This is my comprehensive set of scores – 1,120 wines – on 2011 Burgundy. These wines were tasted in Burgundy, London and New York City from late November 2012 through May 2013.

This is a charming vintage that is ready to enjoy immediately. Given the unusually cool vintage, the wines are lower in alcohol. They are not, however, lacking in ripeness. Reds and whites are equally compelling, and most wines will be best earlier rather than later.
