Burgundy 2016 En Primeur

"Good news, burgundy lovers! Ex-cellar prices for vintage 2016, the vintage to be shown at countless UK merchants' tastings in London next week, are more or less the same as last year. More good news: 2016 is a seriously delicious vintage. Bad news, burgundy lovers: there is a serious shortage of wine." Jancis Robinson, January 2018

“The perfect follow-on vintage to 2015 in all but one respect: those tiny quantities after the savage spring frosts.” Andrew Jefford

On 27th/28th April 2016 a late and severe frost devastated much of Burgundy, the worst since 1981 with some vineyards producing not a bottle of wine and most harvesting their lowest yields for a very long time. However, by mid-summer perfect growing conditions were evident and remained until after much later than usual. The result is a wonderful classical Burgundian vintage.

The reds are superb with aromatic, fresh and expressive flavours. These are transparent wines which are approachable already but will get better and better.

The whites are also excellent, charming, open, fresh and fragrant wines. 

Our advice is to buy as much as you can of this great vintage, not forgetting that our allocations are tiny (as are everyone elses).  

Esme Johnstone – January 2018
