In Morey-St-Denis, Jacques Devauges at Domaine des Lambrays calls 2020 a ‘historic vintage’.
‘The broad lines are striking: 30% less rain than normal and 20% more sun,’ he says. ‘Sunburn was a problem for the vines classed in village or premier cru, but the grand cru parcels were planted parallel to the slope which provided protection. Still, the yields were meagre – 15 hl/ha for the old vines sensitive to coulure.’
