Bourgogne Releases: Burgundy 2019 En Primeur


"I lost count of the delicious 2019s carrying the lowly Bourgogne appellation that I tasted, and these seemed so much better value than the grands crus that demand three- or even four-figure sums per bottle and many a long year of ageing." 
Jancis Robinson

Burgundy 2019 will be an En Primeur release like no other. Traditionally, our tasting would mark the official start to the campaign. This year we will be starting early, offering our Burgundy allocations as and when we receive them from our producers.

With significantly lower yields across the board, we strongly recommend securing wines upon release. Quality amongst the reds is outstanding; very good quality is to be found amongst the whites but we encourage you to be a little more discerning. This is also a chance to secure the wines at the best possible prices before the wines become physical stock, and – given their quality – prices increase.

We will begin by offering wines the Bourgogne wines, which displayed the most impressive levels of quality we have yet to see from this appellation. They were the overachievers of the vintage and there are some real gems to be found, both red and white. Like Bordeaux En Primeur, we will be sending out focused offers on wines and producers throughout the campaign. 

We were delighted to see that Jancis Robinson agrees with our Master Sommelier, Nicolas Clerc, on the significant increase in quality of the Bourgogne appellation:

[The] biggest improvement has been at the bottom end of the quality and price range. I lost count of the delicious 2019s carrying the lowly Bourgogne appellation that I tasted, and these seemed so much better value than the grands crus that demand three- or even four-figure sums per bottle and many a long year of ageing… Once the UK merchants make their offers over the next few weeks I hope to see some examples from really very respectable addresses for as little as £25 a bottle. That, believe me, is a steal in a burgundian context.”

For allocated wines, please note that priority will be given to customers who buy broadly across the vintage, especially the Bourgogne and Village wines. Securing these wines now will greatly increase your chances of receiving an allocation of the more limited 1er and Grand Cru releases in the coming weeks. Rest assured, this is not led by Armit but merely reflects the conditions with which we have to buy from the Domaines. We strive to be as transparent as possible in the allocation process.

Stay tuned for the Village wines, which we will be offering on 14th December.
