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.

Domaine Patrick Javillier

In Stock

Bottle 75cl £50.68

Case of 6 £304.08

At the balanced, fresh and elegant yet “very Meursault”. It is made up of two plots that total just 0.6 hectares with vines averaging 35 years.

Domaine Humbert

Bottle 75cl £51.68

Case of 6 £310.08

TASTING NOTES

Lifted purple fruit, spiced black fruit and violets sing on the nose.  The palate is firm yet fine, with beautifully chiselled tannins and again this beautiful acid line lifting the whole wine.

Bottle 75cl £54.68

TASTING NOTES

Exceptional purity and precision of the crisp green apple and riper cox apple fruit combines with a nervy acidity to provide juiciness and energy to this wine. It has a lovely mineral core and subtle hazelnut depths that add intrigue to the palate and persist onto the long, integrated and graceful finish. Drink from 2019.Armit Wines

2016 Meursault Cuvée Tête de Murger

Domaine Patrick Javillier

In Stock

Bottle 75cl £59.68

Case of 6 £358.08

TASTING NOTES

A powerful, tightly wound wine that benefits from extended ageing. Again, a blend of two sites, totalling just 0.62 hectares of 30 year old vines, combined to elevate beyond the sum of its parts. Les Casse-Têtes is from the heart of the village. It means ‘heads of stone’ evocative of the rocky soils the vines have to contend with, bringing...
