EN PRIMEUR BURGUNDY 2020
Cru Wine is delighted to announce that we will be offering a selection of excellent 2020 Burgundy En-Primeurs to our clients, beginning of December 2021. The unique growing season has produced an exceptional array of both red and white wines and it is certainly a vintage we recommend adding to your cellar; but as always, it’s important to select carefully.
Feedback from winemakers is very positive, with red wines reaching unexpected acidity levels despite a warm summer and high sugar concentration, and white wines showing superb balance and ageing potential.
2020 was of course a strange year and during the lockdown period, the weather was very warm and sunny in Burgundy, and until September the grapes were growing early – but the lack of rain showcased the importance of harvesting the grapes at the right period to achieve perfect maturity.
Our collectors and enthusiasts should look out for great Côte-de-Nuits appellations such as Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne Romanée, or look into the best wines from Meursault that will be a perfect representation of the depth of Chardonnay this year.
Do not hesitate to contact one of our team members for advice on this great vintage, or browse the wines currently available below on our online shop and via the allocation list.
