Burgundy en primeur 2020

Dear Wine Lovers,
Burgundy in 2020 is an exceptional, outstanding vintage. Both reds and whites show beautiful terroir expression, remarkable concentration yet notable elegance.
The region saw its earliest-ever harvest last year owing to another hot, dry growing season. However, the wines themselves are a wonderful contradiction to the cliché of a scorching summer – retaining elegance and balance thanks to relatively cool nights, drought conditions that helped to preserve acidity, and the new ways in which growers are adapting to climate change in the vineyard.
This vintage is small but full of intensity and harmony. The standout red wines are concentrated and balanced, with aromatic fruit, lovely terroir notes and lots of supple tannins. Their aromatic, balanced white counterparts are imbued with freshness and elegance.
Burgundy in 2020 is an exceptional, outstanding vintage.

The Burgundy en primeur – a real experience
Burgundy does not have a traditional en primeur week. The best-known event is the wine auction at the Hospices de Beaune, which is the world’s largest charity wine auction.
To this day, the Hospices de Beaune is funded mainly through income from the vineyards bequeathed to the foundation by patients since it was established. Every year, over the third weekend in November, it celebrates the “Trois Glorieuses”, or the Three Glorious Days. In the course of these festivities, wines produced from the foundation’s holdings are sold at auction. For the wine trade, the prices obtained at the auction are an indicator of the quality of a vintage.
Each auction is preceded by a tasting with experts from around the globe, where each vintage is discussed and assessed.
What’s unique about the Burgundy en primeur?
If you are a Burgundy fan, our en primeur offer is a unique opportunity to secure your favourite bottles and discover new wines. Order and pay now, and the wines will be delivered in autumn 2022. Waiting for these wines will of course be half the fun.
Wines from 2020 are very approachable from a young age but have excellent ageing potential. Therefore, we urge you to put a couple of cases from this latest vintage in your cellar. We also recommend our Mondovino nouveau wines to Burgundy newcomers and aficionados alike.
Mondovino Nouveau
Do the appellations Hautes-Côtes de Nuits or Maranges mean anything to you? If not, you're in good company, as they are relatively unknown municipalities.
As always, we have sought out and found insider gems offering great value for money from this latest vintage. Belonging to our Mondovino nouveau range, they offer you the opportunity to try something new. Burgundy's prestigious crus are among the world's most sought-after wines. International demand for Burgundy is spiralling, with top wines becoming even rarer and more expensive. Mondovino nouveau is a chance for Burgundy newcomers and aficionados alike to experience Burgundy "off the beaten track" at very reasonable prices.
