You’re the INSPIRATION 🎶
At Sunday School we talk a lot about the journey, which for most of us has included an awful lot of the sacramental juice - and if you’re one of the blessed few, that includes a bit of BURGUNDY. There’s hardly a winemaker out there that hasn’t looked across the pond to the Holy Grail of Chardonnay for a little inspo, and that includes our friends @fantescawine 🍷 DLynn and Chelsea were kind enough to bring this Heavenly MAG of ‘02 Marc Colin Chassagne-Montrachet ‘les Caillerets’ which was sung as lovely as a choir of angels 👼 for our Sunday schoolers. Have you been inspired by a bottle of #burgundy ? Share your story and the bottle in the comments below!

Because staycations are necessary. #reset with some #whiteburg of course. 🙆🏻

Etienne Sauzet Bourgogne Blanc, 2014

Keep and eye on this wine it is but a pup.
A fresh nose withnotes of pear, nuts and citrus where the latter element can also be found on the intense and well-detailed palate, think preserved lemon and almonds that conclude in a complex and lingering finish where a hint of bitter lemon pith. It’s sooo long. This is a quality Bourgogne that would make a fine choice for any cellar in the early drinking section.

With the final WSET Diploma behind me it is time to catch up on a lot of posts as there was no lack of grand wines recently. And let’s start with a sneak preview into what was simply an ultimate tasting. After I orchestrated a full 2004 grower bottled Montrachet horizontal last year @naradmuni1966 followed up with this crazy event that featured 20 Chevalier Montrachets and 5 Montrachets, all from the 2004 vintage. For those in the know, just the sourcing effort that went into this is of mindnumbing proportions. This even involved asking friendly Burgundy domaines to trade their own bottles to get a loose bottle of another producer that doesn’t do more than half a barrel a year (!). A series of posts will follow to document and learn from this unforgettable event. All wines were served completely blind in neutral vessels (which is the only way) and 12 people voted blind. Stay tuned!

@naradmuni1966 🙏🏻 And @naradmuni1966, you. 🙏🏻#chevaliermontrachet#pulignymontrachet #grandcru#montrachet#unicorns #whiteburg#endgame#

Acclimatising back to English life by visiting a wonderful French restaurant in the New Forest. Domaine Olivier Leflaive @olivierleflaive is still one of my favourite burgundy producers. I have never had a Rully before, the nose was perfect, the palate was slightly under-gunned. Elegant, had those signature Leflaive layers of vibrant white flowers, slightly honeyed, floral but a lighter palate compared to other Olivier Leflaive wines. But still a good white burg for a summers evening. #wine #wine🍷 #winegeek #winelover #winegeek #whiteburg #whiteburgundy #burgundy #olivierleflaive #domaineolivierleflaive #rully #rully1ercru

In the cellar with Sébastien Caillat in Chassagne-Montrachet, as he pulls a sample of the 2017 Lamy-Caillat La Romanée. Sébastien is doing something quite different with the production of these wines vs. Lamy-Pillot (which he is also in charge of). He has the intention of these to be long term agers, so instead of pressing gently and being overly careful in the winery, he is using an old style press to extract more of the solid mater from the grapes, ages on the lees throughout, and bottles two years after harvest with no filtration. The wines are absolutely stunning as a result, and while this label only first bottled in 2012, the blood in this wine runs deep. These wines are near the top of the heap if you ask me. Our visit was a great highlight for us, and everything we drank from both 2016 and 2017 was top flight despite not being finished. .

Natasha and I had such a fun time today exploring the vineyards of Burgundy proper. It’s so crazy to see the vines of these wines that are so amazing and specific. We were on our way to a visit at Lamy-Caillat (AMAZING, BTW) when we saw the arch at the Grand Cru Chevaliers-Montrachet, which was irresistible for a photo in the wind.

We just had time for one visit in Chablis while passing through to Beaune, but first we had to stop by Les Clos and see this wonderful vineyard in the flesh. Pretty neat to finally be here. Then Natasha and I had a really lovely two hour visit with Julie Fevre at Nathalie et Gilles Fevre. Such killer wines being made here and we’re lucky to have a direct line to Oregon via E&R wine shop. .
