Most of the articles you see about how wine develops in the bottle over time explore the standard evolution of a single wine.
Taking this one step further, I ran an experiment over 18 years ago. Today you get to see the results.
During an impromptu tasting of Burgundies from Stéphane Magnien we got to explore the Villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny & Gevrey-Chambertin. Comparison of the 3 offering great insights into Burgundy in the glass!
I’ve been asked, almost daily for months now about the 2013 Vintage in Barolo and Barbaresco. So, how do you cut through the hype to work out the reality?
As you drive down the A6 from Paris, turn off at the N74 you start to see grape vines. Initially, you think you’ve gone a little cross-eyed from the long flight. Then you realise your eyes aren’t lying the vines are minute and packed close together!

THE INSANITY HAS GOT TO STOP!
Opening old bottles of wine with dodgy corks can be a challenge even for the most experienced wine hound.
Good hardware can make a big difference.
What went wrong?
BEWARE, DANGER LIES AHEAD! THE VINTAGE CHART!
A great mate of mine, Adrian, also a winemaker, visited a couple of months back. As is the norm when a couple of ex-winemakers get together, the Filthy Good Vino comes out of the cellar.
For years I’ve been wanting to have my own cellar to store all my #FilthyGoodVino. Finally it’s done. A cellar that will store 300 bottles of the finest wines from the collection that are ready to drink. Material and Specifcations included!
Just got a couple of these to help me clean my wine glasses!
