The quality of the 2007s took everybody by surprise. Now 2008 is going to have its turn, because it shares some of 2007’s style with a little more color and richness. Which is better? Ha ha. Time will tell, or maybe it will be a tie. Whichever, they are going to be a blast to get to know.

Michel Colin, Bruno’s father, is semi-retired, and he works only with what must be his favorite vineyards. His Puligny Les Demoiselles has been one of Burgundy’s finest bottlings for decades. When you pull one out of your cellar, it is a special occasion even if you stay home and play solitaire.

Over the past few years we have seen an increase in customers asking for wines that are low in alcohol. They say they are moving away from “big” wines, and in this day and age all you have to do is open the business section of your local paper to learn that bigger is not always better.

    Ok, so this is a fair time to remind you that the Tour de France begins July 3rd, and that it would just be perfect timing (July newsletter and all) to announce a Tour Sampler a month from now, right? You have almost thirty days to put all your minds to work!

    Just received the June newsletter. What’s up with the initials at the end of various posts? It’d be nice to know who’s writing what.
