May 2013 Trip to Burgundy

Just back from 3 days in Burgundy to taste some 2011 and the the great 2012 in barrel, most of the 2012’s had not yet started the malo-lactic fermentation, it was surprisingly easy to taste.

I visited Romanée Conti, Emmanuel Rouget, Comte de Vogüé, Christophe Roumier, Frédéric Mugnier, Christophe Sérafin, Gerard Raphet and Etienne Sauzet.

When we came to Cote de Nuits it was really cold, 10°C in the morning ! very unusual for may. Rainy but to be faire also some sun, but due to this cold weather the vines are at least two weeks behind compared to an average year.

The 2012’s in barrel at the DOMAINE DE LA ROMANEE CONTI were dense, a lot of soft fine tannins, very soft, Romanee Saint vivant was spectacular, never tasted a better on. We also tasted a coiple of older wines, La Tache 1990, started timidly in the glass but come strongly after 40 minutes, magnificent. Also tasted the 1999, more volume, great but needs more time to develop more complexity.

2011 at FREDERIC MUGNIER, delicious soft fragrant wines , many masterpices, and the wines tasted with CHRISTOPHE ROUMIER lovely but more structured wines, the straight Chambolle musigny was fantastic, graceful pure pleasure! And COMTE DE VOGUE, soft and delicious, but as usual a bit technical.

And SERAFIN, good to very good as usual, but the Charmes Chambertin was simply great, maybe better than his magnificent 1996!

With the other producers the wines were not tasting as well as they normally do, I have to re-taste them before the harvest.
