Early January is always an exciting time in the UK wine trade, the highlight of which is most certainly the release of Burgundy’s latest vintage. We have put together a selection that really shows off the best the entire Côte d’Or has to offer, and our wine experts cannot wait to help you navigate the meanders of this most complex – and most fascinating – region.
Our extensive tastings showed remarkable consistency across the appellations, and great transparency, each terroir coming through well, at least at the excellent addresses we work with. Reds are quite simply joyful – they have lovely weight and textures with fresh, juicy red fruit cores and well balanced acid and tannic structures reminiscent to those of the 2000s, which are still drinking very well indeed nigh on 20 years’ later.
The whites, meanwhile, are very close indeed to the exceptional 2014s, sometimes even surpassing them in some Domaines. They have splendid richness and energy, with excellent streaks of acidity.
Take a look at our full range of Burgundy and the producers that make them. You can buy online, call us on 01206 713560 or email [email protected].
