The 2009 Burgundy Briefing Vintage Report is an in-depth assessment of the 2009 vintage on the Côte d’Or. The sunny conditions produced beguiling wines. It was hard to make a bad wine in 2009, but the style will vary according to harvest date and work in the cellar.
The report has become a valuable tool for buying these expensive wines, but remans true its original concept to be an engaging insight into the region, aimed at those who wish to keep informed about Burgundy’s latest vintage and its people.
There are two comprehensive vintage reports, one for red wine another for white, which follow a similar format. They include plenty of contributions from the growers and hence cover 33 pages, however I summarise first with a few key facts.
