Best Burgundy 2020 premier cru wines

In his Burgundy 2020 en primeur report, Charles Curtis MW concludes that across both red and white wines, 2020 is certainly a vintage worth buying. Here he highlights some of the top-scoring premier cru wines worth seeking out.

‘The unique conditions – economic as well as meteorological – of 2020 mean it is an exceptional Burgundy vintage,’ said Charles in his Burgundy 2020 en primeur vintage report.

Yet he found himself questioning whether the wines from the 2020 vintage truly reflect what most consumers perceive to be a Burgundian style.

Across the region yields were much lower than usual and the fruit was particularly concentrated.
