    QOTD; Just an £8 Albert Bichot (Bourg. AOC), wasn’t great. Definitely need to throw a few more bones to get something a bit better!

    I love Pinots but trend to the move fruit driven US West Coast ones than the French earthy ones. QOTD-a few, mostly at wine tasting events. http://www.winelx.com

    So i was drinking a Chorey-les-beaune when i watched this and when you said that the berthoux smelt like throw up i couldn’t help agree because the tart raspberries and acidity really were reminiscent of that. Damn power of sugestion. Much like the Berthoux this wine was a pass

    This is a great episode. I’m in the process of stocking my cellar and right now my palate is in Burgundy. Whites and reds, doesn’t matter, I’ve been drinking quite a bit of Louis Latour lately.

    QOTD… I have had several bottles of Burgundy, but most have been from the same producer and same wine. I am branching out and this gives me an affordable option.
