For the elegance attributed to the '16 is not recognisable in all wines. 2016 was also warm; the wines hardly have less alcohol than those from the hot year 2015. So it happens again and again that in a direct comparison, the '16 of all wines seems somewhat ponderous, while its counterpart from the previous year manages its alcohol power much better thanks to greater concentration and firmer structure. The best 16s, however, develop a delicacy, complexity, freshness and, precisely, elegance that elevates them far above the already very good Annate from 2015. We can't remember a vintage that gave us anywhere near as many downright inspiring wines.
