Burgundy New Releases: A Bit of Everything…

BY VINOUS | MAY 05, 2020

Our latest Burgundy update covers a smattering of wines Neal Martin and Antonio Galloni have tasted in recent months, everything from entry-level offerings all the way up to Grand Crus. For more on Burgundy, readers might want to revisit Neal’s 2018 Burgundy: Confounded Expectations and Antonio's Postcard from Chablis: The 2018s & 2017s.

Neal writes, “On 10 March I attended what turned out to be my last organized tasting, courtesy of Burgundy importers Flint Wines, before lockdown. How we laughed knocking elbows together instead of shaking hands, still not quite recognizing the gravity of the situation. The omens were there however – you only needed to look at the empty tables where Italian winemakers should have been pouring their wines. Despite the eerie atmosphere, I tasted around 30 wines that deserve to be reviewed not least because they reside at the affordable end of the Burgundy spectrum.”

Antonio adds, “I am glad I can finally find a home for my huge tasting at Remoissenet last fall that spanned virtually all the 2018 reds and whites, 50+ wines in all. Readers will find many of the highlights in appellations that don't often get much attention.”
