There’s a good splash of Pinot Blanc in here, which is simply a strain of Pinot Noir that has gone albino and lost all color. I find it gives a unique chalky texture, with which the Chardonnay blends well. Highly unique and enjoyable, it can also age like a champ.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:
1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
