Beaune Coucheraux Grand Cru 1955 fro Louis Jadot. The wine was very developed, but still had some fruit and body, but it is in serious decline. Difficult to judge a wine like this, but it’s still hiding elements of greatness behind the oxidized bouquet.(Drink now) – 86p

- Visit Domaine Dublère – tasting of the 2016s from cask Good to be back at Domaine Dublère to taste the 2016s. Blair Pethel also suffered from the struggle with mother nature in this vintage, as the Savigny-Les-Beaune region was badly hit by the April 2016 frost. It’s sad to see how the growers in this area of the Côte have to endure frost, hail and mildew ...
- Collins Corner #15 – 50 years may be too soon Some insights come when least expected. Such as the case of Savigny from Seguin-Manuel. Seguin-Manuel, originally in Savigny, dates to 1824. The Savigny plots that compose the source of the villages wine date back nearly that long. When the winery was purchased in 2004 by Thibaut Marion, one of the primary reasons was these old ...
- Visit Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet – tasting of the 2016s from cask One of the rising stars of Burgundy is Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet. Amélie Berthaut has taken over the vineyards of Domaine Berthaut in Fixin from her fathers side, and 2/3rds of the vineyards from Domaine Gerbet in Vosne-Romanée from her mothers family, and in addition she has some rented vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin from the Mercier family (Domaine ...
- Visit Domaine Lamarche – tasting the 2016s from cask My second visit at Domaine Lamarche – and eager to see if the 2016s could match the fine wines made here in the 2015 vintage. I was impressed by the 2015s, as I historically have found wines from this estate somewhat underwhelming, but in recent years new generations and new standards have been taking over .. ...
- Visit Domaine Dujac tasting of the 2016s from cask Dujac 2016 and 2015s on the menu on this fine November day – a unique possibility to taste these two quite magnificent vintages side by side. So I was really looking forward to this event, as Jeremy Seysses generously was ready to pop the corks on most of the 2015 program for a few gentlemen ...
- Visit Domaine Jean-Marc Vincent – Tasting the 2016s from cask One of the best visits I had in 2017 was at Domaine Jean-Marc Vincent in Santenay. Several friends have been encouraging me to visit Jean-Marc Vincent and his wife Anne-Marie to taste their lovely wines. Sometimes I’m a bit slow .. but finally I felt compelled to arrange a visit in connection with expanding the ...
- Top reds of the 2016 vintage – a Winehog view There are many very fine and even outstanding wines in the 2016 vintage. The variation in quality and style is however quite large – and not all wines are great. The list will be updated as I taste more, and get ratings in place. Click on the wines to see the description of the wine, and ...
- Visit Domaine Trapet – Tasting the 2016s from cask I was ready and looking forward – my second visit of Domaine Trapet – and my last visit of the November 2017 tour of Burgundy. A great pleasure to visit Jean-Louis Trapet, as he is one of visionary frontrunners of biodynamic viticulture in Burgundy. For further background see my article from the visit last year when ...
