‘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

'I was seriously impressed with the quality of the Drouhin 2015s as their style for lighter and more elegant burgundies seemed to marry especially well with what is effectively a notably ripe, rich and concentrated vintage.’ – Allen Meadows

'Some of the barrels of 2015 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru were quite reduced, but eventually I found one that seemed more expressive with mulberry and loganberry scents, more incense with time in the glass. I like the conviction that this Chambolle demonstrates. The palate is structured with crunchy tannin, Morey-like in style with a precise and quite persistent finish that bodes well for the future. One to watch out for once in bottle, because it possesses the backbone that should see it age nicely.' – Wine Advocate, 90-92/100
