A conversation with Nigel Greening of Felton Road and his 'benchmark' vintage...

Since purchasing Felton Road in 2000 owner Nigel Greening has overseen an incredible revolution at the estate, including an early move to organic and, later, biodynamic viticulture. Years of rigorous but environmentally respectful viticultural practices and sensitive, hands-off winemaking has elevated them to near legendary status in New Zealand fine wine circles. In the process of this meteoric rise, they have also become a worldwide fine wine beacon of sustainability.

Justerini & Brooks forms new partnership with South African producer Storm Wines

We are delighted to be the newly appointed agents for Storm Wines, from South Africa’s Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. For a number of years we have been buying and drinking these wines but it was not until we visited their small, family estate on home turf that we appreciated the attention to detail and passion that goes in to producing their seemingly effortless Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

2010 White Burgundy

2010 White Burgundy

Tuesday 9th July 2019
by Giles Burke-Gaffney

Last week Burgundy-specialist merchants and journalists gathered to taste 29 White Burgundies from the 2010 vintage, an experience that was impressive and, dare I say, surprising. The element that was most encouraging being the absence of premoxed wines. 

Almost all were in good condition, except a slightly tired, bruised-fruit Pernot Belicard Puligny that may have just been a bad bottle and a Terre de Velle Puligny that was just about holding on. The regional wines, at the lowest end of the quality pyramid, were tiring a little but nothing more than you would have expected and still showed rather well considering.  Certain wines displayed  more unctuosity alcohol and exotic fruit, recalling the botrytis that affected some of the crop, these were fine and still very much alive now but did not necessarily offer excitement or suggest further ageing potential.
