In my 20 years of visiting Burgundy and tasting wines of the newly released vintage, the reds of 2017 are among the best I’ve ever had. The 2017 red Burgundies are very good, often excellent and, from time to time, bloody awesome. These wines are so delicious that I’d like to share them with you at a special Waterford Wine & Spirits 2017 Burgundy tasting.
What makes the 2017 red Burgundy vintage so special? Because more than any vintage I can remember, the 2017s remind me of what all of those multitudinous Burgundy climats should taste like. (The Burgundy climats are the region’s precisely demarcated plots of vineyard land, which are distinguished from each other by specific geological and climatic conditions.) As nearly every Burgundy winemaker I know told me, 2017 is a vintage that distinguishes one vineyard or one terroir from another with satisfying clarity. All of them have something to say. They all have something special to offer.
Collectively, the vintage shows an intensity of fruit, elevated aromatics and a dazzling freshness. And it’s gaining density and power by the day. This is a radiant and vivacious vintage, with complexity and depth. It’s a modern classic.
Because of the striking character and quality of the 2017 red Burgundies, this isn’t just the tasting of a new vintage. It’s the vintage tasting of a lifetime.
You’d be crazy to miss it.
