Premier Cru Red Releases: Burgundy En Primeur 2019

#Lavignecontinue…

It is with great pleasure that we offer our first tranche of 1er Crus from Burgundy, beginning with the superlative reds.

As our Master Sommelier Nicolas Clerc wrote in his vintage report here, the singularity and precision of the 2019 reds is genuinely striking. You can buy the red wines across appellations and price points with absolute confidence, such is the outstanding quality.

In 2019, the singularity of vineyard and terroir shines through – and what better way to experience this typicity than through the fascinating and utterly delicious complexities of Burgundy’s 1er Cru vineyards?

We heard on a number of occasions reference to the 1989 vintage, a year of exceptional reds defined by balance and approachability in youth, but with all the concentration of fruit to reward time in the cellar.

Of course, if you wish to discuss any wine in particular, or would like further guidance, then please do not hesitate to contact the Private Client Team. We look forward to hearing from you!

Stay tuned for the second tranche of white burgundy releases on Friday 8th January!
