Every two years, Burgundy’s wineries get together and pour their latest releases. With the acclaimed 2012’s as a focus of the week’s tastings, JJ Buckley sent Burgundy specialist Jeff Loo to get a feel for the vintage and report on his favorite wines.

JJ Buckley Fine Wines, the premier fine wine retailer in the United States, has just released their tasting overview of the 2012 vintage in Burgundy following the biannual Grand Jours de Bourgogne trade event.

JJ Buckley sent Jeff Loo, one of the company’s most passionate and knowledgeable sales representatives when it comes to the Burgundy region, to sample its latest releases. Over the course of a week, the Grand Jours tastings make it possible to experience thousands of wines from Chablis in the north down to the Maconnais in the south. Jeff focused on the famed villages of the Cote d'Or with an emphasis on the 2012 vintage, a year that the Wine Advocate's Neil Martin characterized as "great vintage."

Burgundy is a region in transition buffeted by changes thanks to the increasing popularity of their wines across the globe.
