Red Burgundy Vintages

2016 proved a rollercoaster of a season with everything thrown at the growers in the early season but what fruit survived through to harvest is very good, quantities, however, will be small. 2015 is looking to be a classic vintage for red Burgundy. The red wines of 2014 have a great combination of red and black fruits as well as being charmingly approachable in their youth. After a late start and a cool summer, a dry September saved the day in 2013. This followed another difficult year weather-wise though the resultant wines in 2012 are soft and attractive and this in turn was preceded by a year of tricky weather in 2011. The wonderful duo of 2010 and 2009 gave elegant age-worthy wines in the former, and bigger, riper, very drinkable wines in the latter. These followed the more difficult 2008, which produced fresh wines, and 2007 when a poor summer meant only the best growers did well. 2006 was also less than straight-forward but some attractive, pure wines have emerged. The fantastic 2005 vintage gave wines which will need time to show at their best. Before that, the 2004 vintage produced fresher, lighter wines, drinking well now, and the unusually hot vintage of 2003 continues to surprise, though ultimately the tannins may out-live the fruit. 2002 was a good vintage, giving some attractive mid-term drinking wines. The best growers had to be careful not to over-extract tannins in 2001. The Millennium year of 2000 proved tricky but some soft, easy wines were produced (drink up) while 1999 was a super vintage, giving wines which will stand the test of time but be approachable throughout their evolution. The 1998 vintage produced some good wines though some can be a little foursquare. If you still have some of the charming wines from 1997, drink up soon, whilst the 1996 and 1995s were rather good being fresher and darker respectively.
