2017 Red Burgundy

The 2017 red wines are not powerhouses but have magnificent balance, with sweet, crystalline red fruit flavours. TThere is plenty of tannin, but also such a soft, silky, subtle tannic mouthfeel. They have incredible harmony and are wonderful reflections of their terroirs.

They are reminiscent of the much underrated 2000 vintage, which continues to give so much pleasure. 2000 was a similarly early harvest starting in the second week of September and the best wines had glorious balance. However, one must be mindful that was nearly 20 years ago, a long time in the world of wine. In the intervening years vineyard management techniques have evolved and investment in wineries has increased. Thus, significantly higher quality fruit is now handled with greater precision. This bodes well for the 2017 reds.

2017 is a vintage that will delight and reward Burgundy enthusiasts who seek above all else subtle charm and finesse.
