The Juice on Burgundies

I attended a wine tasting of the 2007 Burgundy barrel samples on Thursday, which was hosted by the importer Frederick Wildman & Sons, Ltd. (A barrel sample is a wine which has not yet been bottled; so while you can get a good sense of what the wine will be like when released, it will undoubtedly change a good bit more once bottled.) Many great producers and winemakers were on-hand pouring samples from some of the most renowned appellations in Burgundy: the Côte de Nuits, the Côte de Beaune, and from the southern part of the region.
