Cote d’Or

Home to the most famous wines in Burgundy, the Cote d’Or is a narrow strip of land situated on a fault line, which giving it enormous geological diversity. All of Burgundy’s Grands Crus (except for those in Chablis) are located here. The Cote de Nuits is the most northerly part of the Cote d’Or. It contains mostly red Grands Crus. The Cote de Beaune is to the south. Most of its Grands Crus are white.

The Cote d’Or is an east-facing escarpment, providing ideal exposure for the vines. Typically, the best wines are found in the middle of the slope. The fertile plain at the hillside’s base produces wines that carry a basic Bourgogne appellation. As the ground starts to slope, improving drainage, one finds village-level wines. Higher on the slope, on poorer, stonier topsoil, are the Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards.

  • Had a a couple bottles of a 1er Cru Chablis (Montmains, Closerie des Alisiers, Stephane Brocard) with a couple other people at dinner last night (already the 15th here). Clams a la Campania for starters and planked salmon covered with pepper jack during the baking process as the main. Vichysoisse and a salad, also a tarte tatin dessert with Calv... Read More

  • So basically anything outside Toscana and Piemonte is fair game?Alto Piemonte is still Piemonte and still nebbiolo--even if it's called Spanna or something else. Gattinara/Ghemme/Carema/Lesona (all except the last I've posted on here) are just higher-altitude versions of the wine being made in Barolo and Barbaresco, and in several cases aren't e... Read More

  • Among the sparklers, Jacquesson's GVS beat out the Schramsberg BdN, though I like both wines. Good comparison since the Jacquesson was 55% PN and 45% chard. Not a version that they produce any more, to my knowledge. I really like that house and used to drink cases and cases of it last decade, including that vintage. Zero chaptalization, extended...

  • Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This nicely acidic Gevrey-Chambertin, that famous magnet of wine tourists south of Dijon, is very quaffable and age-worthy. The strawberry nose is flecked with grassy notes and the entry does pucker the lips, but this indicates a fairly lengthy age-worthiness. Decent French Burgundy from a famous appellation. 88 points.

I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world.
