This is my comprehensive set of scores – 1,558 wines – on 2012 Burgundy. These wines were tasted in Burgundy, London and New York City from late November 2013 through February 2014.

The reds from this difficult, low yielding year are compelling and well worth the investment of money and time. Nevertheless, they are charming today. The whites from the Côtes de Beaune can be tricky as they tend to show the effects of hail strike more overtly with hints of tannin. It is important to choose carefully then drink-up in the mid-term.
