    TN Bourgogne-Aligoté

    Let’s put Aligoté in the spot today!⁣ ⁣ Aligoté, Burgundy’s ‘other’ white grape variety, may be very much Chardonnay’s underdog but in a fine year, when ripeness can compensate for its characteristic acidity, Aligoté is not short of champions and is arguably a beneficiary of climate change. The...

    TN Domaine Odoul-Coquard my favourite emerging Burgundy producer

    Odoul-Coquard is one of my favourite emerging producers in Burgundy. First time I came across this domaine was just a couple of years ago when I was preparing for Morey St. Denis grand tasting. The idea was to show the best producers, the best climats and the best vintages. As easy as that...

    Is White Burgundy Still Top Dog?

    Apologies for the length of this ramble. The TN - NW chardonnay v Burgundy shoot out tasting sparked a couple of very interesting side debates, but mainly the one about whether White Burgundy still deserves the title of ‘The Greatest Ever White Wine’. Assuming it ever did? If it doesn’t then...

    Experience with 2012 Red Burgundies?

    Currently tucking into a 2012 Bourgogne Rouge "Oka" from Domaine Arlaud... they've changed the naming on the label from the first time I picked this up at the local merchants when it said "Domaine Arlaud", but now has their "funky" A &Arlaud logo. It started off very grumpy and uncouth... oaky...

    Edinburgh Offline Burgundy & Grouse

    Great evening. Wines and menu below. Thanks to Chris for pulling this one together. The grouse was lovely for me, not too well hung but enough to give a rich depth of flavour.
