See this guide to our extensive coverage of Burgundy 2015. Our picture shows the vineyards of Chassagne seen from Bruno Colin's courtyard.
Sweet and round. A bit candified – sweet sherbet. Green note on the end.
Fresh, rather mossy/vegy nose. Racy and edgy. Medium bodied with fine tannins.
Slightly reduced but fine and fresh. A tad skinny now.
25% whole bunch.
Very juicy and fruity underneath the reduction. Pure and promising.
Lively and energetic with sufficient fruit and finishes dry.
Lots of depth and density. Full but not fat. Neat.
New for 2015. Deep gold. Even St-Romain seems sweet in 2015. Round. Bit too plump.
Floral and lively. Racy and lean and fresh. Quite simple.
A little bit of smokiness and then some sweetness. Chewy and straightforward.
Quite sweet and rich. Rather old-fashioned in a way. Though there is some reasonable acidity. But not my preferred style.
100% new oak. Savour of the oak has dampened the sweetness of the fruit somewhat. Reasonably racy and savoury on the palate. Sweet note on the end.
Quite rich and round. Hint of creamy coffee. Not that much concentration.
Not majestic. Sweet and round and easy with a hint of marzipan. Easy. Sweet-shop hints.
