Background

Owner/winemaker Blair Pethel recently described his winemaking approach in a new thread on technical approaches to oxidized burgundies on the Squires Board site. You will find the comments at Post #58 (on page 2) of the following thread: http://dat.erobertparker.com/bboard/showthread.php?p=2827548#post2827548

I've invited Blair to add the information as "Winemaker Comments" to this page. Stay tuned for updates.

Wines

2007

  • Corton Charlemagne (May 2013): outstanding example of CC, not oxidized [R Younger]
  • Corton Charlemagne (Sept 2013): Not oxidized and best CC easily in horizontal of 6 CC's [R Younger]
  • Puligny Montrachet Sous le Puits (September 2013) - very good, not oxidized. But advanced. I would drink up. [Note I bought this recently so don't know how much of the advanced nature was due to premox and how much to prior storage.] (Howard Cooper)
