Côte Chalonnaise

Boundaries exist for many reasons. They can delimit regions that are older than memory, or simply be expedient lines drawn on a map. History and geography, but also politics and favoritism, create boundaries. Wine regions are no different...  Continue »

Chambolle-Musigny

Chambolle, one of the prettiest villages in the Côte de Nuits, takes its name rather dramatically from the French words ‘champ bouillant’ meaning ‘boiling or bubbling field’. This isn’t a reference to any unusually hot climate, but instead refers to the torrential floods which can flow down nearby hillsides after heavy rainfall. But for our purposes, we’re more concerned...  Continue »

Fining and Filtration

The processes of fining and filtering wine are not exactly new, nor is the way they split the opinions of enthusiasts and producers alike; there has always been controversy over whether to use either (or neither) and what this really means for the wine in question.  Continue »

All You Need to Know About Wine Bottles

We often give a lot of thought to the color and character of the wine in a bottle, but not so much thought to the bottles themselves. Perhaps you think they’re all more or less the same? Far from being uniform across all wine types, the bottles we drink from have their own characters too, with many different designs...  Continue »

The Opening Ceremony - How to Open a Bottle of Wine

Drinking wine, especially good wine, is akin to a sort of ritual. We get pleasure from selecting the bottle, slicing the foil, pulling the cork (and that satisfying pop) before we even get around to sniffing and tasting. As with most things in life, to open a bottle properly - without risking ruining the cork, the wine or both – requires the right tools for the job. Let’s take a look...  Continue »

A Beginner’s Guide to Chardonnay

The Chardonnay grape embodies what for many people would be the ideal characteristics they look for in a partner. Take its character – it’s not demanding or needy like some grapes, and can even alter its flavor to adapt to the region it’s grown in. Is it generous? You bet – good-sized bunches just bursting with flavor. How does it get on with others? Well...  Continue »

Vintage Memories – the 2013 Campaign and Wines You Can Still Try

It was a small crop that Burgundy wine makers managed to gather in 2013, the fourth in as many years. Fortunes were split, as they often are; some of the wines were destined for great things, but for many it was a disastrous year. The locals call the weather conditions in a growing season ‘the campaign’ – which tells you a lot about the almost war-like mindset with which it’s approached.  Continue »

The wines of the ‘Bare’ Mountain of Montrachet

There is a saying in Burgundy, that ‘the habit does not make the monk.’ This won’t surprise anyone who knows the history of the wine-loving monks of Burgundy’s many abbeys. But it applies particularly in the case of one of the jewels in the crown of Burgundy wine – that of Chassagne-Montrachet, in the Côte de Beaune.  Continue »

Côte de Beaune

In Burgundy, the name of the wine grower counts for as much as the vineyard, which is why they have a saying here – ‘there are no great wines, only great bottles of wine.’ This is true for the whole region, but especially so in the very heart of Bourgogne – the Côte d’Or (comprised of the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits).  Continue »
