1936 Shaking in the 60's by Eddie Clarke


Before we discuss the lovely wines of the Cote d'Or, a word of explanation on the differences between Domaine- bottled wines and those ofFrench bottling, may not be out ofplace. There does appear to be confusion in some minds. Domaine-bottled wines are bottled by the growers in their own cellars; they are authentic unblended wines and are described on the labels"mis en bouteilles au Domaine", or "mis du Domaine". French-bottled wines are those that were sold in cask by the growers to French wine merchants, who bottled the wines themselves.Naturally,the proprietorsor growers have no control over the wines once they have left their cellars. Such wines bear on the label "mis en bouteilles dan nos celliers". It would be difficult to think of a luncheon or dinner that could not be enhanced by wine,and with red meat or game, one usually thinks in terms ofRed Burgundy wine, while with fish, the White Burgundy wines make a perfect combination. The best red and white wines are produced in the Cote d'Or (which itself is divided into two parts, the Cote de Nuits and the Cote de Beaune).
