Terrorizing Burgundy from top to bottom...

Non-stop action here on our Burgundy Insider's Tour 2017 - from Chablis to the Mâconnais and all points in between. I have been keeping our group busy, happy, and well-fed, with noses deeply into their stemware as we taste our way up and down the Côte.

Great meals along the way so far at Castel Tres Girard in Morey, Bistro du Bord de l'Eau in Levernois, Auprès du Clocher in Pommard, Le Cellier Volnaysien in Volnay, and 21 Blvd. in Beaune, not to mention lunches in the cellars at Domaine Thibert in Fuissé and Frédéric Gueguen in Chablis - and we've still got three days to go!

The 2015s everywhere are exceeding the already lofty expectations - truly an epic vintage, one for the ages. Despite the miniscule crop in 2016 in most spots, the quality is also superb. I, and the producers, of course, are saddened by the scant few bottles of delicious juice that will be available next year.
