It has often been written that mature red Burgundy does not last as long as claret.  From our experience and based upon the many tastings we have arranged. To date, the opposite seems to be true.
Tonight we will taste a range of Burgundy of the 1970’s from respected producers to again confirm this.

1979 Aloxe Corton – Jaffelin
1978 Pommard – Gros
1976 Chassagne Montrachet Rouge –
Ropiteau Frères
1976 Bourgogne – ‘Cuvée Louis Latour’
1971 Beaune 1er Cru ‘Monte Rouge Tête de Cuvée’ – Emile Voarick
1971 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru ‘Hauts-Doix’ – Drouhin
1971 Aloxe Corton ‘Special Cuvée’ – Terrand
