Burgundy: tasting the 2016s

Frost had diminished the crop severely in places, but as buyer Toby Morrhall and I were to discover, quality was not affected.

The output of some Burgundian cellars is tiny at the best of times, so Toby had his work cut out securing parcels for our recent en primeur offer (some stock still remaining). I joined him for a week of this quest.
