UK merchants making 2011 burgundy offers

4 Jan 2013 by Jancis Robinson

On Monday we'll be attending the first three of the 27 tastings of 2011 burgundies that will be held in London over the next two weeks. We will also be publishing the hundreds of tasting notes on this interesting vintage that I recorded in Burgundy five weeks ago plus any others we have so far accumulated. They'll be presented in five alphabetically organised tasting articles, which we will continue to edit and update on the basis of what Julia, Richard and I taste in London over the next two weeks.

Below are the UK merchants we suspect will be making an offer of 2011 burgundies. The list is based on those who made offers of 2010s but we have also made some additions. The merchants in bold have already confirmed that they are offering 2011s.  Our picture shows orders being placed at J&B's 2010 burgundy tasting last year.
