Burgundy 2016 En Primeur

Burgundy has had a series of difficult vintages which has removed the equivalent of the production of an entire vintage over the last five years. Devastating frosts destroyed large swathes of the 2016 crop but the damage was uneven. Some vineyards had normal harvests while other parcels, including several Grands Crus, were almost wiped out. Conditions were definitely challenging in 2016 but the mood amongst growers was upbeat when we visited in the autumn of 2017. 

The wines are characterised by their classical style, with ripe and energetic fruit to the fore. We expect the wines to be extremely popular and many will sell out quickly. Please be swift if you wish to place an order.

TASTING NOTES

From a tiny 0.3 hectare plot planted in 1936, the wine shows incredibly intensity with lifted aromatics of spring blossom and white pears underpinned by a firm, chalky minerality reflecting the sandy marl and limestone soils of this steep slope. The finish is long and concentrated with a lovely mouth-watering acidity. Armit Wines

Case of 6 £532.08

TASTING NOTES

Just under 1 hectare of this prized vineyard, it has virtually no soil but is comprised of crumbly limestone.  The wine is coiled and saline, with a chalky, smoky complexity over the dark crunchy mineral depths, black tea and pure, driven acidity. Very long, complex and beautifully structured. Very moreish! Drink from 2023.Armit Wines

2016 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru En Virondot

Domaine Marc Morey

In Stock

Bottle 75cl £51.18

TASTING NOTES

Spiced apples, and a smoky, chalky minerality leads to an attractive, flighty palate with creamy, green apple, spring blossom and jasmine which is enhanced by a fresh, crisp acidity. There is an ethereal character to the wine which does nothing to detract from the attractive length. Drink from 2019.Armit Wines
