Burgundy’s Evolution

Burgundy’s Evolution

by Westgarth Wines February 15, 2019

There is a quality 2017 Burgundy out there for everyone, no matter where you are in your Pinot Noir journey. The producers have become adept at handling the climate change global warming has brought. Adjusting the canopy, plowing timing, maceration time and cap management are all techniques finessed by the likes of Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair and Nicolas Rossignol. The results are the new Burgundies: balanced, concentrated, ripe yet delicate, and earlier drinking. The 2017 vintage was more bountiful, too, although unless you are looking to buy fine wine in Hong Kong you may still have a tough time getting your hands on the high-end examples. More are now being allocated to Asian markets. If you can, though, buy up and drink up—Burgundy is rolling with the punches and producing the wines you want to savor.
