See this guide to our extensive coverage of Burgundy 2015. Our picture shows Pascal Mugneret of Domaine Gérard Mugneret in Vosne-Romanée demonstrating his extensive digital tasting records.
Now that the wines have been sorted into groups by producer, you can sort the wines within those groups by score or appellation.
DOMAINE LOUIS MICHEL
Somewhat closed on the nose, but there is pleasant apple and blossom character on the palate. Light body, some bitterness to finish. (RH)
Verdant nose with a crab apple character – but then a rather dilute palate. Finishes with a short salty aftertaste. (RH)
Ripe apple with a lovely pithy skin character – much more depth on the palate than their Fôret. Chewy and textural – excellent. (RH)
Green citrus, white flowers, bright acidic definition on the finish. Attractive leesy character on the nose. (RH)
Tank sample. Ripe, sweet apricot fruit and a glossy, viscous palate. Good length, but it isn't quite dense or complex enough for a very long life, methinks. (RH)
Light and sweet and without quite enough substance.
Floral and sweet and rich. A bit too much.
DOMAINE ALAIN MICHELOT
Very chunky, traditional style.
Relatively dark crimson. Light and slightly cheesy on the nose. Then a sensation of fermented cough pastilles. Slightly sludgy tannins but solid enough.
Dark crimson. Pretty reduced nose. Edgy, marked acidity. Rather sludgy texture – could do with fresher fruit. Slight lack of precision. Raw finish.
Refined, penetrating nose. Satisfying even if it already wears its heart on its sleeve. Lots of delivery for those looking for quite traditional red burgundy.
Indistinct, stolid nose. Bitter purple fruits on the palate. Ticks the boxes in a slightly rugby-player style.
Much more lifted than the other wines I have tasted from this stable. Lean and lively – quite different! But not a standout.
DOMAINE FRANÇOIS MIKULSKI
Zingy, grapefruit character and plentiful acidic punch. A good aperitif style. (RH)
Rounded, fleshy, creamy – but the fruit is very restrained and dry on the finish. Decent if a bit plain. (RH)
Extrovert and luscious nose with equal amounts of oak spice and rich stone fruit flavours. Shots of lime juice on the finish. Grippy phenolic feel – has the weight and breadth of good Meursault. (RH)
Impressive mineral character – flinty and saline and smoky, with a pithy green apple fruit with loads of freshness and density. Very good – justifies its premium. (RH)
Very bright apple fruit, smashing acidic frame and a great deal of punch on the mid palate. Lots of green citrus – if anything, this is less fleshy and mouth-filling than the typical Meursault – but delicious all the same, and very lengthy. (RH)
Quite sweet fruit on the nose, finely grained texture on the palate and a polished, smooth mouthfeel to finish. Powerful fruit which balances well with the body, acid and tannin. Very tasty, and lots of concentration for ageing. (RH)
DOMAINE JEAN-MARC MILLOT
Updated 22 Feb 2017: the sample tasted during the primeurs in Jan 2017 tasted to me as if it had problems with brett. Dom Millot contacted me after our notes were published to tell me they had had the wine analysed and it was not affected by brett, and they kindly sent me a fresh sample. I can only assume that the sample had deteriorated on its way to London because this fresh sample could not have been more different from the sample I tasted in January. The following is my new note. I have also changed my score and suggested drink dates.
Mid to deep cherry red. This is totally clean, with plenty of dark-red fruit though the overall effect is made more savoury by a light note of spice and no noticeable oak sweetness. On the palate, dry, slightly chewy tannins but in balance with the fruit. (JH)
There’s a certain farmyard air to the nose, and the palate has an overripe fruit character. Easy-drinking, but not the most sophisticated of 2015s. (RH)
Cask sample. Mid to deep crimson. Rich-fruited and spicy on the nose. Plenty of dark, ripe fruit, generous and rounded already. Dark and savoury on the finish. Compact but softening tannins. (JH)
Cask sample. Sweet dark fruit and some oak sweetness set the tone. Chewy and leaner than I expected on the palate but there's plenty of fruit to balance the definite framework. Wait. (JH)
Cask sample. Mid to deep crimson. Pretty oaky on the nose at the moment and a little meaty. Really very meaty on the palate (brett?). Savoury and persistent but not sure about that meaty character – I hope it is the condition of the sample and not the nature of the wine. (JH)
Delicious perfume on the nose, but the palate has a pretty wild volatility about it, giving a strong glue scent on the finish. Not for me. (RH)
Much more savoury and controlled than their Échezeaux, with a lovely clove and anise spice on the palate. Very long, very aromatic aftertaste with some vegetal stemmy hints as well as the spice and just-ripe black cherry. (RH)
DOMAINE ANDRÉ MOINGEON
Neutral fruit, some chalky notes. Glossy and smooth on the palate, which finishes with an attractive dairy character and some salinity. (RH)
Light palate, attractive minty flavour and a little lime citrus fruit. Fairly generous body with a nice leesy weight. Finely balanced, but a little conservative in flavour range. (RH)
Creamy, dairy-infused nose. Juicy and generous palate, with more weight than acid on the finish. Polished and balanced and well made in a more voluminous style. (RH)
DOMAINES DES MOIROTS
Floral nose and a bit tight on the palate. Bit mean.
Quite sharp and pointy. Edgy tannins but the fruit is certainly ripe enough. Edgy and grainy but not that welcoming.
Quite an intense nose. Very rough tannins. Lots of chew and not quite enough ripe fruit at the moment but it may well grow into a swan.
Crunchy black fruit, simple and light on the palate. Not bad, but there are more interesting 2015 Bourgognes elsewhere. (RH)
Cask sample. Generous oak spice on the nose and palate. Finely brushed tannin and charming acidic verve on the finish. Overall fairly light in concentration, and not especially complex either. (RH)
Ripe, succulent redcurrant fruit. A bit dilute on the palate – lacks flesh, and instead has an almost bitter edge to the finish. (RH)
Cask sample. Red cherry, very fine clay-textured tannin. Ripe fruit but not much in the way of depth or intensity on the finish. Worth giving a few years' benefit of the doubt? (RH)
DOMAINE DE MONTILLE, MAISON DEUX MONTILLE and CHÂTEAU DE PULIGNY-MONTRACHET
The wines were perhaps a tiny bit short...
