creamy with crème anglaise lasted through with bright citrus and a hint of jasmin. This bold wine is underpinned by a fine chalky minerality and the finish is incredibly long. Drink from 2020.Armit Winesmore
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.

The bright fruit is swathed around a rich, earthy core, all of which is effortlessly supported by beautifully integrated, velvety tannins.

Bottle 75cl £188.68
Attractive and deeply flavoured with firm tannins and dark fruits on the palate, this wine is riper and deeper than the previous vintage. Subtle notes of leather and cloves on the finish add some extra depth and complexity. This wine should be approachable relatively early but will age well. Drink from 2019. Armit Winesmore
