Burgundy 2013 En Primeur Tasting - 15th January

Thank you to everyone who turned out for our first tasting of the New Year on Thursday 15th January. And, what a way to start! 61 wines on show from 21 domaines and with 6 of those producers joining us for the event.

The 2013 vintage in Burgundy has had some trouble in the press due to the small volume, therefore the fact that we had so many wines on show was a great treat and there was a high level of quality across the board. The whites showed good acidity, plenty of fruit and elegance. The reds were beautiful and light displaying clean and fresh red fruits which will develop over time into something worth holding on to.

A big thank you to Lyn from Domaine des Malandes, Jean-Michel from Domaine Jean Chartron, Jean-Jacques and Agnès Girard from Domaine Jean Jacques Girard, Marc Olivier from Domaine Francois Buffet, and Dominique from Domaine Hudelot Baillet for making the journey over from Burgundy to talk to the customers and teach us more about your delicious wines.

If you would like to attend our other En Primeur tastings please either book on-line at or phone the shop on 0117 921 41 46.
