Burgundy 2015 Tasting - Part II

7. marts 2018

Continuing the Burgundy 2015 Tasting - Part I, this is our verdict on another 30+ Burgundies from the interesting 2015. As expected, the reds did indeed perform slightly better than the whites. 

Should one buy the 2015 vintage?

Absolutely, 2015 is the best vintage for reds since 2005 and even though the whites are a bit uneven, there are still some very good examples out there. Prices are high, but bear in mind that as yields in 2016 were even lower, next year are expected to be even pricier.
