Burgundy’s magnificent 2015 vintage

It is not very often that a vintage in Burgundy is universally acclaimed as being great. But 2015 is one of these rare years, a vintage whose Pinot Noirs specifically, from generic Bourgogne Rouge to Grand Cru level, will inspire and delight wine lovers everywhere.

The wines are packed with perfectly ripe fruit flavours, but retain wonderful freshness. They are well-structured for long term keeping, but are not overly tannic and so should also drink beautifully in their youth. In short, everything is in balance, and wine quality is consistently good. 2015 is therefore the perfect vintage to discover the pleasures of Burgundy – from all its different regions and at all price points.
