New Digs for Two Houses

Posted: June 15, 2006  By Bruce Sanderson

I’m back in New York now and a few days behind in my postings, but that’s what traveling does to one’s schedule. I arrived in Paris Tuesday and planned to meet some friends in the center of the city; however, the RER train from Charles de Gaulle to the city wasn’t running.

Another World

Posted: June 12, 2006  By Bruce Sanderson

Day 8, June 10: This day, I journeyed to another world, the Maconnais. I fell in love with the rolling hills, steep valleys and the imposing limestone outcroppings, the most famous of which is Le Solutré.

TGIF

Posted: June 11, 2006  By Bruce Sanderson

Day 7, June 9: I went to Domaine Jean Grivot , which consists of 40 acres spread over 18 different vineyards. Though the estate is not organic, Etienne Grivot farms his land thoughtfully and prefers a combination of young, old and very old vines in each site.

A Tour of the Côte de Beaune

Posted: June 9, 2006  By Bruce Sanderson

This trip is my first impression of the 2005 red and white Burgundies. But it is an impression, and it’s important to remember that these are still unfinished wines. They have another 7 or 8 months to mature in barrel before being assembled for bottling.

All Nuits, All Day

Posted: June 8, 2006  By Bruce Sanderson

Day 5, June 7: As it turned out, my 3 appointments are all in Nuits-St.-Georges. And, as in my previous visits, I tasted all the wines non-blind in the cellars. The Liger-Belair family began in the wine business in 1720, but it wasn’t until 2002 that a family member made wines from the vineyards.

Up and Down the Côte d'Or in a Day

Posted: June 7, 2006  By Bruce Sanderson

Day 4: June 6 There’s nothing like tasting 60 wines before lunch. When you visit chez Louis Jadot, that’s a fraction of the wines made. And if it were left to the energetic winemaker Jacques Lardière, you would not leave without tasting everything.
