2020 Burgundy 1er Cru

burgundy-bourgogne-villages


The release of these 1er Cru wines brings the opportunity to dive deep into the fascinating – and delicious – nuances of Burgundy's great terroirs. From Gevrey to Volnay, from Chablis to Chassagne, all of the celebrated appellations are to be discovered.

The whites offer precision, tension and generosity, and quality is very consistent across the board. The reds are deep in colour, with good concentration, firm tannins and excellent structure, whilst also showing surprising freshness and tension for this uniquely 'solar' vintage. To help you in our selection, we have included tasting notes from our Master Sommelier, Nicolas Clerc.

Quantities are limited and to avoid disappointment we recommend you submit your requests as soon as possible.
