Burgundy 2012 Tastings

Burgundy in November is cold. The week of our visit was no exception, with the region suffering its first heavy snowfalls of the winter, sub zero temperatures and a chill wind which made the growers’ cellars seem positively warming. Tasting red wines in these cool temperatures can be difficult, as the fruit is usually less expressive and acidity more noticeable. However despite these adverse external conditions, it soon became clear that 2012 will be an extremely good vintage!
