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 »

  • Duboeuf Nouveau 2008

    Snoothrank:

    As far as Noveaus go, this one wasn't overly sweet as they sometimes can be. It's definitely a young drinking wine, not for all, but this one seemed to have some depth to it and I rather enjoyed it this year. Generally I prefer the Moulin-a-Vent because it's the bolder and heavier cru. Read More

Well I do ... ... a passing resemblance to Burgundy of a certain age.  One of the consequences of this transformation is that the fruit become less flamboyant and more transparent allowing the minerality of the terroir to express itself.It is somewhat bazaar to think of but B...
