Côte d'Or

We had some great tastings of white in the Côte d'Or. Lydie Alzingre, at Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot, described the 2016s as having more acidity than 2015 - 'straighter' wines. Guillaume Boillot at Domaine Henri Boillot said he felt 2016 is a very 'saline' vintage. Jean-François Germain was trying to smile bravely, but with 20% of a normal harvest, was finding it hard. Nevertheless his, as well as Remi Jobard's Meursaults are outstanding.
