The 2015 Burgundy Briefing Vintage Report is an in-depth assessment of the 2015 vintage on the Côte d’Or. The quality is particularly good for reds across both the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. Delicious and surprisingly exuberant reds. A hot summer gave concentration, ripeness and decent freshness. The style and quality of the whites is somewhat varied. Generally ripe, sunny, fruity whites with gentle acidity, improving with time in barrel.
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 fifty pages, however I begin with a few key facts to summarise.
