24 Jan -
Have now added some brief notes about individual producers and their recent news, or what they said about the 2008 vintage.

20 Jan -  I do intend to add some details about individual producers and their performances in 2008 to our massive tasting articles listed below but have been hijacked by a three-day blind tasting of 2006 bordeaux on which I will of course report in detail.  But do keep revisting our 2008 Burgundy survey. 

As I write this late on Monday, Tamlyn Currin and Julia Harding MW are valiantly adding the last tasting notes to our coverage of the 2008 burgundy vintage, which so far provides reviews of more than 1,400 wines (sometimes several tasting notes on any one wine). Please note that the lists are nearly but not quite complete, and I intend to add some notes on individual producers in the tasting articles too.

Here is a guide to our coverage of this extremely varied and rather exasperating - though ultimately by no means entirely disappointing - vintage.  We present tasting notes alphabetically by producer (sur)name.

If you want to see all the notes for one particular village, eg Meursault, use the tasting notes search - just select Meursault in the appellation field and 2008 in the vintage field.  Or, as usual, you could limit your search to wines with a certain minimum score, or to whites or reds, or to a recommended drinking date.
