Lunch at Hospices de Beaune

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.

Hospices de Beaune  lunch, Palais de Congres

November 17, 1995

 

1992 Meursault-Charmes cuvee de Bahèzre de Lanlay

A little soapy and insipid. Too sweet. Lacking in matte rand structure.

 

1991 Beaune Cuvee Guigone de Salins

Not bad. A little light in structure, but nice notes of spices and pepper.

 

1988 Pommard, cuvée Cyrot-Chaudron

This has a more smooth and rich style than the 1985 – more fluid and élégant. Both are stunning
