The 2013 Burgundy Briefing Vintage Report is an in-depth assessment of the 2013 vintage on the Côte d’Or. Despite trying conditions it is a charming red fruit vintage, given the work was precise. Style is divided for whites depending on the date of the harvest.
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 covers 50 pages, however I begin with a few key facts to summarise.
