This week I’m tasting 2016s from a range of estates – from Gevrey to Maranges. This is first impressions – and marks the start of my 2016 vintage coverage.
Day one of my June 2017 Burgundy trip included Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair, Domaine Y. Clerget in Pommard and Domaine Nicolas Faure.

The next days included visits at Domaine Duroché, Domaine Jean-Marc Millot, Maison Harbour Domaine des Croix, Domaine Chevrot in Maranges, Domaine Pascal Bouley, Domaine Julien, Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini, Domaine Marc Roy, Domaine Rougeot in Meursault and Domaine Bertrand et Axelle Machard de Gramont.
All the estates seemed very happy with the 2016s at this stage – they are lighter and more classic than the 2015s – with a cooler and more vibrant fruit and acidity.You need to login to read the rest of this article. If you are not a Premium Subscriber, use the subscribe function and sign-up.
