Issue 16 is the current issue. It is an annual issue designed to cover the 2013 vintage for red and white wines from the Côte d'Or. There are detailed vintage reports for both red and white wines (covering the season, the approach in the winery and a technical analysis of the wines); the style and the quality of the vintage is considered and this includes many contributions from the growers. There is an assessment of each principal village and the premier and grand cru within them. Comprehensive tasting notes make up the bulk of the issue with introdctions to each domaine/negoce visited. There is advice on the ageing potential of the vintage and when to drink individual wines. As usual there are hit lists of favourite wine.
Additionally for the whites there are 4 verticals flights of past vintages, covering decade or so from Domaine Jean-Louis Chavy, Puligny-Montrachet, La Folatieres; from Domaine Michel Morey-Coffinet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Les Farendes; from Domaine Rene Lamy-Pilot, Chassagne-Montrachet, Morgeots and from Domaine Jean-Claude Bachelet, Saint-Aubin, Les Charmois. For the reds, there is a flight of Vosne, Romanee, Les Suchots from Domaine Confuron-Coteditot, with some older wines from the 90s, 80s and 1978, which was the last vintage to be havested as late as the 2013 vintage.
