January 2013 is red Burgundies!

On January 13, 2013 we celebrate the new year with a tasting of 2006 Burgundies!

Our selection of wines from our cellar includes all Grand Cru and Premier Cru Burgundies: two Cortons, two Gevrey Chambertins, and one each of Morey-St-Denis, Clos de la Merechale, Volnay and Vosne-Romanée, all from well-known producers – a fantastic selection indeed! 

According to wine critic and Mast of Wine, Clive Oates, “These 2006s are medium bodied, plump, fresh, fruity and pleasant. The very best are in addition ripe and stylish. Acidities are not aggressive; indeed some of the less-successful bottles already show signs of astringency because there is a lack of grip. They will evolve in the medium term. There are plenty of attractive bottles for the mid-2010s.”   “The best 2006s will be found in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée and Gevrey-Chambertin. There are also some good Cortons.”   Clive indicates that much of the Cote de Beaune will be ready by 2013 and 2014, with some of them drinking at their best already.
