Taille en cours au Domaine Jessiaume.
Currently pruning at Domaine Jessiaume.
Probably one of the the best Pinot Noir produced in Italy in many years. Vino che se possibile ogni volta mi piace di più, tutto giocato tra profondità e allungo, polpa, acidità e sale non senza un ventaglio di piccoli frutti rossi che sembrano disegnati sul vetro. Podere Santa Felicita, Cuna 2014.
On the second day of winemas…
A bottle of Cab Sav from McLaren Vale, Australia.
Dark black fruits, mint, cedar. 8/10.
Source for £9.99 as part of a mixed six from @majesticwine
Side note: Did you hear (announced today) that @vivino are now offering a flat-fee delivery service in the U.K.? All of your delivery needs for £32/year. They are going to be incredibly disruptive to the wine world in the next few years...

Seriously, can you beat this sunset? Half bottles are generally not as good as standard bottles, but this wasn’t the case with this half bottle of 1990 Château Haut-Brion. This baby was screaming with intensity from the get-go. The dark, brooding fruit and smoky tobacco were front and center, as expected. Perhaps the acidity was a bit high (While the total acidity never changes throughout the life of a wine, the perceived acidity does!). On to the next sunset...
The Hotel-Dieu, nowadays called Hospices de Beaune should be a definite stop on any Burgundian trip. The Beaune city itself is a cutie, with little gems hidden between all the touristic Cafés and boutique. Any wine book fan would fall in love with the exhaustive selection you can find in the libraries shelves and any wine map fan would fall in love with the multitude of precise and historic map of the region. Of course, I’m an amateur of both and it was heaven.
The Hospices de Beaune is the main attraction of the village itself. What started out as a hospital foundation from the Middle Ages, the Hospices de Beaune is now one of France’s most prestigious historic monuments. Besides the historic and colourful architectural appeal of the monument, is a strong implication in the wine industry of the region and it all started with generosity.
In 1457, Guillemette Levernier made the first gift of vineyards to the Hospices de Beaune, and this tradition was to continue for five centuries. Today, the wine estate is around 60 hectares, of which 50 are devoted to Pinot Noir and the rest to Chardonnay. Entrusted to 22 winemakers handpicked by its manager, this exceptional vineyard accounts for 85% of premiers crus and Grands crus sold at auction on the third Sunday in November. The sale, today organised by Christie’s auction house, is the most famous wine charity auction in the world. The proceeds of the sale are used to improve the hospital’s equipment and in the conservation of the Hôtel Dieu.
The Hospices de Beaune has an iconic status in burgundy as well as a well-developed influence and ownership in the industry. Its symbolism is widespread around the world, its hospital center has spread health, help and the auction is an annual meeting very valued of professionals of the vine and the wine. 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
