 Tasted by BradKNYC on 3/8/2013: Howard Camhi returns to NY and we celebrate with Champagne, Burgundy, Barolo, Rhones and a German Riesling. (My place.): Started off entirely too oaky for my tastes and was terrible with the scallop dish as it made them taste like bad oysters. Stuck with the Chablisienne for that course, which gave the wine some time to integrate and the oak did finally die down a bit and was pretty well integrated by the end of the evening. Richness and power on the palate with ripe pineapple, stone fruits, apples and a touch of toasted nuts. With air the minerals and acidity started to come up and helped counter the strong butterscotch character. Nice depth and balance and the mineral notes carry nicely on the finish. Mature and probably should be consumed sooner rather than later. I'm actually a bit surprised I ended up liking it as much as I did. Low A-. (1316 views)
 Tasted by Burgaddict on 7/21/2009 & rated 96 points: Leiden tasting July 2009: My first Montrachet. Impressive wine, very balanced, great weight, kept on developing after opening showing a different taste and nose in time. Golden colour. Nose started minerally with some nuttiness, later on much fuller with different nuts, butter and citrus, in the end nuts and more developed fruit (pineapple and pear). Taste: lovely balance between acidity, fruits, different nuts and touches of vanilla, caramel and cream in different layers with a mineral core, so much going on, sometimes difficult to describe, changing all the time. Followed by an finish that seemed endless and gave the opportunity to think back at what you had actually tasted in the different layers of the wine. Wonderful. (1574 views)

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates
