I was still a little jet-lagged and wanted a short nap, but there wasn't time. I was due to taste a wide range of reds and whites with winemaker Frédéric Weber at Bouchard Père & Fils, one of Burgundy's venerable négociants. Once into the tasting, I felt invigorated by the wines, their freshness and energy. And this is one characteristic of Burgundy's 2015 Pinot Noirs: At the end of a tasting, there is little to no fatigue.
