2020 Burgundy En Primeur Offer

2020 Burgundy Offer

The 2020 Vintage

Those of you who do not keep a regular eye on wine trade happenings might have missed something of a hoo-ha in the press relating to the 2020 Burgundy vintage. By all accounts, it’s a doozy. 

As is so often the case, the growing season was marked by heat, but in the case of 2020, the lofted mercury didn’t arrive until August and even then (and crucially) nights were cool. 

And it’s that day-night temperature variation that goes a long way to informing the style of the wines. Cooler nights result in fresher wines and commentators have been fulsome in their praise of red and white wines displaying beautifully ripe fruit allied to great freshness. 

I will end with the conclusion of Master of Wine Jasper Morris, who is based in the region and who writes extensively on Burgundy and its wines on his website, Burgundy Insider:

“2020 is a wonderful vintage for white wines and you can be confident in hunting down your regular favourites, as long as the price does not put you off.

Take a close look at the reds. There will be some utterly spectacular wines for the long term, and some disasters. Read carefully before spending your money, but do not ignore!”
