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.

    Snoothrank:

    The worst wine I have had in a long time! 2012 vintage. My wife and I both had a sip and poured everything down the drain. The first time have EVER done that! Read More

  • Okay, assignments just went out to LingProf, Emark and Mrs Emark, OT, JD and GdP.  If you got directions to my house, there is one correction:  The porch is to the right side of the house.  (Which is the west side of the house.)We've got interesting and excellent bottles already lined up, and I look forward to the surprises.  We'll be tasting wi...

  • Philippe Colin Chassagne Montrachet Philippe Colin 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Pale color. Aroma of faint apple, pear and mostly melon. All of these aromas are very faint. On the palate I pick up these same flavors and some tannins that are very soft. The finish is rather short. This wine is soft and is easy drinking. Read More

  • J.m. Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Really nice white burgundy from Puligny-Montrachet. Very flinty and minerally with some butterscotch, ripe pear and a touch of lemon chiffon. Very long finish that puts a little chalkiness at the back of the mouth. Read More

  • Good questions, LP.  Reliably taste?  With time and good notes, maybe thirty.  I think we will be well under that number.  I think we'll wind up with fifteen to twenty.  Regions I think we'll cover are SRH, SLH, SCM (Santa Cruz Mountains), RRV, Sonoma Coast, Anderson Valley, Oregeon, and the Cote d'Or, with both Beaune and Nuit.  (I just got thr...
