The Rise of Burgundy's Other White Wine

Chardonnay has long dominated in Burgundy, but local vignerons are now promoting Aligoté, too.

Chablis et le grand Auxerrois

Les paysages sont magnifiques entre vallées, plateaux et collines… c’est un archipel de petits vignobles (Joigny, Saint-Bris, Vézelay, Irancy, Epineuil) couronnant un roi, Chablis, dont les vignes épousent toutes les expositions.

Prices of red Burgundy boosted by a surge in white wine production

Prices of red Burgundy boosted by a surge in white wine production

Over the past few weeks, prices of Pinot noir labelled under the regional Burgundy appellation have soared by 30%. “A distinction should be made between the generic Burgundy appellation which has gone from 900 to 1,200 euros a cask and AOC Burgundy Côte d'Or, which is doing very well, and has risen from 1,100 to 1,200 euros a cask”, reports Jérôme Prince, chairman of the greater Burgundy wine and spirit brokers’ association. With this year’s red wine crop below par in terms of volume, the surge in prices is due both to properties hanging on to their wines and negociants trying to cover their needs.

MENETOU-SALON AND THE SAGA OF JACQUES COEUR

MENETOU-SALON AND THE SAGA OF JACQUES COEUR

The alchemist. He who makes something out of nothing: taking scraps of metal and creating gold. One of the most renowned French merchants and political benefactors, Jacques Coeur, was not only an investor and businessman but was also rumored to have partaken in the tomfoolery of alchemy. We now know that if these claims were true, that this man, seen as an early emblem of French mercantile prowess, whose visage was briefly portrayed on the 50 franc bill, was in fact a counterfeiter, a charlatan, a fraud, a fake, a deceit-- okay, you get the picture.

Het vreemde is dat ik er in de Franse kranten niets over heb gelezen. Zou het wel waar zijn? Waarschijnlijk een opname van een film. grinning smiley

Why Clos du Rois is a case for upgrading Coulanges-la-Vineuse

Why Clos du Rois is a case for upgrading Coulanges-la-Vineuse

Will Coulanges-la-Vineuse, one of Burgundy’s lesser-known appellations, be getting a designation upgrade in the same way that Pouilly-Fuissé has in the south? LM Archer thinks so, especially given the quality exhibited by the wines of Domaine du Clos du Roi that sometimes blend Pinot Noir with ancient grape variety César. There is even one Pinot Noir that is non-vintage and is made by blending at least three different vintages together in one cuvée.

Nic Clerc: how Bourgogne’s “Regional appellations are a genuine steal”

Against all the odds, a solitary one-man Armit team has been visiting its vignerons to bring us insight direct from Burgundy. Nicolas Clerc MS was in the fortuitous position of holidaying in France and, by a stroke of luck and timing, was able to make that crucial diversion to the Route des Grands Crus. Having tasted a comprehensive range of Burgundy 2019, Clerc brings us the inside view into what is proving to be one of the most singular vintages that Burgundy has experienced in recent decades.

Long Read: The dry truth of drought in Burgundy

As if 2020 wasn’t bad enough, France faced a drought so bad that water restrictions were put in place. Nowhere was the lack of water felt more keenly than in Burgundy, where irrigation is illegal.
