Jacques Seysses quote of the day: “Before harvest, only journalists know if its going to be a good or bad vintage”. #dontwriteoff2013yet
Sometimes, people forget that tradition is innovation that succeeded. Being traditional is not antinomic to being curious, learning.
So please, natural wine enthusiasts, stop serving me brown, oxidized filth while telling me that these wines truly reflect their origins.
Hail stones the size of plums falling in Nuits St Georges for 2 mins. They will have done some damage. How much? We will now tomorrow.
Always a bit surprised when I find out I prefer a producer's entry level wines to his top cuvees, which can taste overly alcoholic or oaky.
When it comes to expressing terroir, a non oxidized wine does this better than the same wine, oxidized. Oxidation results in convergence.
It bothered me when RMP disliked wines I admired. Now that he has given 100pts to Clape, I would prefer it if he paid them no attention.
Full flower was yesterday. About 100 days till harvest. Expecting to start sometime between 10-15 September.
.@MarkHaisma In cold light of day, Côte de Nuits didn’t suffer too much. Looks like Meurs’lt-Volnay-Pomm-Beaune got the worst of it. Again.
