Burgundy 2008: Top 3 from Bordeaux Index
Despite its name, Bordeaux Index put on an extensive 2008 Burgundy tasting.
It gave tasters the chance to compare Meursault Perrieres from three producers: Drouhin, Bouchard, and Louis Latour.
All showed well, but the Drouhin won by a nose:
Concentrated, packs a punch, has power and a slight earthiness, and a long white pepper finish. 17.5. £490 IB.
There were also 4 Batard Monrachets to compare, and again, Drouhin's impressed me the most, but it does cost £1635 IB!
The reds were less consistent, but the wines from Groffier were superb, notably the Chambolle-Musigny Sentiers: Generous seductive cherry nose. Sleek and silky, delicate and very refined, fresh, long, and so stylish. 17.5. £630 IB
