Assessing Burgundy

Tasting young Burgundy to make a selection to offer en primeur requires the appreciation of an artist and the mind of a scientist, as I discovered after a couple of days alongside Society buyer Toby Morrhall.

Burgundy's mystique sets it aside from other fine wines somehow, it's not just the complex patchwork of vineyards that you need to get to grips with, but there's also each producer's finely nuanced take on crafting their wines differently from their neighbours’.
