Best Burgundy 2019 Premier Cru wines

After tasting more than 700 Burgundy en primeur samples, Charles Curtis MW says 2019 will take its place alongside other exceptional recent years in Burgundy. Here he selects his top scoring Premier Cru wines from this hedonistic vintage.

The 2019 vintage in Burgundy will be remembered for its ‘intense fruit, firm structure and supple texture’, says Charles Curtis MW who compiled the 2019 en primeur report for Decanter.com.

‘The reds are generally ripe and forward, with plenty of body and velvety tannic structure and the whites are also rich but show remarkable balance despite the heat,’ he wrote.
