Vintage Reports

Each time we release the wines of a new vintage, we assess the conditions and factors which have shaped the wines of that year. We draw on first hand commentary from leading growers in the region which we gather during our regional visits. Such trips allow us to better understand the merits of a vintage which we then relay to our clients. Drawing on our own tasting experience, we compare to previous vintages and advise on the longevity and quality of the wines produced.

Burgundy 2013

If you have followed the wine press these last couple of years, you could hardly have avoided the fact that the 2013 vintage conditions presented challenges across many European viticultural regions.  When we focus on Burgundy in particular, we can see that, despite the undeniably...

Bordeaux 2013

2013 will go down as a very difficult vintage – a taxing one for each and every team at each and every Château. There was barely a stage when they could take their eyes off of their vineyards and there is little doubt that, had this vintage occurred...
