White Burgundy, 2016

The 2016 white Burgundy vintage was very much a winemaker’s vintage – choose carefully and you will be well rewarded by charming, textured, balanced Chardonnays.

Like red Burgundy, 2016 is something of a miraculous white Burgundy vintage, following the worst frost (in late April) seen for over three decades, which wiped out entire plots, but remarkably left other vineyards virtually untouched. The frost was followed by an unseasonally wet May and June causing mildew to reduce the crop further still – leading to miniscule yields for many.
