2011 Burgundies are about to start arriving in force. Coming after 2009 and 2010 is probably the one false step the vintage has made. 2011 is a lovely vintage with correct ripeness, relatively low alcohol and great precision.
Burghound states "I find to be the most intriguing is just how good the phenolic maturities are yet the sugar maturities are remarkably low, in fact 2011 is one of the lower alcohol vintages in some time. This makes for seductively suave textures that avoid any sense of heaviness as there is good freshness and sufficient acid verve to maintain the finishing balance. This seductive character is further enhanced by the fact that not only are the supporting tannins ripe but they are exceptionally fine-grained; indeed this is one characteristic that both 2011 and 2010 share."
