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 »

  • Georges Duboeuf Chardonnay Vin de Pays d'Oc 2004

    Gentle aroma. Fairly tart and vinegary. Coats the mouth with alcoholic warmth as it goes down. Not much fruit or sweetness in the flavor. Fair. Read More

  • Georges Dubuf Régnié 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has a purple hue and is fairly transparent. Not overwhelming on the nose - earth and strawberry (?) notes. Medium bodied, medium-low acidity, low alcohol (compared to the California wines I've been used to), but lots of fruit - plum, blueberry and strawberry flavors. Easy to drink wine, good for summer weather. Read More

  • Domaine Olivier Pere et Fils Santenay les Coteaux Sous la Roche Grand Vin de Bourgogne 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Though it belongs to the very promising 07' Burgundy vintage and it could certainly use some more time in the bottle, the promise began to shine through early on. Santenay has always been one of my favorite Beaune appellations, as it combines classic finesse with some exotic elements. This one does not fall too far from my impression of things... Read More

  • Bourgogne Blanc les Herbeaux Domaine Caillot 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A fascinating wine...almost too much so. The wine itself has a remarkably powerful aroma that is matched by its flavor. It is almost reminiscent of the garigue flavors typical to a Languedoc Red. As the name suggests, it is incredibly herbacious and woody, but not in an oaky sense. It was certainly delicious, but it was a true taste-bud killer. Read More

  • Pierre Morey Aligoté Bourgogne-Aligoté 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This is an odd one. Nose of cured meats. It almost smells like pate'. THat and wood. Hard core wood. The flavor isn't unpleasant. Crisp, there is a characteristic of some fruit. It's really hard to place with such a strong nose. I opened today 7/13/09. Perhaps this wine didn't hold up? It wasn't bad, nor great. A conundrum really. Ha... Read More
