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 »

    Snoothrank:

    I had the privilege of tasting this wine together with the 2004 vintage. With 2004 it was easy ... makes you feel you are visiting a Belgian chocolatier where the smoke of good Cuban cigars secretly sneaks in from somewhere. As for 1996 ... just the best ! Read More

  • Blason de Bourgogne Bourgogne Cuvée 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Strawberry and raspberry jam notes on the nose. Nice acidity but flabby berry fruit and earth notes don't completely come together as a cohesive whole. A fine everyday wine that I paired with Salmon and arugula, but nothing to write home about.(I was tasting the 2007 vintage) Read More

    Snoothrank:

    No. No. No. Tart and acidic is okay for me, old world style on Pinot Noir I can also appreciate. We sensed what they were going for here, but we both thought the wine just tasted lazy and watered down. The bottle wasn't bad, but the wine was...(we had 2 and they both were the same) Read More
