Burgundy Wine

Bourgogne is perhaps the most complex and intimidating of French wine regions. 
 
It enjoys an exceptional geographical location, but it has plenty of other things going for it. Perfect weather for growing grapes, rich soils, renowned varietals and its remarkable Climats all combine to produce its 84 appellations that are recognized around the world. Not forgetting the expertise of its winegrowers, who hand down their know-how from generation to generation, whilst remaining up-to-speed with all the latest developments
 
The first to begin to recognize and codify the differences between vineyards were the Cistercian monks. They helped give us our notion of terroir. Most of the vineyards belonged to the church and nobility until the French Revolution, when they were redistributed and often split between several proprietors. They were further fragmented because of the inheritance law in the Napoleonic Code, which decreed that vineyards must be split equally among one’s heirs Read more »

  • Jean-Paul Brun Terres Dorees Roussanne 2017

    Snoothrank:

    This interesting little wine from southern Beaujolais is quite the conversation piece; here we have Rhone variety known for its mesmerizing tisane bouquet and yellow fruits on mid palate. Guess what? Here we have a more yellow custard, garden flower nose with a peachy confit flavour on the palate... a bit more tense than Rhone examples in my o... Read More

  • Sarl Jean Collet Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2017

    Snoothrank:

    A new tasting, but M. Collet does not disappoint with this Vaillons: the light, dilute apple juice yellow colour invites, as does the bouquet of fresh-cut McIntosh Apple, light ginger, vanilla and gun metal. The entry is smooth, with a hint of caramel, and some pear and apple. Not steely dry... there is some sweetness and a hint of oak treatme... Read More

  • Geantet-Pansiot Cote de Nuits Villages 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, brooding - almost claret-red in the glass, this wine has a wonderful perfume on the nose of sweet raspberry, wet black earth, violets and cypress greenery. This is a complex wine - especially considering its price. Entry is rich, elegant (no cloying elements), and except for a bracing, youthful acidity and warmth, well balanced. Defects... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Pale yellow color. Lightly fruity nose. Light fruit on the tip of the tongue--lemon, kiwi. Nice refreshing tartness. Some caramel, To the American palate, this is a fairly light Chardonnay. Interesting retronasal sensation under the rear palate suggesting baking spice. Read More
