Who & Why

The prices for Burgundy wines are high, so California is always an alternative. We taste two wines that should both be great.

There are Frühburgunder and Pinot Noir.

This time there are Burgundy Grand Cru - Clos Vougeot and Charmes Chambertin.

We have Roederer Cristal, a Spanish Orange wine, an awesome Pinot Noir and a Burgundy.

Today we have 3 great Chardonnay from California and Burgundy.

We had the opportunity to taste some wines at a consignment.

It's hard to find affordable red burgundy. Luckily we got some bottles donated by a friend. If you search hard enough you can find great affordable burgundies.

Three old fine wine - 1949 Clos Vougeot, 1959 Rauenthaler Gehrn Riesling TBA, 1971 Bensheimer Streichling Riesling TBA - were donated by a friend.

This time: Chateau de Beaucastel, Jean-Claude Bachelet, Jaboulet Aine and Castello dei Rampolla.

A few new wines from the last presence auction and tried and tested ones from the cellar.

Let's have a look at Jean Pernet Champagne, Heymann-Löwenstein Riesling Uhlen R, two great Reds from Burgundy and perhaps the best Red from Austria.

We taste two sensational old wines from Piedmont and Burgundy, Marchesi di Barolo 1949 Barolo Gia Opera Pia Riserva and Vandermeulen 1955 Clos de Tart.

Again a friend spent two old Burgundy wines.

Many Burgundy wines are too expensive and sometimes simply bad wines for the money. But there are always sensational bright spots, especially with older vintages. These wines do not come from our cellars but were sponsored by a friend.

We compared two Pinot Noir from Burgundy and California in the same price range.

This time we tasted 2007 Comtes de Champagne, a mature Grüner Veltliner, a classic Chablis, an unknown Californian wine, 1971 La Conseillante and 1967 Suduiraut.

This was a hedonistic evening with an Auslese RR from Koehler-Ruprecht and a Puligny-Montrachet from Jean-Claude Bachelet.

One sparkling and several white wines started a phantastic evening: a 100% Pinot Meunier Champagne, Burgundies from Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet and a great white from Piedmont of the Timorasso grape.

This is again an awesome wine from Jean-Claude Bachelet. We already had the Grand Cru (Various Whites from Rheingau and Burgundy), now it is time for one of his Premier Cru.

A Bienvenues Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru and two Rieslings made our evening. In total it were three great wines.

Pinot Noir from Burgundy versus Pinot Noir/Spätburgunder from Germany. And the best Dornfelder. There have been some disappointments, so not all wine made it onto the picture.

Burgundy is difficult, often you don't know what you get. Is this wine over, only still alive or a legend? Let's try it.
