The Darviot-Perrin Bourgogne Chardonney 2012 is a tremendous effort for the vintage and this level. It’s made from the vineyard Les Magnys (both village and generic) from very old vines planted in 1953. It offers true Meursault character at a very reasonable price level. In the bouquet fresh and crisp white and yellow fruits .. pure, quite exotic and expressive – offering a lovely minerality. On the palate fresh and vibrant for the vintage with a lovely ripe and weighty fruit. Love the fresh acidity and a fine expression of terroir. A delightful “little Meursault” in the making … impressive.

- Bourgogne Day 1 – Arrival Arrival in Vosne … with a busy week ahead – sadly not time to visit “all” producers in one week – yet I have done my best given the circumstances and resent lockdown. And starting out with the principals … Bourgogne or Burgundy .. Bourgogne does sound much more emotional – while Burgundy tends to sound ...
- Time is on my side The restaurant business has and is really struggling during the covid crisis, and we have sadly not yet seen its full impact. This made me reminisce about great pairings of food and wine I’ve experienced over the last 30 years or so. Chefs have come onto the scene, as have restaurants, and have disappeared again almost ...

Thibault has two – no, three – plots located very close to the promised land. One is Chassagne-Montrachet Les Blanchots Dessus, just a few ...
- Visit Domaine Jean Fournier – tasting 2018 A bit more than two years ago, at the Grands Jours de Bourgogne in Marsannay, I had the pleasure of tasting the wines of Laurent Fournier for the first time. I was impressed to find fine energy and vivacity in his wines, and a hedonistic flair that I don’t normally find in the wines from the ...
- Maison Harbour – tasting the 2018s The 2018 vintage is mysterious, and more complex than any recent vintage. It is not a vintage that will conform to foregone conclusions: The truth is, as always, in the glass, and not all 2018s are pretty. As always, the ratings here are personal – i.e. there is only Steen Öhman, aka the Winehog, to blame, ...
