2011 White Burgundy - Results, Oct. '15
The 2011 growing season was a challenge for “les vignerons” with summer temperatures occurring in spring, fall arrived in summer and then summer weather returned in autumn. Despite this, 2011 is considered by many to be a good to very good Burgundy vintage, both for reds and whites. Toronto Vintners acquired 7 wines for our October 20th, 2015 tasting from the Côte de Beaune region and one from the Côte Chalonnaise sub-region of Burgundy, which lies south of the Côte de Beaune. From Beaune our wines were: 1 Savigny Les Beaune, 2 Meursaults, 2 Chassagne-Montrachets, 1 Puligny-Montrachet, and 1 Pernard-Vergelesses. The eighth wine was a Montagny from the Côte Chalonnaise. Most of the wines we tasted were Premier (1er) Cru wines which refers to the second highest classification of quality wines from Burgundy after Grand Cru, the highest. So superb quality!
