I arrived in Beaune in time for lunch at the excellent bistro Le Gourmandin. I barely had time to drop my bags at my hotel in Nuits-St.-George before heading to my first appointment. I have already tasted nearly 100 wines from the 2005 vintage, so I will give you some of the highlights.
I’m in Burgundy. There was a big party in Nuits-St.-Georges this weekend, so I spent the night in Chablis, halfway from Paris to Beaune. I ate (and drank) well at La Feuillette 132 , a rustic bistro in the center of Chablis.
In today’s world where the emphasis is on instant gratification, the Alsace winery Trimbach is a throwback to another era. While most wineries are releasing wines from the 2005 vintage, Trimbach’s current releases of its top wines are from 2001.
