BURGUNDY 2022 EN PRIMEUR
The new En Primeur season is here and the vintage is poised to be an exceptional one. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just starting on your journey, this is your chance to secure some of the finest wines from the region.
Over the coming months, this page will act as your guide to the 2022 En Primeur campaign. Our team travelled to Burgundy in October for our annual tastings with Domaines and producers – an essential trip for us to ensure we’re providing you with the best advice and information. We’ve compiled our full report on the vintage, the latest releases and insights to Burgundy below, along with which releases we feel offer the best opportunity for you to purchase during the campaign.
“With higher yields across the whole region and excellent overall quality the 2022 Burgundies show incredible promise.”

What the critics are saying about 2022 Burgundy...
“2022 is an amazingly consistent vintage…I would recommend going large in 2022, large in the sense of a broad range because there are so many really good wines at all levels.”
Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
“2022 produced, surprisingly enough given the exceptionally hot and dry growing season, fresh, bright and utterly delicious, if not classically styled, reds and whites…The wines are indeed ripe and rich yet they manage to retain unexpectedly good freshness and vibrancy as they have less of that extremely sunny character of the prior vintages…To my way of thinking, perhaps the best attribute of the finest 2022 whites is just how refreshing they are. And by the same token, the best attribute of the best 2022 reds is their generous textures, a seductive blend of velvet and punch if you will. In sum, the best 2022s incorporate a bit of everything without too much of anything.”
Allen Meadows, Burghound
“I cannot remember a Burgundy vintage that elicited so much joy from barrel…The 2022 vintage is Burgundy’s latest trick: a treasure trove of bright ‘n bushy-tailed whites and reds in a season that implied such wines would be impossible, wines predestined to give immense drinking pleasure.”
Neal Martin, Vinous
“After a week spent in Chablis tasting 375 wines, it is clear that 2022 is a very good year – and potentially an excellent one. Although a warm and very dry vintage, yields were not excessive and, crucially, acidity is high. The resulting wines are very well balanced with a lovely combination of the freshness and minerality which typifies Chablis, combined with fleshy, ripe, stone- and tree-fruit flavours.”
Andy Howard MW, Decanter
