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 »

  • Domaine Parent Volnay Premiere Cru Clos des Chenes 2005

    Snoothrank:

    I had this Volnay with triple chocolate cheesecake for dessert at a wine tasting and it was phenomenal! It has a fragrant bouquet that will get better and better with age. And like any true Volnay, its ample fruit flavors are marked by finesse rather than power. Youll notice an elegant finish and tremendous balance. Read More

  • Diochon Moulin a Vent Beaujolais France 2006

    Snoothrank:

    I pared this up with shrimp and asparagus. The shrimp had a mild garlic sauce while the asparagus was drizzled with EVO, sesame seeds and pepper. The wine balanced well and neither over powered one another. Plum, cranberries and cherries were most obvious on the nose and I did pick up subtle hints of oak. The wine is slightly dry with a fruity p... Read More

    Wine review by menatesto


  • There's a lot of discussion of destemming practices in Burgundy and the Rhone, and debate about the general shift away from including stems. What has the practice been in Piedmont? I don't ever recall anyone discussing it.Given nebbiolo's high tannins, I can see the argument for leaving them out. But I assume that they were traditionally inclu... Read More
