Critic Notes

Burgaud’s 2008 Morgon Cote de Py is scented with cherry, red currant, and narcissus. It combines cut and brightness of fruit with clean meatiness and stony minerality. More concentrated than the Charmes, it is also predictably more severe, so that the wafting floral character and sheer elegance of that cuvee seems enhanced when one returns to it. But without doubt, this Cote de Py will be well worth following after bottling, not to mention after being in bottle for a few years. It’s possible that this will benefit from the last-minute inclusion of a small lot (which tasted outstanding from barrel) earmarked to become the 2008 Cuvee James. Aug 2009, www.robertparker.com

Consumers could be forgiven for getting a little confused over which one is which! We caught up with Joseph Colin, the newest Colin to go solo, following ...

The Definitive Vertical tasting of Hermitage with Jean-Louis Chave
Spending an evening with Jean Louis Chave to taste through 31 vintages of his Hermitage has to be one of the most memorable wine experiences of my life. Not only was it a fascinating journey through the ages, but the consistency and condition of the wines spanning 70 years was extraordinary. There were two off bottles in the entire line ...

Market Outlook January 2013
A look back on 2012 2012 has been an eventful year in the wine trade. In many ways, it has been a difficult twelve months: tough economic conditions, falling prices for investment grade wines and a tortuous en primeur Bordeaux campaign have all made buying and selling wine more challenging than usual. The flipside of turbulence, however, is opportunity and ...
