On Tuesday night we had dinner at Bistro des Cocottes with the wine trade legend Roy Richards, who brought a couple of extremely generous bottles to share with us. Before getting into them we drank a couple of lovely whites including 2016 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly from Bernard Moreau and a really impressive 2016 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Le Charmois by Marc Colin. We eased into a bottle of Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2013 from Denis Mortet. The 2013s are the Burgundians’ favourite drinking vintage right now, as they offer supple fruit and soft tannins.
