2016 Burgundy at Great Prices. It is a great year for Reds and Very Good for Whites....
 
It is not long ago that Domaine Brigitte Berthelemot was a relative unknown in Burgundy. I discovered the wines about 6 years ago and was very impressed by their quality and very appealing prices. I immediately added them to our portfolio.
Four years ago they scooped the Decanter Wine Awards the with both the equal best Red and White Burgundies! That was a major feat for a domaine that at the time was less than 10 hectares! 
Berthelemot Mouches Blanc Label In recent years the domaine has expanded, adding serious new vineyards and selling off excess or duplicate parcels. Today, Domaine Berthelemot certainly qualifies as a "Rising Star".

2016 is going to be a terrific vintage for reds. The whites are also very good. There is a vibrancy and freshness, and a savoury character reminiscent of 2014. However, there is more weight of fruit than 2014, and less ripeness than 2015. Perhaps 2016 is more like 2010. Of the trio 2014, 2015 and 2016, from early tastings of
Berthelemot Greves NV Label the reds my favourite is 2016. Steen Ohman "winehog.org", the first reviewer to comment on the wines, has very similar thought. You can read them here.
 
You will also have read about the devastating frosts in France in April last year and how some vineyards will produce zero grapes in 2016. Domaine Berthelemot was not affected as badly as some others. Marc Cugney, the winemaker, has advised that for the first time in years they have a normal vintage of their Premier Cru Clos des Mouches.
 
Berthelemot Garenne Lable So it was very nice to see that prices at Domaine Berthelemot changed very little. Just as the wines have always been great value they remain that way in 2016.
 
Some wines of particular notes are the Beaune 1er Cru Greves rouge, a great vineyard and just $75.95 a bottle Pre Arrival. The Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeots blanc is only $122.50 and the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne blanc is a bargain at $128.95. 
We are to early for tasting notes from the English-speaking critics but many of you will have tasted the wines of Domaine Berthelemot in the past. If anything the quality keeps getting better each year.
