2020 White Burgundy Part 1:
Two from Bouzeron and the rest from the Mâconnais – the first vintage with 1er Crus in the Mâconnais!

My roundup of the statistics and my overall impression of the vintage to come when I publish the ‘White Burgundy Part 2’ with the white domaines of the Côte de Beaune. But, hopefully, there’s something here for you to get your teeth into while waiting for that. White Burgundy Part 3 will be my usual trip to Chablis in January!

Cheers to all…

The Finest Wines of Burgundy

A portable, hard-wearing guide to the Côte d’Or plus 90 producers of note and their best wines. Truth be told, there should have been 150 great producers – but not in the 320 pages that were prescribed.
It’s probably time to start working on a new one – eh?
