2007 Red Burgundy

  1. In the latest weekend drinking thread there were a few interesting posts on 2007 red Burgundies.

    Previously my experience has been very good with these wines - light, open, early drinkers.

    Some comments on the Weekend drinking thread certainly mirror my experiences this year that they seems to be closing down a touch.

    I've had a number of decent wines from Jadot's Corton Pouget, Montille NSG, to Chandon de Brailles Ile de Vergelleses among others and have certainly found them more bitter of late.

    Any other takes on this vintage? It has always been one that I've enjoyed.
  2. I didn’t buy any ‘07 Burgundy during EP but bought a fair bit in the secondary markets as prices were just too attractive. So far I am quite happy with those purchases.

    Cathiard Murgers - fantastic showings 4 to 5 years ago but seems to be shut at the moment.
    Fourrier Aux Moines - good wine but last bottle one year ago was in awkward phase.
    Mugneret Gibourg Chaignots - still showing great.
    Bruno Clavelier Beaux Monts - so good that I finished the 6-pack in record pace.
    Chevillon Vaucrains - single bottle purchase, civilized for a Vaucrains, enjoyed it.
    Chevillon Cailles - single bottle purchase, good wine.
    Drouhin Laroze Bonnes Mares - rubbish stuff, thin and acidic.
    Pousse d’Or 60 Ouvrées - good showing but not ready when opened a few years ago.
    Clos de Tart - ready but lack concentration of other vintages in a vertical tasting.

  3. Generalisations are obviously always difficult, but I have a few in the cellar and haven’t detected any sense of them closing down or fading (as a couple of recent notes I’ve seen have suggested). Recent examples tasted include Lafarge Volnay, a couple of Camus-Bruchon Savigny 1ers, Fourrier Gevrey VV and Combe Aux Moines and Mugnier Clos de la Marechale and all have been drinking well.
  4. A Santenay 1er cru Gravieres VV 2007 from Vincent Girardin was very good indeed tonight with no sense of being closed. Lots of cherry and strawberry fruit with good depth and length. Classic wine from a lesser Cote de Beaune commune.
