These reports contain a wealth of information. Fine Burgundy is not only expensive, but requires maturing, making it important to select the best quality for your cellar and the style to suit your palate. Use the reports to make educated decisions when buying past vintages whether from a merchant, a broker, at auction or on the internet. These reports provide an impartial analysis of the vintage; how each of the villages performed, the premier and grand crus which stood out and those which underwhelmed. It”s not just about the quality, but the style and this is often divided, depending on when the domaine in question harvested..and how the fruit was handled in the cuverie. A snap shot (see below) maybe helpful, but selecting the right wine is in the detail.
