2016 World of Pinot Noir Seminar – The Wines of Maison Joseph Drouhin

Post this show to your favorite social network

16wopndrouhin1main.jpg

Founded in Beaune in 1880, Joseph Drouhin was an enterprising young man who came from the Chablis region at the age of 22, and settled in Beaune. His son Maurice succeeded him and began to establish a vineyard domaine for the House, purchasing land in some outstanding appellations such as Clos des Mouches and Clos de Vougeot.

Robert Drouhin succeeded Maurice in 1957, and gave the domaine its present size, acquiring many vineyards, especially in Chablis where he was able to recognize the true potential. He was one of the first in Burgundy to introduce “culture raisonnée” (doing away with pesticides and other chemicals) and to build a laboratory of enology run by Laurence Jobard, the very first woman enologist in Burgundy.

Philippe, Véronique, Laurent and Frédéric are Robert and Françoise Drouhin’s four children, and all work in the family business. Join us as we listen to Frédéric explain the history and the wines of this famous Burgundian domaine.

Maison Ilan – with Ray Walker

Post this show to your favorite social network

16ilan1main.jpg

Back in 2009, we spent some time talking to a young man from California who was headed to Burgundy to make wine …or more properly stated, to make Burgundy! Ray Walker has now been making wines in Nuits-Saint-Georges for the last seven vintages under his label, Maison Ilan. So, we thought we’d check in with Ray to have him reflect back on the wide ranging experiences he’s encountered, both the ups and the downs of making wine in France, and apparently more formidable, selling and delivering that wine to consumers in many countries, including the U.S.

Join us as we talk with Ray about Maison Ilan, the pitfalls he’s experienced, and how he views the future of his label.

This seminar from the 2015 World of Pinot Noir is the perfect bookend to the “Latitudes and Longitudes” seminar, where we heard from Pinot producers from around the world. This time, we’re back to the “homeland” of Pinot Noir – France’s Burgundy region, and specifically the wines of Domaine Marc Roy in Gevrey-Chambertin.

Join us as we listen to Jancis Robinson speak with vigneron Alexandrine Roy, of Burgundy’s Domaine Marc Roy, about the vineyards and wines from recent vintages of this famed Gevrey-Chambertin producer.

Post this show to your favorite social network

15wopngevrvosne1main.jpg

The wines of Burgundy always elicit emotions – and frequently more than just the aromas and the flavors. In this seminar from the 2015 World of Pinot Noir, the two presenters conduct a mock trial to determine which of two Côte de Nuits powerhouses has the better wines. The case of Gevrey-Chambertin vs. Vosne Romanée will be determined by the jury (the audience, in this case). Unlike the result of most trials, despite the outcome, there’s really no loser here. It’s ALL Burgundy!

So, join us as we listen to Don Kinnan and Nick Poletto argue their respective cases for ‘who is best – Gevrey-Chambertin or Vosne Romanée?’

One of the biggest thrills in wine, is finding bottles that perform above their price level. And, while Burgundy is not particularly known for bargains, there are still some excellent quality-to-price values to be found from several, shall we say, “lost” appellations and villages. One of these appellations is the Côte Chalonnaise. These wines are often sought out by knowledgeable Burgundy enthusiasts who enjoy their value and pleasure, while saving their more expensive, high profile bottles for special occasions.

So, join us as we listen to Don Kinnan give us a closer look at the wines from Burgundy’s Côte Chalonnaise.

The Art and Science of Wine

Post this show to your favorite social network

15concept1main.jpg

Is wine more art than science, or vice versa? Arguably, it takes both art AND science to create and deliver the optimum wine-drinking experience. So, we were quite pleased when both these gentlemen came to the studio to talk with us about their winemaking efforts. Coming from different backgrounds (wine vs. food science), each brings a uniquely different approach to “assembling” a final wine.

Join us as we get our geek on about wine with Anthony Weytjens and Alexandre Remy. In addition to the great discussion, maybe we’ll even find out if a wine can be greater than the sum of its parts.

2014 World of Pinot Noir Seminar – Burgundy & Oregon: Parallels in Latitudes – a Look at 45º North, Part 2 – Burgundy

Post this show to your favorite social network

15wopn14_12main.jpg

Part 2 of the 2014 WOPN seminar on Oregon and Burgundy takes us to Pinot Noir’s homeland in Burgundy, France. We were very fortunate to have Louis Jadot’s Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, present a vertical of the Premier Cru vineyard, Clos des Ursules, which included vintages: 2010, 2009, 2008, 2005, 2003, 1997, 1990, and 1985.

The Clos des Ursules is a walled site within the Vignes Franches climat, at the southern end of Beaune’s group of Premier Cru vineyards near the commune boundary with Pommard. Being on the lower eastern side of the Montagne-Saint-Desire hill, the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines here make the most of the morning and early afternoon sunshine in Burgundy’s marginal climate.

Join us as we hear from Frédéric Barnier about the Clos des Ursules climat, the various vintages he presented for tasting, and discussion of the past few “short” vintages in Burgundy.

2014 World of Pinot Noir Seminar – Burgundy & Oregon: Parallels in Latitudes – a Look at 45º North, Part 1 – Oregon

Post this show to your favorite social network

14wopn11main.jpg

Pinot Noir’s homeland will always be in Burgundy, France. But, outside of Burgundy, is there actually a more “suited” place for growing and making world class Pinot Noir? Obviously, this is a subjective matter – one for which there may be no definitive answer. Why? Because, as we already know, every ounce of grape-growing soil is different – all across the globe. Pinot there, is not Pinot here. That being said, is there some hidden meaning in the preponderance of Burgundian visits made to Oregon? Or, how about the purchases of Oregon vineyard land by Burgundians? What’s up with that?

Listen in, and judge for yourself, as a panel of Oregon winemakers from the 2014 WOPN discuss their local their soils, processes, and thoughts for growing and producing the best Pinot Noir possible in the New World. Panelists include: Moderator – Katherine Cole, Robert brittan – Brittan Vnyds, Steve goff – Colene Clemens, Rebecca pittock-shouldis – Ghost Hill, James Fry – Trisaetum, Rajat parr – Evening Land, and Lynn Penner-Ash – Penner-Ash. We guarantee your first impulse will be to go out and buy some Oregon Pinots!

(Editor’s note: due to technical difficulties, the quality for the first 10 minutes of the seminar portion of the recording is poor. However, it does become resolved thereafter.)

The Wines of Chablis – with Domaine Laroche

Post this show to your favorite social network

14laroche1main.jpg

Located in northeast France, the Chablis region was annexed by the Dukes of Burgundy in the fifteenth century. While it is considered the northernmost extension of the Burgundy wine region, it is separated from the Côte d’Or by the Morvan hills. In fact, the town of Beaune located is more than 70 miles away. This makes Chablis relatively isolated from other winemaking regions. In fact, the southern vineyards of Champagne are actually its closest winemaking neighbor.

Before becoming part of Burgundy, Chablis was once considered part of Champagne, and the two regions share many climatic similarities. Chablis’ far northern location puts it at the extreme edge of sustainable viticulture – too much rain and a lower temperature produces wines quite high in acidity; too much heat produces wines that are flabby with too little acids. But, when the weather is right, the wines have gorgeous acidity and flinty flavors.

The history of Domaine Laroche began in 1850 and is closely related to the development of Chablis and its vineyards. At that time, there were neither legal delimitation of vineyards, nor growth classification. Laroche and other producers producers were simply heirs to the Cistercian monks.

Join us as we talk with Grégory Viennois, Wine and Vineyard Director
 at Domaine Laroche about the geography and terroir of the region, and what makes the wines of Chablis so special.

The Wines of Beaujolais – with Château des Jacques

Post this show to your favorite social network

14chdesjacques1main.jpg

Does Beaujolais have an emotional side? Guillaume de Castelnau certainly thinks so. As Director and winemaker of Château des Jacques, Maison Louis Jadot’s beautiful Beaujolais property, Guillaume is able to easily wax poetic about both the region but especially about the Gamay grape.

Located north of Lyon in eastern France, Beaujolais overlaps Burgundy in the north and the Rhône Valley in the south. Vineyards run along the Saône River, on mostly granite soils. Here, Beaujolais Crus such as Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Régnié, Morgon, Chiroubles, Fleurie, Moulin-à-Vent, Chénas, Juliénas and Saint-Amour, have the high ground just above the Beaujolais Village classification.

Join us as we talk with Monsieur Castelnau about the history, geology and wine of the region. It’s an interesting new perspective on one of the most affordable of French wine regions.

The Louis Jadot name, as well as its readily identifiable label should be very familiar, even to casual wine lovers. Established by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1859 in the Burgundy region of France, Maison Louis Jadot has grown over the past 150 years to own 280 acres of the Côte d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

In 2010, chief winemaker Jacques Lardière retired after 42 years with Louis Jadot. Taking over the reins from Monsieur Lardière, winemaker Frédéric Barnier has been responsible for the entire winemaking team of Maison Louis Jadot since 2010.

Join us as we talk with Technical Director Frédéric Barnier about the challenges he’s faced, including the past few “short” vintages in Burgundy, current pricing, and the premox issue.

The 2005 vintage in Burgundy has been hailed as…dare we say, ‘the vintage of the century.’ Hyperbole? Maybe. But one thing’s for certain – it’s been a long time that a Burgundy vintage has been as highly regarded – maybe since 1978! The obvious question is – are they ready to drink yet? And if not now – when?

We’re back with Part 2 of the Insider Wine seminar from the 2014 World of Pinot Noir. Previously held in the Central Coast city of Shell Beach, the event moved to the gorgeous Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara beginning this year.

In a return engagement from his outstanding Burgundy seminar at the 2013 WOPN, Don Kinnan, CSS, CWE, and the lead instructor for the French Wine Society’s new Master Burgundy Certificate program, led us through a few of these “insider” appellations, including Marsannay, Fixin, Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-Les-Beaune, Monthelie, Auxey-Duresses, Chassagne-Montrachet (a red!), Santenay, and the mountain of Corton. Of course, the seminar included a short history of the viticulture and principal vineyards and producers in each of these villages. Plus, 12 wines were selected to represent the best terroirs from these villages, and included a tasting of the 2005 Corton and 2006 Corton-Charlemagne.

Join us as we listen to Don Kinnan provide insight into the lesser sampled “insider wines” of Burgundy, all in Part 2 of: Insider Wines of the Côte d’Or.

The Vineyards of Pouilly Fuissé – with Domaine J. A. Ferret

Post this show to your favorite social network

13ferret1main.jpg

Founded in 1840, Domaine Ferret is located in the Mâconnais region of Burgundy, in the commune of Fuissé. Here, half-way between Beaune and Lyon, Chardonnay is Pouilly Fuissé’s only grape variety. While it is the best-known part of the Mâconnais, there are currently no Premier Cru vineyards within the AOC – something Domain Ferret would like to change.

Of all Burgundy’s appellations, Pouilly-Fuissé has the most varied geology. The geological rifts and slopes are more accentuated, the spectrum of rocks present is the most diverse within the Maconnais, and the soils can be poor, made up of hard limestone and even calcite, but they can also be richer clays, based on alluvial marl deposits, schist’s and even volcanic-sedimentary pebbles. More than 330 million years separate the most ancient of these rocks from the most recent deposits. These foundation rocks, located on the eastern fringe of the Beauregard plateau, are made up of limestone deposited by ancient lakes.

A precise knowledge of the region’s most terroirs forms the basis of the parcel by parcel vinification for which the Domaine is known. In particular, the classification of Tête de Cru and Hors Classe were established by Jeanne Ferret. She was among the first to bottle wines at the Domaine. Her daughter, Colette, followed in her footsteps, developing the Domaine’s reputation for excellence. When Louis Jadot acquired the 18-hectare property in 2008, its goal was to continue working in the tradition established by the Ferrets.

Since 1840 Domaine Ferret has had an uninterrupted tradition of women as directors/winemakers, a tradition that has been continued by Audrey Braccini since 2008. Join us as we talk with Audrey, about the geography, the history, and the wines of Domaine Ferret from Pouilly Fuissé.

Meet Soliste Cellars – with Claude Koeberle

Post this show to your favorite social network

13soliste1main.jpg

Claude Koeberle is quite a fascinating study and has been called a “force of nature.” He is opinionated (“Many of California’s fruit-forward wines do not pair well with food”), devoted to Pinot Noir with religious fervor (“Cabernet Sauvignon is an evil weed”), and talkative. He could impress you with his culinary accomplishments (Apprenticed under Paul Bocuse and Alain Chappell, became the youngest 3 Star Michelin Chef in Paris, Chef at Ma Maison and L’Orangerie in Los Angeles, James Beard Award as a master chef, French Laundry partner, and one of the driving forces behind Creative Culinary Concepts, Inc., and K World Cuisine, Inc.), but he would rather talk at length about how he has taken old world (Burgundian) beliefs and applied them to produce wines with finesse and balance that work in harmony with fine cuisine.

Together with long time friend and business partner, Donald Plumley and their respective spouses, Claude started Soliste in 2005 with the release of a Sonatera Vineyard Pinot Noir. The name Soliste is derived from the special barrel or “soliste” that Burgundian winemakers reserve for their family and friends.

Join us as we talk with Claude Koeberle about his culinary career, and how it led him on a journey into wine.
