2019 BURGUNDY: A SNAPSHOT
A dry winter in December 2018 and January 2019 put early stress on the vines.
April rains and frost were followed by damp conditions during flowering in June, affecting the eventual size of the crop.
A long dry and hot summer followed, giving ripeness to the grapes that had survived, though these dry conditions created more pressure for the vines, while increasing concentration in the grapes.
Concentration of acids in the grapes adds freshness and balance to wines with relatively high alcohol levels.
Quantity is down by an average of 25%.
Prices held or just above 2018 levels.
Ripe powerful reds with intense freshness – easy to taste, even at this early stage.
Joyful whites with full flavour yet finely tuned balance – think 2017 turned up.

The reds are excellent and expressing a vibrant freshness, the slightly elevated alcohol levels are not out of balance. These are classic Burgundy, which show the terroir beautifully.
The whites are captivating, perhaps more heterogenous. Most wines have got the balance just right and from Bourgogne Blanc to the famed slopes of Montrachet and Corton the fruit is glorious.
