Bordeaux second best? Surely you jest
Do you know what people say here.
Le bourgogne ? Bien entendu, il faut absolument en avoir dans sa cave. Avec quoi d'autre voulez-vous faire un boeuf bouguignon ?
In fact, I agree that they do make good wines in Burgundy. Some ****ed good ones. The problem is that Burgundy is a minefield. Finding those good wines is like looking for the holy grail.
I would only get involved if I lived in or near the region.
The paradox is that inexpensive Burgundy is frequently terrible. Inexpensive Bordeaux is unquestionably better.
However, the greatest Burgundy is significantly less expensive than the greatest Bordeaux. Now, if only it were as reliable I might be converted!
