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.
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.
