Burgundy Tastings

This is the place for tastings other than the marathon of barrel tastings I make in Burgundy every June and October, which form the mainstay of the Vintage Report. Unlike the report it is not confined to the Côte d’Or. This is the place to find flights of older vintages including my ‘Time to Mature’ Burgundy tastings. I began with 2008 whites and (soon to come) the 2000 and 2001 reds. There are some rather grand wines in these tastings, but this is also the place to find reviews of affordable wines – wines from the Maconnais and Maranges for example.
