Re: Burgundy question: brett vs earth

Sometimes it is reduction, it tends to blow off. Sometimes its brett, wont blow off and the finish is clipped. Sometimes its Gevrey 'sauvage' character. It wont blow off.

Re: 2006 Keller Von der Fels

Hi David,

We had massive problems with Riesling oxidising in Australia in the '90's. Almost on mass, all producers switched to screwcap between 2001 and 2004. No oxidation since. No Umm...no's about it.

Best Regards
Jeremy

Re: 2006 Keller Von der Fels

You can see one in the glass there Claus. Open an '06 under screwcap! Riesling under cork has just as many problems as Chardonnay.

Re: Bottle weight

I hear what you are saying Andrew, just trying to convey what I understood from what Pierre-Yves told me. He is not the type of chap to need heavy bottles and long corks to portray the quality of the wine he makes.

He is doing something right, as I can't ever recall having an oxidised wine from him.

Pierre-Yves Colin (PYCM) uses heavy bottles for a reason. They are non recycled glass and he believes that the larger corks he uses seats properly in such a bottle. He is very much aware of premox and wants to minimize the risk.
