2016 Burgundy En Primeur – A small but potentially outstanding vintage
In 2016 Burgundy had an unprecedented late frost that decimated production, for some vineyards this means as little as 10% of a normal crop was harvested whilst for others a normal crop was produced delivering delicious wines with succulent fruit and velvety tannins.

“…. where it does exist in 2016, it is at times extraordinarily great, with a clutch of legendary wines. Winemaking is not for the faint-hearted, and 2016 took many winemakers to the wire, but looking back, the enormous progress in skill and knowledge along with greater perseverance and fortitude meant that what could have been a disastrous vintage was for many a vintage of torment but also triumph” Neal Martin, www.RobertParker.com

The reds have lovely depth and the whites offer super richness and broad generous fruit. Tickets and samples are limited so do not delay if you would like to secure a ticket. Please phone or email and we will pop you on the guest list.
