Dinner at Hospices de Beaune, November 1995

As I am researching my new book on Climate Change and Wine, I find myself drawn to my old tasting notes from when I fell under the spell of the voluptuous seductiveness, the savoury textures and the animal perfumes of the Burgundies of the ’80 and ‘90s. I cannot help but compare the alcohol levels and trace my notes throughout the decades.

 

Tasted at Dinner at Hospices de Beaune

November 18, 1995

 

1992 Clos Reyssie, Pouilly-Fuisse

 

1991 1er Cru Les Folatières, Puligny-Montrachet

Like Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Served with Sandre en écailles de pommes de terre.

 

1990 Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot

Selection du BIVB. Bien fait, sec et solide, bien structure. Served with La Salade de Sot-l’y-laisse de volaille au fond d’artichaut.

 

1992 Auxey-Duresses cuvee Boillot, Maison Duvergey-Taboureau à Meursault. Wonderful, spicy and lightly oaked. Well-balanced, fresh and personable.

 

1988 Beaune cuvée Rousseau-Deslandes

Maison Paul Chanson a Beaune. Rapeaux, sec et dur … moins intéressant, déséquilibre. Franchement, je pense que c’est simplement en décline, c’est tout. C’est perdu trop de sa jeunesse.

1989 Pommard cuvée Billardet, Maison Charles Vienot à Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Sublime. Parfait équilibre. Animal, notes de musc et cuir. Si séduisant. Pinot Noir as it should be. Served with les Grenadins de veau aux morilles – perfect marriage.

 

1989 Corton cuvee Docteur Peste, Maison Albert Bichot à Beaune.

Bien fait. Un peux serre. Il a encore du temps pour s’exprimer – il est ferme ce soir. Notes d’epices.

 

1990 Mazis-Chambertin cuvee madelaine Collignon, Maison Antonin Rodet à Mercurey, Parfait. J’adore cette appellation. Une texture soyeux et luxurieux. Thick velvet violet silk ribbons …

 

1985 Pommard cuvée Cyrot Chaudron, Maison Bouchard Père et Fils à Beaune.

Bien structuré, massive matière … un bête. Encore plein de vie et potentiel.
