Burgundy 2020 tasted in France – G to L

Ploughing in Chassagne-Montrachet

The second of Matthew's three, alphabetically presented, tasting articles to be published this week. See also his overview of the vintage, Burgundy 2020 A to F and our guide to coverage of 2020 burgundy.

Elsewhere, availability will be slightly greater chez Benjamin...
