#sommchat have you changed anything in your winemaking approach in the last 20 years that is significantly different?

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@CharlesComm 92 -big change-bf then > pigage & > pumpover fruit density was very low & tried to extract. 2 get >wines - not good #SommChat

Charles Comm PR ‏@CharlesComm @keepercoll #Sommchat are you saying extraction experiment didn't work?


Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines #sommchat @peterwasserman @keepercoll Q - When you aren't drinking #burgundy #wine, what is your go-to?

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@noblewines fr Bruno richebourg & chassagne #sommchat wines that combine finesse and precision

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines 
@peterwasserman Does he know Philippe Huguenot? Just bought a cpl pallets of his #burgundy for NY #sommchat


Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman 
@noblewines #Sommchat Philippe Huguenot is making all the right moves for better quality wines as per Bruno


Shiba Sommelier ‏@ShibaSommelier 
Q - What is the hardest decision you have to make in the vineyard? #sommchat #wine @keepercoll @peterwasserman

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@ShibaSommelier a. Fr Bruno #sommchat picking date is sometimes the hardest thing to determine -this brings anxiety

Shiba Sommelier ‏@ShibaSommelier 
Q - What is the hardest decision you have to make in the vinification process? #sommchat #wine @keepercoll @peterwasserman

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@ShibaSommelier fr Bruno Clair - in vinification no hard decisions #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@ShibaSommelier Vinification - so many questions - there is not one more diff that the other #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @keepercoll - Have alcohol %ages for your Burgundies stayed pretty consistent over multiple vintages? - #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@demilove #sommchat 2012 was very high 2013 looking for sugar harvesting 12.4 potential had to chapitalize .5 deg at those near 11.5

Lee Schlesinger ‏@WineKnowProd How was 2013 vintage for you? Lots of mixed reports with special focus on hail in the south. Yields, quality, challenges. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@WineKnowProd only a few rot spots in cotes de nuits but I usually have vineyards cleaned up before they are picked #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@WineKnowProd #SommChat major league hit in savings pernand and corton -made 12 barrels total instead of 30 quality great :)

Kay Marley-Dilworth ‏@ATXFoodnews 
@shibasommelier All great questions for #SommChat today! cc @keepercoll, @peterwasserman #Wine

Shiba Sommelier ‏@ShibaSommelier 
Q - Are you having a hard time reaching millennials? How are you marketing to them? #sommchat #wine @keepercoll

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll @ShibaSommelier #sommchat don't do any communication 2 mills. I am amazed that those under 30 spend the amt of money they do on wine

Shiba Sommelier ‏@ShibaSommelier 
Q - What is your most important market for your wines? #sommchat #wine @keepercoll

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines 
RT @ShibaSommelier: Q - What is your most important market for your wines? #sommchat #wine @keepercoll I'd be interested in that

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@ShibaSommelier #SommChat England and America


Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines 
@keepercoll bad and yet positive news, #burgundy prices have gone crazy in last 6 months in US market #sommchat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines 
@keepercoll Bruno how hard is it to keep our (US) allocations out of the China market? #sommchat @peterwasserman are they begging?


KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@noblewines Fr Bruno 3 ph calls a day fr China but with so little wine in last 4 vintages we serve our current custs. 1st #SommChat

Christopher Miller @NobleWines I thank you and @AdamPlotkin thanks you #SommChat

‏@keepercoll 
@noblewines Fr Bruno with so little wine in last 4 vintages I am afraid that ppl will forget village level #wine and look elsewhere #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines 
@keepercoll I feel that #champagne suffered such a fate when their pricing made it tough 4 by the glass in US restaurants #sommchat


Charles Comm PR ‏@CharlesComm 
We love the AOC of Bonnes Mares, what do you think distinguishes it most from other climates in Burgundy? #sommchat

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@charlescommpr Bruno says geology is big diff. Bonnes mares we are on white Soil so #wines have lot of finesse #SommChat

Chris McFall ‏@C_McFall 
What is your favorite vineyard of the wines you make? #SommChat


KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
Fr Bruno cazetiers because I personally love it @c_mcfall #sommchat

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@C_McFall #sommchat what I like abt bones mares is that they are good young old and middle aged and they are always balanced but underdog

Chris McFall ‏@C_McFall @keepercoll #SommChat love Bonnes Mares, so complex! Really enjoy 'en la rue de vergy'. One of my favorites!

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines 
@C_McFall was thrilled when en la rue got upgraded to 1er Cru a decade or so ago #sommchat

Keeper Collection @keepercoll Why do you use huge barrels #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines 
RT @keepercoll: Why do you use huge barrels #SommChat define huge for me please

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@noblewines fr Bruno #alsacian ovals bw 1000-1500 liters #sommchat

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll 
@keepercoll fr Bruno #SommChat I only use on big cuvees to keep freshness on the #wine and avoid oakiness

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll @keepercoll Bruno when not drinking #burgundy wines what do you like to drink? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@keepercoll
