Wine Cellar Dunkeld 


Nature’s wrath of early season frost was the worst since 1981 and the yields were reduced to record lows, meaning allocations have been slashed. The good news is that it is a terrific vintage. In fact, many pundits believe that it’s better than 2015 and offers more vivid freshness, terroir-expression and finer balance. ‘Excellent and entirely classic in style,’ writes Allen Meadows who says there is ‘freshness, energy, grace and transparency’ in the vintage. Taste through the Burgundy villages to the Premier Cru level from the likes of Joseph Drouhin, Henri Boillot, Hudelot-Noëllat and Harmand Geoffroy. Set to be both educational and hedonistic!
