The commercial side of the website is the annual Burgundy Briefing Vintage Report, which I have been writing and selling to a subscription list since 2004. This focuses on the Côte d’Or, the most illustrious stretch of Burgundy. It is based on extensive tastings of the vintage which is maturing in barrel. I publish my analysis in late November or early December, shortly before the wine is offered for sale. In Burgundy’s en-primeur market, where wine is sold before it is bottled, the current report enables prospective buyers to make informed decisions.
