More on Red Burgundy 2013

23rd January 2015

My final word - actually strictly speaking not at all my final word as this is part of the verdict of Jancis Robinson MW, who tasted in the autumn in Burgundy and in London recently. (Posted today, 23rd Jan on

  • "The most obvious fault in 2013s is a lack of full ripeness and in some cases an excess of acidity.
  • The second most common characteristic is a lack of concentration. For many palates this is no fault in burgundy. We don’t want our burgundies to be massive wines. But most 2013s are notably lighter in body than average"

Sorry, but we can't just start charging people over £30  bottle to ensure ripeness.  Look at Oregon.Chile, New Zealand or even South Africa. Or go back and buy 2010s, 2011s or 2012s from Burgundy. Enough said on this topic.
