2010 Burgundy. Going, going, almost gone.

2010 Burgundy Almost Gone

2010 is, without question, a very special vintage in Burgundy. Rarely do both red and white wines reach such heights in the same year....

 

2010 was a small vintage. In fact the lack of raw material was what made the year so fine. If the crop had been large like 2009 it is doubtful that we would be enjoying wines with the depth, precision and minerality that make 2010 so special.

 

2011 and 2012 were also small vintages, with many vignerons reporting crop levels in 2012 of around 50% of average. It is going to be a serious vintage but how easy will it be to buy?

 

The major problem with small vintages is the financial pressure it puts on producers. The costs of running a business do not change a lot making the only viable option a price increase. We have seen this with the 2011 vintage and rest assured we will see it again in 2012.

 

I am sure in a few years time we will all look back at 2009 and 2010 Burgundy and reflect on what bargains they were, especially when we consider the super quality of the wines.

 

Whilst our stocks are dwindling there are still opportunities to buy some tremendous 2010 Red and White Burgundy at appealing prices. In fact, our next container contains a number of makers who either bottle late, missed the previous container, are new to our portfolio or were so good we ordered more.

 

That means you can still procure these wines at 2010 vintage prices less our 15% Pre Arrival Discount. By my reckoning that makes them quite a bargain.

 

Before the wines go for good it is worth taking a look at what is still available. You will pat yourself on the back in a few years time!
