En Primeur | Burghound Recommends

Although the field of serious Burgundy critics is becoming ever more crowded, Allen Meadows (Burghound) still stands out as the original and the best. So, when he releases his review of a new vintage it is worth sitting up and taking notice.

He shared his report on the 2019 vintage in the Côte de Nuits last week, and it would not be an overstatement to describe it as positively rapturous. He comments on 2019 as: “Another great vintage ending in ‘9’ that was hot and very dry yet produced fresh, elegant and concentrated wines”, and reiterates that the wines are: “Ripe, fresh, concentrated and very high-quality.”

Burghound is adamant that wine lovers should engage with this vintage. “I believe that the 2019s belong in any serious Burgundy collector’s cellar; indeed I believe that it would be a significant mistake to pass on them... If you choose well, I believe that you will be extremely impressed.”

His write up is impressively, almost overwhelmingly, comprehensive, but he assists the buyer with a list of wines which he rates as “Outstanding” and “Top value.” We are lucky to have small parcels of five “Outstanding” wines: two model Marsannays and a trio of Gevrey Chambertins.

If you have not yet dipped a toe in the fabulous Burgundy 2019 pool, now is the moment.
