Burgundy Tasting this Friday, 8th

We got in some 2006 wines from Philippe Chavy, namely the Puligny Montrachet and the Meursault Narvaux and we will be doing a tasting on them this weekend in the shop in Dalkey. Also on tasting is a cracking Montagny 1er Cru from a producer called Laurant Cognard. This is a wine that appeared in nearly every decent restaurant we were in when we were in Burgundy in May, so we tasted it a few times over there and took a punt on it. We are very pleased with it, but we will see what people think this weekend.

Pop in for a taste if you are around - it's free!

Wow! Looks great and worth a DART ride out to Dalkey.

Unfortunately, though I'll be away.

I'm sorry to have missed this, I was out of the country last week. How did the wines taste? Were they well recieved?
