2014 Red Burgundies – Ready to Go Part 2

2014 saw uneven weather: the beginning was promising, with glorious sunshine giving perfect conditions for flowering, but a rainy summer slowed ripening to the extent that growers feared lean, acidic wines. Then a warm autumn and dry north wind pushed ripeness, and the harvest took place in good conditions. These two disparate elements give the vintage its magic: the cool middle period a bright, crunchy freshness, the warmth at either end enough ripeness without any loss of focus.
