Unknown Burgundy

November 17, 2009

UnknownBurgundyDue to the right circumstances and a good opportunity, my business partner and his family chose to live in France for a period of two years while the kids were still young and flexible enough to make the most of the experience…hey, why not?  With the internet, the telecommute is easy.
Je m’escuse…c’est facile.

The upside for us here, is that with every return visit, there is a delightful array of locally produced, small lot reds (pinot noir), whites (chardonnay), and cremants (one, the other, or both as a bubbly) tucked into the checked luggage.
Their adventures in their own neighbor hood, and to other places Burgundian are chronicled here:

During a visit this past autumn, Eric was kind enough to document our own escapades in vinification, in an effort to dismay their neighbors in Beaune, and once and for convince them that wine making anywhere outside of Burgundy must be done by infidels.  Check out the entry:   Wine Making in Vermont

At some point once the video is cleaned up, I’ve got a head to head tasting of some Cassis; alone, in Cremant, and in Marc de Bourgongne.   At some point we’ll pull out the little stash of Jura wines, and do a segment for some of the folks in the Vayner Nation that have been pleading for Gary Vaynerchuk to do such a show.

Ciao for now.
