Generous Burgundy 2017 Vintage With Consistent And Delicious Whites January 18th, 2019

Bookmark
  • 2017 is set to be a consistent and delicious vintage for white Burgundy.
  • There are many lovely reds in 2017 offering a lighter, fresher style
  • It is a very uniform vintage, with wines of middling intensity, accessible fruit, enough acidity and lightish tannins, reflecting their individual terroirs well.

Sweet spots for the whites:

“There is a lot to be said for looking at what would previously have been regarded as cooler areas (St-Aubin, Auxey-Duresses). Of the three grand villages Meursault may possibly just have the edge.”

Sweet spots for the reds:

“My intuition that Gevrey-Chambertin did particularly well may be due to tasting at one or two particular rising stars. In the Côte de Beaune I fell in love with a number of wines from Volnay.”
