What to do with turned white (Burgundy)

Posted by rboekdrukker, Oct 30, 2010.

Well I opened a 1997 Domaine Ramonet Batard Montrachet and it is gone....for cooking

A shame that a Batard is relegated to the fate of a Bourgogne Aligote. How about a delicate French-style sauce for a fresh, flavorful fish?

Did you let the bottle breathe for awhile before executing it? Sometimes a wine may appear tired at first, but then resuscitates itself and provides surprising delights after some time in contact with oxygen....

Lots of white Burgundy going off with serious oxidation problems.  The solution, it seems, is going to Riesling.

In fact I had three bottles and over the last year each one has been the same. This one I did open a few days ago, tasted it a few times but no changes - so it went next to the vermouth in the fridge for cooking.

Maybe bad storage before I got them...or just three bad bottles?

Bad winemaking.

Sorry. Typo above.  Anyhow, there's a pretty well-known problem with white Burgundies and premature oxidation.  Avoid them or drink them fast.

Well, Greg, how do you explain all the good ones I've had at 15 years of age?

Good post, though, and I'll be taking the time to dig through all the links on that page....
