2011 Burgundy Preview: Refinement and Balance at Bouchard Père & Fils

Christophe Bouchard's 2011 lineup of Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays includes potential classics from Chambertin-Clos de Bèze, Montrachet and more

Posted: February 13, 2013  By Bruce Sanderson

Wine Spectator senior editor Bruce Sanderson is blogging from Burgundy as he previews the 2011 vintage. Some of the wines he is tasting have yet to be racked, while others have been assembled in barrel but not yet bottled; consequently, scores are given in ranges as these are unfinished wines that will continue to be refined before being bottled.

Today he tasted the 2011 lineup of Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays at Bouchard Père & Fils. Here are his scores and tasting notes.

2011 Burgundy Preview: Elegance and Purity at Méo-Camuzet

Jean-Nicolas Méo's 2011 Pinot Noirs, from Echézaux, Vosne-Romanée, Richebourg and more, exhibit a rare combination of low alcohol and ripeness

Some of the wines he is tasting have yet to be racked, while others have been assembled in barrel but not yet bottled; consequently, scores are given in ranges as these are unfinished wines that will continue to be refined before being bottled.

The range of 2011s from Domaine Méo-Camuzet captures the purity and elegance of the vintage. They exhibit freshness, ripe fruit and tannins on slimmer, lighter-bodied frames due to lower alcohol levels. Here are my scores and notes.

Back to Burgundy: Previewing the 2011 Vintage

I'm back in France for my annual tour of Burgundy, with my first stop at the small but growing négociant firm of Mischief & Mayhem

Posted: January 30, 2013  By Bruce Sanderson

I'm back in Burgundy for my annual trip to visit growers and merchants, this time to taste the 2011 red and white Burgundies. Many of the wines I will taste are still in barrel, not yet racked or treated with SO2. This is a good time to assess the young wines of the region. Others may have been racked and assembled in tank, with sulfur added, in preparation for bottling. Some may have been bottled already. I will note the various stages of the process in as much detail as possible.

My first stop was at the growing négociant firm of Mischief & Mayhem. Here are my scores and tasting notes.
