offer of the day – henri boillot 2016s…

henri-boillot-charlemagne

The first offer on 2016s that I’ve seen – the comparison to the 2015 offer from the same merchant is in the brackets.

Whilst there was frost in 2016, and much was lost, it was highly variable with some white wine vineyards offering full yields. Here the increases are seemingly across the board – Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits – there is nothing here to suggest the variability of the frost and therefore the yields. The Bonnes-Mares is a case in point – Chambolle lost 80%, the next village, Morey had high yields…

At first sight, very disappointing…

    Disappointing indeed Bill, picking just one out i.e the Clos de la Mouchere which I used to buy, a 10%+ price rise. Err, no.

    Hardly a surprise though I guess. I wonder what will happen with 2017 pricing ? Too much to hope for cum unrealistic to even muse on any potential price reductions I bet. The inexorable rise in Burgundy pricing beyond the ‘common man’ (and beyond him even !) continues. All that said, supply / demand rules & if the vignerons can achieve that pricing good luck to them (as someone close to a vigneron).

    Yet another reason to load up on prior vintages when you can find them. This past week I bought 2009 Beaune 1er cru from two excellent domaines at US$45 per bottle.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
