More magic Burgundy 2015 reds

I have never had more recommended Top Value wines in the Burghound Selection,’ writes Allen Meadows, the Burgundy expert, on the 2015s. Last week’s tastings of the stellar vintage highlighted its magic – even at Bourgogne level.

The Bourgogne reds in this warm, generous vintage can be better than village wines from more challenging or weaker vintages,’ suggests commentator Jeannie Cho Lee MW. ‘While the top crus of 2015 will be scarce and expensive, with the wines spread thinly around the world,’ says Antonio Galloni, ‘this is a prime vintage for buying village wines.’

All the terroirs ripened fully in Burgundy’s marginal climate and even the wines at the lower level show fine depth, structure and great length. Although the Rand remains weak, Burgundy prices are likely to continue rising as worldwide demand for this hallowed region continues to surge. If ever there was a vintage to explore Burgundy, 2015 is it!

 

Burgundy 2015s

 

We have offered the Chavy-Chouet La Taupe before. It’s a classy Pinot heralding from a plot next to Pommard. Joseph Drouhin’s Côte de Nuits-Villages and Morey-Saint-Denis are a real step up in 2015 with impressive structure and dazzling depth. Burgundy stars Hudelot-Noëllat and Henri Boillot have made arguably their finest Bourgogne Pinot Noirs in 2015. These are highly limited.

We finally introduce the Harmand-Geoffroy Gevrey-Chambertin from a classically-styled producer that flies under the radar and offers serious value. ‘Gerard is one of Gevrey’s stars, producing a splendid range of wines… The Harmand’s touch is clearly masterly. Their wines are all too attractive young, but age well. A fine, confident domaine,’ say Remington Norman and Charles Taylor MW, writing for The Great Domaines of Burgundy.
