The Burgundy tasting at the St. Andrew’s Club, Toronto – March 17, 2009

Some forty-two Burgundy producers were showing off their wines on St. Patricks Day at the St. Andrew’s Club, Toronto.

I’m still going through my notes but let it be said that one wine that definitely did it for me was the 2006 Mazoyères Chambertin by Domaine Taupenot-Merme. Hefty dark fruit, sour cherry, kirsch and leather notes with a lush replay of cherry on the palate, firm tannins and a meaty, long finish. I’d say put it down for another 5 years and it will sing!

More to come so look out….
