White Burgundy, 1999

1999 was a very good to excellent Burgundy vintage – a huge crop of ripe, healthy grapes, in which Pinot Noir marginally pipped Chardonnay.

The Pinot Noir was ripe and juicy – good when young, great with a little bottle age – developing complex characteristics. Producers that green harvested prevented the vines from becoming overloaded and subsequent under-ripening.

1999 also produced a wealth of refined, elegant Chardonnay – lively and user-friendly, yet generally lacking the concentration of truly great years.
