Burgundy 2015 EN PRIMEUR
Susan and Aidan spent the first week of November in Burgundy cellars and topped up their view of the vintage with a number of London tastings. In many respects the reputation of the vintage has already been made due to the excellent reports coming from across Europe in 2015.
To our mind reds are the stars of the vintage, whilst the whites are delicious but for early consumption. What makes for a great red Burgundy vintage? In 2015 it is their excellent depth of colour, the beautiful clarity and concentration of flavour, incredibly fine but powerful tannins, the enormous energy and freshness in the wines and the lingering finishes. When even the growers’ grandparents refer to never having seen the grapes being harvested in such great condition, you can understand why there is such a buzz!
The vintage is so exceptional that whatever your budget, you MUST purchase some of this vintage en primeur for your cellar as they are of exceptional quality and will sell out to one nation or another.
