Burgundy 2006 Vintage

Red : GOOD

White : AVERAGE

A generally weak year for the reds which have some freshness but lack the concentration and power of the 2005 and 2009 vintages.
Whites are generally fresh with good structure. Many whites are marked with unusual (for Burgundy) tropical fruit aromatics.
