2011 White Burgundy Tasting

A group of wine trade colleagues and customers convened once again for a horizontal Burgundy tasting last week at Medlar Restaurant. It was the turn of the 2011 vintage for White Burgundy and it threw up some interesting conclusions.

2007 Red Burgundy Tasting

A group of wine trade colleagues and customers convened for a horizontal Burgundy tasting last week at Medlar Restaurant. Following the 2011 White Burgundies (please see the previous blog post), we turned our attention to the 2007 vintage for Red Burgundy.

2004 White & Red Burgundy

The 2004 vintage in Burgundy is a tale of two colours… Since they were first released, the reds have been largely derided and described mainly as light to medium-bodied with high acidity and lacking the fruit found in more generous vintages (and in the worst cases, having green, stalky flavours which totally overpower the fruit). The whites, however, were very much lauded and were described as being classic and pure with firm acidities and direct, mineral palates.

Ditton Wine & Spirits are exactly that, wine traders. Since 2004, we have bought & sold fine wine on a daily basis, at fair and competitive prices.

The prices you see on the website are the prices you pay – with no hidden extras. The advice is free here too. We do everything possible to make sure we keep our costs down. There is no shop – we use the phone and email. We don’t employ a lot of staff and we don’t have a swanky London office.

As a result, we are able to operate on a much lower margin than many of our competitors. Our ever increasing network of negociants, distributors, wholesalers, retailers and private stock-holders means we will frequently bring you ‘impossible to match’ deals. We specialize in the best wine from Bordeaux, as well as a fast growing list of the most sought after wines from Burgundy, Champagne and Italy.
