2018 was challenging but exciting for Burgundy - a rare event where producers were generally delighted with the quality of their grapes, and for once, good quantity.
A warm to hot summer without any heat spikes and just enough rain to freshen the vines.  Stylistically the wines are very variable, depending on each grower’s intuitions and approach in the vineyard and in the cellar. Despite being hailed as a good vintage it is important to choose carefully. There are some special wines in 2018 but also some variances across the region.

"I was taken aback at how well many of the white wines show in 2018… I discovered whites with surprisingly zingy acidities that impart more tension than anticipated, far fewer obvious tropical notes and far greater articulation of individual terroirs."
Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Moving on to the reds, firstly, we do not see the same abundant quantities as the whites, and in some cases they are markedly down. Generally, the 2018s in barrel tend toward vivid and bright red and blue fruit aromatics. They seem to leap out of the glass with a sense of nascent joie-de-vivre."
Neal Martin, Vinous.com
