amount of sediment, howled of the compost heap and was quite wonderful!!
So I have bought cases of the 2013, 14, 15, 16, moronically forgot to buy the 2017 but bought the 2018 with an eye to the future!!
The quality of selection and winemaking has improved impressively over the last decade, and global warming is effecting Northern wine regions. Grivot is a top notch producer who doesn’t know how to make bad wine. It will be interesting to see how these bottles age??
And with the release of the 2019 Red Burgundy vintage in the not too distant future, where it is said that the wines have concentration as an attribute, hopefully this thread might be a useful place to post.
