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 2010

I recall a time when cold winters were seen to offer vines the chance to regenerate after the productivity of harvest. Yet the dramatic cold temperatures witnessed in the run up to the New Year 2010 were welcomed by few. Where frost pockets fell...
