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.

A savoury, smoky, earthy nose with wild red and black fruit. There is a mouth-watering freshness which plays with the precise, pure strawberry fruit. The bright fruit is swathed around a rich, earthy core, all of which is effortlessly supported by beautifully integrated, velvety tannins. The finish is very long, poised and concentrated with mineral complexity and exquisite length. This...

A wine with great intensity and impressive length, it has an expressive bouquet showing green apples and spring flowers.

Bouchard Père et Fils

In Stock

Case 6 x 75cl £1,144.08

Attractive and deeply flavoured with firm tannins and dark fruits on the palate, this wine is riper and deeper than the previous vintage.
