Burgundy En Primeur 2017

We will be visiting Burgundy in November of this year to taste the 2017 vintage wines from cask. We will then be launching our offer in January 2019.

Initial vintage report

Early indications are that the 2017 vintage has resulted in high yields from an early harvest in both the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. Some reports go as far as saying this vintage could be largest yield since 2009.

The much earlier than usual picked Pinot Noir is fruity with medium acidity and pleasant tannins. Chardonnay is also of good quality; the wines are ripe and have high acidity, which resulted from much cooler than usual nights.

Chablis was not so fortunate in terms of volume having suffered from frost, once again. But the quality here remains very good – so some joy for Chablisienne producers.

Watch this space for details of our offer launch and customer cask tasting event in January.
