I really adore the Saint-Aubin Murgers Des Dents de Chien terroir, and also the producer Jean-Claude Bachelet. I am however not very impressed by many or even most white 2009 Burgundies. It’s a vintage lacking the basic freshness and energy, in some cases this is provided by the terroir – the big grand crus do quite well in a rich vintage like this. In this case the wine seems dense, lacking the playful energy and minerality found in the 2008, 2013 and 2013 vintages of this wine – tasted at the same event. It will keep – but I think I would have prefered this three years ago, when the mature notes were less pronounced and the youthful freshness more prevalant. The 2012 is also lacking a bit of freshness – and should be tasted now in my mind ..

- Once Mont Rachet now Blanchot .. the unknown neighbour!The vineyard Blanchot Dessus is located just south of Le Montrachet – the Chassagne part of the legendary Grand Cru Montrachet. Blanchots Dessus seen from south Blanchot Dessus is a small and relatively unknown vineyard with few owners – somewhat overlooked compared to its more famours nighbours Montrachet and Criots-Batard Montrachet. But what is the history of this ...
- WineHog rating system – more than pointsMy aim with the Winehog is unchanged, but I have for some time wanted a stronger focus on the hedonistic pleasure and simple enjoyment of drinking Burgundies. I have therefore adjusted my mission statement: “My mission is to help readers find more joy and hedonistic pleasure in Burgundy wines; to help them understand the terroirs and ...
