Notes

‘A great vintage, indeed the greatest since the legendary 2005,’ writes Allen Meadows of Burghound.com. Offering unbelievable purity of fruit and a fine balance along with the magical ‘Burgundy X-factor’, we have not tasted such delicious young, red Burgundy. The hot and dry 2015 vintage produced majestically ripe fruit but, unlike 2003 or 2009, the red wines have retained incredible freshness and fine aromatics. The 2015 whites require more careful selection and are likely to be over-shadowed by the chiselled 2014s.

Make no mistake, 2015 Burgundy is a great vintage, although quality firmly resides with the red wines instead of the white.’ – Neal Martin

'A ripe, fresh and attractively layered nose consists of both red and dark currant aromas that are laced with plenty of earth influence. The fleshy, round and delicious flavors possess excellent volume while terminating in a sappy if slightly warm finish. This is more forward than usual and made in an easy-to-like style.’ – Allen Meadows, 86 points

'Healthy bright red. Lively minty lift to the medicinal cherry and licorice aromas. Juicy and intense, offering good density for its humble appellation. The strawberry and raspberry flavors carry nicely on the firmly tannic finish. The Boillots select the harvest dates for these vineyards and pick the fruit with their own team, noted Guillaume, who added that in 2015 these vines were picked at the end.' – Stephen Tanzer, 87-88 points
