Vintage Report: Burgundy 2016 - Get your Skates on!

Wednesday 3rd January 2018

A year of unprecedented low yields and great quality, this is a vintage well worth snapping up quickly.

The talking point of 2016 Burgundy has been the infamously icy night of April the 26th and the 27th morning. Understandable, as Jack Frost bit viciously and on a scale that has not been seen in Burgundy since at least 1981. However this is a huge injustice to the wines themselves, which, in the end, are what it is all about.
