Wines tasted on 2 February 2005

At this meeting we welcomed Martin Tramier from Maison L Tramier et Fils, Mercury, Burgundy (founded in 1842). Martin brought along a number of wines produced by his family, and we also tasted some other very fine wines from the area. It was very interesting to hear his opinion of these wines, as well as details of how they were produced. The wines we tasted were:
