First report from Burgundy

I’m back from my sojourn in Burgundy, Alsace and Champagne. As I indicated in my last post I will not be putting all the notes up instantly, rather two entries per day until I’ve caught up. Here is the general drinking from Sunday night.

Volnay Clos de la Bousse d’Or 1995, Domaine Pousse d’Or

Really perfumed and scented with soft old fruit and a floral/Jasmine aroma. The palate is just beautiful. Loads of fruit with real elegance and refinement. Delicious. In the full flow of providing pleasure.

Vouvray Cuvee Constance 1995, Huet

Rotting wool, carrots and apricots on the nose. Very complex with a real earthy tang. The palate is painfully intense with incredible acidity, rich earthiness and lots of apricot fruit. Real Vouvray silkiness which is quite lovely. A tour de force from Domaine Huet.
