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

- Collins Corner #21 – Gaps in the maps. I have always been fascinated with vineyards next to, almost part, or otherwise related to the ‘expensive and famous’. One commune with a wealth of riches is the iconic ‘Chambertin’, or properly Gevrey Chambertin. I felt at one time the power families of this area appropriated vineyards next door for their own benefit, but ...
- Côte de Nuits Villages with lovely potential The Côte de Nuits Villages appellation is both overlooked and somewhat vaguely defined, and other appellations have sometimes taken its credit when the labels are printed. But make no mistake, there are very interesting terroirs in Côte de Nuits Villages, terroirs with lovely potential. In recent years some top-end producers have started to be more closely ...
- Domaine Truchetet – a Premeaux-Prissey surprise Premeaux is one of my favourite areas, although it is officially part of the larger Nuits-Saint-Georges landscape. I do understand the marketing sense of using the Nuits-Saint-Georges brand, but on the other hand, I find some unique qualities in the Premeaux area, so I always seek out Premeaux wines and estates. A new estate (to me ...
- Dining in Hamburg: the good, the ugly, and a German treat Earlier this week, a short trip to Hamburg included some wine and dinner experiences of good – and not-so-good – quality. Since Hamburg is an important business centre, I gather some of you readers have the opportunity to go there from time to time – for better or worse. So a few tips and warnings … Unprepared and no ...
- Terroir View: Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche – a new cuvée Domaine Hubert Lignier was one of first estates I visited when I began my quest to understand Burgundy. This was back in the late 1990s when Romain Lignier was making truly magnificent wines at Domaine Hubert Lignier. Sadly Romain passed away in an untimely fashion in 2004 and, while the years after this were somewhat turbulent, ...
- Visit Domaine Bernard & Thierry Glantenay – Tasting the 2018s Domaine Bernard & Thierry Glantenay is one of at least two Glantenay estates in Volnay … saying at least to be sure that I dont have one more hiding in the Volnay hills. The other being Domaine Georges Glantenay located in the core of the village just below the church. This reminds me … next time ...
- Terroir Insight: The Poisot section of Romanée Saint-Vivant Burgundy is all about terroirs and vineyard holdings, and many talented wine makers are limited by the vineyards they own and financial opportunities to rent or buy great vineyards. It is therefore lovely to see when new generations take over a plot of one of the great vineyards – in this case the perhaps best located ...
- Winehog Awards – affordable and enjoyable wines in focus The focus on drinkable and at least somewhat affordable wines has led to the initiation of the Winehog Award. I know that most wines with an 86-point rating often are overlooked and forgotten, while the 93-point Malconsorts gets more attention.The fact is, however, that I often can find as much pleasure in an 86-point Bourgogne Rouge ...
