2006 top red burgundies - TNs
10 Sep 2009 by Jancis Robinson
Below are my tasting notes on the 300+ premiers crus and grands crus red burgundies from the 2006 vintage tasted blind in Beaune at the end of last month. Tomorrow I will publish details of some average scores by village and a list of the group's favourite wines.  On Saturday I’ll be publishing an overview of this vintage, with a list of my own top scorers, in both the FT and Free for all. See Tasting burgundy with Clive for the physical circumstances of this tasting.  (I'm illustrating this article with a picture of a Burgundian wall in sunshine, as that was the view I had throughout my three days of tasting. )...
