Still wondering whether to take the plunge on 2013 Burgundy vintage? This is a vintage we think you would never regret having in your cellar. As one attendee at our tasting wrote when sending his order “The massive weather challenges faced by the growers really not evident”. As always, top growers just do make top wines.

We have picked twelve聽wines – 6 white, 6 red聽– from our 2013 Burgundy offer.聽 Twelve聽wines that excited us and excited the critics, and say something about the vintage, about us and/or about their producers. You should read our聽vintage review聽before thinking of buying any 2013 Burgundies.
