Details

So, as with every vintage, the two questions for you as consumers that take precedence over everything else always are:  should I buy the wines and if so, how much of them?  The best wines are wonderfully refreshing, transparent and graceful with moderately firm tannic spines where the all-important element of balance is supplemented by good but not high acidities.  Before I offer more detail, the short answer is yes on both accounts that the 2016s deserve a place in your cellars and there is no reason not to go heavy – I for one will be buying all that I can afford and find. More specifically, there are two aspects that I absolutely love about the 2016s which are those of the crystalline transparency to the underlying terroirs coupled with their refreshing drinkability.  One just feels like drinking the 2016s, in fact it’s hard not to like them. BURGHOUND

2016 will always be remembered as the vintage of horrendous frosts where production in some communes was utterly decimated. The one upshot for consumers is that quality is excellent. The whites seem to be a theoretical blend of the two proceeding vintages. In broad terms they have ample flesh and concentration but there is enough nerve and minerality to carry the weight. The reds are pliant and open early with plenty of upfront, juicy fruit and a lovely buoyancy while retaining enough stuffing to ensure that if cellared they will improve and expand with age.

This will be the first big tasting of 2016s and we are compiling a line up that will be unmissable if you love Burgundy.

PLEASE NOTE: This tasting is $20 per person refundable on purchases of $100 or more from the wines on tasting
