Hail Storm Ravages Burgundy's Vineyards Again!‏

Hail Storm Burgundy

Burgundy suffers huge losses again putting enormous pressure on producers...

 
For the third year running huge hailstorms have hit Burgundy decimating vineyards across the region. Once again the Cote de Beaune was the worst hit but the Cote de Nuits did not escape unscathed. Reports indicate crop losses of between 40% and 90% in the worst hits areas of Beaune, Volnay, Pommard and Meursault. Losses of around 10-25% have been reported in and around Vosne-Romanee.
 
After 4 small vintages in a  row this is devastating for vignerons.
 
2014 was proceeding very well prior to this catastrophe. An abundant vintage of high quality like 2009 was what everyone was hoping for. Sadly this will not be so. There will be enormnous pressure to increase prices in an already starved market.
 
If you have held off buying 2012 Burgundies I suggest you don't think for too long. It is a superb vintage and with the issues with 2013 and now 2014 demand for wines still available is going to rocket. It may look a little expensive now but when the 2014's are released you will reflect on what a bargain it was.
 
It would also pay to have a look at what 2009's, 2010's and 2011's we have left as these were priced at lower ex-cellar prices with a stronger Australian Dollar.
