2 February 2021 Some new merchants who are part of the Vindependents buying group have been added or emboldened below. Tasting notes on their offer to follow on Thursday 4 February.
9 January 2021 We are continuing to update this list with the offers that are now coming out.
31 December 2020 It is looking likely that, what with the last-minute Brexit deal and all the uncertainty surrounding it, burgundy offers in the UK may be made a little later than usual. Growers, alarmed by possible additional bureaucracy and associated additional costs, have been slower than usual to decide on prices and allocations. See discussion of these factors in this thread and this thread in our Members' forum.
17 December 2020 Below is a list of the UK merchants we suspect may be offering 2019 burgundies en primeur, although the logistics are much more difficult than usual this year. The list is provisional and based on those who have made offers in the past. Merchants in bold have already confirmed that they are offering the 2019s. Where they have an offer on their website, we've linked to it. Feel free to suggest updates to this list via email@example.com.
Please note that many, if not most, wines may be offered by several different merchants. Most orders this year will presumably be placed online since Burgundy Week with its crowded customer tastings will not take place this January thanks to pandemic-inspired social restrictions.
