2014 Burgundies: Report from the Vineyards -- Day 10

The morning started with a tasting at Bouchard Père & Fils. The reds from the Côte de Beaune were mostly badly hit by hail. Bouchard did a good job with the material it had and did not overextract. The Pommard-Rugiens (badly hit by hail) and Le Corton (not much hail) were the standout wines. With no hail on the Côte de Nuits, the wines were on the whole better, with the Nuits-Cailles and Vosne-Suchots being especially good. (Continue reading here.)
