10. Harvest vol. by appellation

Starting with the 2010 harvest, here is the record of the potential volumes of wine produced each vintage, and the latest 5-year ‘running average’.

When using these figures it is important to keep in mind the word potential. The perfect example of this is the volume of white Musigny grand cru recorded at each harvest; there has been no white Musigny since 1992, but those grapes that ‘could’ take the label have to be recorded as such. Essentially for administrative purposes, it is not possible to know whether a producer will or will not declassify their production when harvested – so in each case the volume in hectolitres is the theoretical maximum for each appellation, not the exact amount labelled!

All figures are, of-course, courtesy the BIVB

    Hi Bill
    When do you think that the 2011 vintage information will be added? Apologies if it sounds like I am hassling you.
    Thanks
    Mark

  3. Claude Kolm

    Bill — The 2011 figures are up on the BIVB site — thanks to your efforts. :) Unfortunately, village and premier cru totals are no longer given separately and the five year averages are no longer provided.

  4. official 2012 burgundy harvest volumes – ouch!

  5. claude.kolm@gmail.com

    Bill — Thanks for the information. I think your explanation of “potential” needs to be further explained. I’ve asked François Millet of de Vogüé about the fact that white Musigny is always listed in the figures, even though none is produced. He told me that he always declares the amount harvested as Musigny and then later declassifies it to Bourgogne blanc, but it is the actual amount harvested, just not the amount that will be commercialized.

    Bill/Claude

    The same is true of Aloxe 1er blanc always an amount declared but never seen it in a bottle, although you can find a village white no 1er unless you guys no different?

    cheers
    Phil

  7. claude.kolm@gmail.com

    Phil – it looks as though Capitain-Gagnerot has fairly recently begun to bottle an Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru white (http://www.eldenselections.com/Maison-Capitain-Gagnerot-Aloxe-Corton-1er-Cru-La-Coutiere-2011). I have a vague memory (which may well be erroneous) that Maison Nicolas Potel showed me one once when Nicolas was still in charge there.

  8. phillip eaves

    Claude – thanks for that this is going straight on the must try list

  9. Michael Warner

    Hi Bill,

    Don’t suppose you have older versions of the 5 year average to hand ?

    Just wondering whether how much the 5 year average has been influenced by 3 of those vintages being “small”. Looking at them I get the feeling they haven’t moved enormously.

    Michael

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
