It is lovely, the Cote d’Azur and a rather indulgent 3 weeks of holies is just what you need to catch up on lost ZZZZZZs, read some trashy paperbacks, lol about on the beach enjoying the spectacular view from “Plage Les Pirates”, Juan~Les~Pins out to the superyachts moored out in the sparkling Med in front [...]
There was cause for celebration in North West London yesterday morning when a small plot of vines approximately 3 hectares (7.5 acres) became the first internationally recognised Appellation for fine wine in London.The South East facing slope between Willesden Junction and Wormwood Scrubs was granted A.C. status by The International Terroirs Society (TITS) after an application was submitted by owner Jack Scott in August of 2008.“It has been a long road and there have been many ups and downs but for our vineyard to be the first A.C. in London is a great honour that makes it all worthwhile”.
Meursault 2008 by Philippe Chavy or Meursault ‘Les Grands Charrons’ 2008 by Domaine Bachey~Legros
I’m really not sure who won the day here, The Chav or The Charrons, but I tasted both on Monday with Mr. Round MW and they were just delish!
Having bought and just LOVED Philippe Chavy’s white Burgs in almost every vintage since 1998, I can’t big his wines up enough, but, strong competition has arrived in the wines of Christiane and ‘Les Boys’ at Bachey~Legros. They are new to us and are not well known in England, but, they make such sensational wines that they will be – believe me! Mr. Round, MW, is so smitten by Bachey~Legros that he’s quite cross he didn’t discover the Domaine himself ….. there’ll be others, I know!
