Expert Opinion & Vintage Report
We consolidate a wide range of critic scores, expert opinion and market insight into one place to help you make an informed decision. Although devastating frosts and hail struck the region, what remained appears to be of exceptional quality in the opininion of the critics and the FINE+RARE team. Andrew Jefford wrote that Burgundy 2016 is "the perfect follow-on to 2015 in all but one respect: those tiny quantities." High quality and limited volume means that this vintage will be in high demand and low supply. We are therefore set for one of the most memorable and hard fought campaigns in recent history. Below is just a taster of what the critics are saying about Burgundy 2016:
“The 2016 red Burgundies are classic, cool and vibrant with plenty of charm and energy.” – Steen Öhman
“The whites from 2016 are sculpted and intense; the reds are poised, fresh and vivacious – also classical if you like.” – Andrew Jefford
“What remains is considered good quality in a classic style.” – Jancis Robinson
