BURGUNDY 2018 | WELLINGTON
The 2018 vintage in Burgundy has finally arrived after many shipping delays thanks to the eventful past year! It was a heatwave vintage that began with extremely wet winter months. While young vines struggled somewhat, the older vines ripened fully due to high water tables. This resulted in exceptionally healthy and clean fruit. Given that it was hot there was some initial doubt that the whites would shine, but the resulting fruit was bright and shows energetic freshness. The bonus for the reds was that there was no disease pressure, the fruit was pristine and healthy and the red wines are showing a wonderful freshness and vibrancy.
We have gathered together a lovely line up across a variety of appellations, including 3 Grand Cru that will show off this remarkable character of this great vintage. We will be tasting: Michel Gros Fontaine St Martin Blanc Monopole 2018, Jean Chartron Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Pucelle Monopole 2018, Michel Gros Nuits St George 1er Cru 2018, Tortochot Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2018, Gros Frere Vosne Romanee 1er Cru 2018, Michel Gros Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018, Gros Frere Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018, Tortochot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018.
