    Every three to five years we get another Burgundy vintage that marks a new round of excitement. And while we steadfastly espouse a strategy of looking past the vintage hype to buy your favorite producers in every year it is imperative that every serious Burgundy collector or drinker get their ducks in a row and be ready, with a sober strategy to meet the new vintage releases of the 2015s and the hype that surrounds them.
    Generalization can be the enemy of successful analysis but 2015 is ripe, with good concentration. And other than the reduction in quantity, not quality, because of the seemingly ubiquitous Spring hail storms, it is healthy, with great potential. It is likened more to 2009 than ’10 but the balance is good and the ‘material’ dense, with good phenolic ripeness that allowed winemakers the freedom to express themselves and assert their style.

    …this is a truly sensational vintage that should not be missed by any Rhône lover out there. Let me say that one more time: 2015 is a truly sensational vintage. Looking at the weather, the vintage is characterized by a wet, rainy winter/spring that saturated the water table. This was followed by a large, healthy crop-set and a scorching hot summer that served to thicken the grape skins. There were rains later in the summer when needed (July and August), and harvest went off with few problems. Quality is consistent across all varieties, and there was very little sorting required in the cellar.
    Nearly every appellation has produced profound wines and the vintage is almost universally loved by vignerons. Marcel Guigal told me it was the greatest vintage he had ever seen. Across the board, the wines possess saturated purple colors (sometimes with hints of blue), thick, unctuous textures, beautiful concentration and ripe, yet present tannin. In addition, the wines retain a sense of freshness and purity. At this point, the 2015s show more flamboyance and sexiness than the 2010s (tannin levels are similar), with slightly more freshness than the 2009s. A number of vignerons compared the vintage to 1990, but for those of us with shorter tasting histories, the vintage comes closest in my mind to a hypothetical blend of 2009 and 2010.
