Back to the Terroir

Bourgogne, Côte d'Or, March 2007

Kilian Fitzpatrick and Nikolai Vogel Undercover in a Vineyard in the Evening

[ German - German ]

After a break we returned: The Côte d'Or hasn't let us go, and of course we've been watching its wines over the recent years. Shortly before we arrived March was spring like and sunny, but the winter turned it into coldness again. Wine and rain drove us into the cellars - but we wanted to go there anyway. There the 2005 still rested in its barrels. It is going to be grand - almost everybody says. A prognosis, but founded. The 2006 is boding well, too.

The 2004s are lighter, have good Terroir - where succeeded - but can turn out a bit soft and thin, too. The tasted 2003s presented themselves completely atypical, almost as if they were from the New World. Thick and with fruit boiled down by the sun. If the Burgundy has to expect that effect by the climate change, then it might lose its finesse.

In addition to our article about our this year's visit to Burgundy, our updated Vintage Reference is available. And for Burgundy beginners there is our Introduction.
