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.

Bottle 75cl £88.68

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
