Top Côte Chalonnaise 2020 en primeur wines

Keep an eye on the red wines from the Côte Chalonnaise in 2020, reports Charles Curtis MW, as these will offer structure and lush fruit early on, as well as good ageing potential.

By every measure, the Côte Chalonnaise was the region most affected by water stress, heatwave and sunburn in 2020.

The region was consistently two weeks or more in advance of the norm. The midpoint of budbreak was in March, of flowering, in May, and of veraison in July.
