The Burgundy 2021 en primeur campaign is due to begin in early 2023. We are now inviting customers to register interest and join our dedicated offers list for the pending campaign.
We made two visits to the region this autumn and were very happy with the quality across the Côte d'Or. After a succession of ‘solar’ vintages 2021 has delivered classically proportioned, ethereal reds, and tensile, focussed whites that will delight collectors of the region. However, as has been widely publicised, the vintage is one of the smallest in the region’s history, with many producers losing upwards of 70% from their Chardonnay crop and 50% of Pinot Noir. In view of this we are anticipating demand outstripping supply.

If you would like more information on any of the wines detailed below, or would like some advice on Fine Wine buying, please contact our Fine Wine Team who will be happy to help you with your query.
It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment ‘up front’, you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, before the wines are shipped to the UK during the course of 2023 and early 2024.
How does payment work?
Now you need only pay the ‘cellar door’ price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £2.23 a bottle at today’s prices) plus VAT on the total. Delivery (currently £7.99) is also applicable, unless you are a member of Unlimited. Alternatively, you can keep your case stored In Bond or Duty Paid in our state of the art temperature- and humidity-controlled customer storage facility (currently £12.60 per case per year).
The advantages of 'En Primeur' buying
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn’t enough to go around. En Primeur guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines at opening prices - providing you are quick!
Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we’ll contact you to advise which are still available.
