Why do you only write about the Grand Crus?



Do I? Wine writers, or at least I as one, get told that the focus in the wine industry, and by us writers or critics are too much on the fancy labels, the big names and vineyards. That we should care more about the smaller, great value for money producers, or even regions. I actually think most of us do. But do our readers?

Well, I’m going to turn the discussion. When I post something, I like to follow the traffic. I can’t do that everywhere I write but I can do that on some of my publishing. To see what is of interest to my readers. And they are from all over the place. All over the world. Just today on one of my blogs there have been readers from the US, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Norway off course, Sweden, Denmark, the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Russia, India, China, Japan and Australia. Even Kuwait. All kinds of readers with all kinds of interests, in the world of wine. But it is the same trend as in sports, fashion, cars, movies or music. I have far more visits to whatever I publish on the so called best. If I review a, say Charmes-Chambertin from a famous name 92 points, and have another posting with a 94 points Charmes-Chambertin from a less known producer, or as known but not quite as attractive to have on your table (everybody knows Toyota but Mercedes is more fancy, right?), guess which one have the most readers?

Because people read about what they think is great, or the best, rather than about something less familiar, or less exciting, right? Those who do read about it may buy the scoop, and more often than not, those who do tend to write to me or talk to me if we meet up face to face, they mention those scoops. How brilliant it was to get to that first. And how incredible it was that it wasn’t sold out right away. Well, it would have been if as many readers bothered reading about it as they did with the one with slightly lesser quality for probably twice the money. And that is with fine wine. Guess what happens when you go further down the food chain? With exceptions, as there are always exceptions, there are even fewer visitors.

Sometimes I write about real finds, gems that are superb value for money, from grape varieties I might not even have heard of, and the wine is just seductive and flirting. Yet with glowing review, and for little money. Almost no sales. The wine disappears from the market (at least my local market). Sales wasn’t good enough for the importer to keep it. It’s not fancy enough for a majority of readers. They need labels. They need Nike or Rolex or Bentley to show off. The Bentley without the badge isn’t fancy enough even if it out performs. Because their friends won’t be impressed. I hear about it from sales, and even see it from the traffic. I remember Jancis Robinson MW once said something like. “-If I was really influential, Riesling would be much more popular than it is”. Do readers want bling? Yes, quite a few of them do. Luckily there are exceptions. But there could be, and should be more of them.

2010 Albert Bichot Latricières-Chambertin

Albert Bichot has been making more and more scented wines with less wood or at least up front woody notes lately. The nose is more floral and delicate, the palate has finer fruity notes, less rough texture. Especially the wines from the Long-Depaquit and Clos Frantin estates or wines made at these two vineries from bought grapes, are now really serious wines that should not be overlooked by the wine collectors. Here is a 2010 Latricières-Chambertin tasted recently.

2010 Albert Bichot Latricières-Chambertin
Bright ruby. Scented, red berries, fresh, detailed, spices, nuanced, lovely nose, needed half an hour in the glass to open and it should have been decanted. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, detailed, elegant, nuanced, red berries, lovely balance, playful, long. 93

Superb whites from Vincent Girardin


When I taste the wines of Vincent Girardin and I mostly tend to taste whites, I notice how much better they show with quite a bit of air. They need time in decanter or you really have to look into these wines and take them seriously, otherwise their sheere balance and elegance will be the only things you notice, as very rarely anything jumps out. But they tend to have layers of bright crisp fruit with a superb minerals backbone. And stunning length. If you love Burgundies and don't have to have the smartest labels in front of you, just the pure Burgundy juice, here you go. Prices are not so bad, yet. This producer is still under the radar for many.

Change of style since 2007 becomming brighter and crisper and less woody and even more fine-tuned from 2010. 2014 is stunning from here, and 2015 will probably be just behind but the wines still need time. I tasted some of these just a few months back and they have already become more detailed and focused. Brilliant flight below. Prices are for Norwegian Monopoly buyers.
