      Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru had a rather anonymous nose, perhaps closed down, tight-lipped and unresponsive. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, slightly dry and foursquare with some attenuation and bitterness towards the finish. This is a disappointing showing and I will seek to re-evaluate it later. Tasted September 2016.

  • Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
