Best value 2019 white Burgundy en primeur to buy

Charles Curtis MW tasted more than 700 en primeur samples for his Burgundy 2019 report, here he picks out his top value white 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.

Curtis commented that the ‘whites are rich but show remarkable balance despite the heat’.

‘Low yields and the heat combined to concentrate both acidity and sugar in the grapes, allowing both reds and whites to maintain a very fine balance of richness and structure.

In the Côte de Beaune, one can find superb wines in both white and red. Generally, the reds from Pommard were more homogeneous than those of Volnay, while in Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet, cooler sites at higher elevations tended to produce the best results.’ he wrote.
