Read our vintage report for Burgundy 2021 and view our En Primeur offer for the vintage.
It was great to see Burgundy back to a more normal version of itself in November, following the ghost years of the pandemic. The vineyards looked marvellous during the misty mornings, in their beautiful autumn colours. Producers were eager and proud to share recent developments – new wines and vineyards, new wineries built, and, in some cases, to introduce us to the next generation. There was a welcome feeling of positivity in the air too, looking ahead to the future. Whispers of record-breaking prices being fetched at the ongoing Hospices de Beaune Auction surely helped. Also, no doubt, thanks to the abundant 2022 harvest already filling cellars, casting a welcome shadow over the trauma of 2021 and the challenges and historically low volumes that it brought.
