Burgundy 2020 – UK merchants making offers

Single barrel at Chanson

See this guide to our coverage of the 2020 burgundies.

We know how impatient UK burgundy lovers are to see tasting notes on the popular 2020s that are selling out fast, so we are rushing out those we have been able to take in London to supplement those recorded by Matthew Hayes in Burgundy and those on the various négociant wines already shown in London that we have already published. Our plan is to publish at least one set of tasting notes each day this week and early next week, most of them grouped by the UK merchant who hosted the tasting, which we hope may make it easier for you to find the wines. Although please note that some wines may be offered by several different merchants.

Note however that, thanks to COVID-19, only a small proportion of UK merchants making offers of these wines held a tasting this year.

Below is a list of all UK merchants offering 2020 burgundies en primeur we have identified to date. Where they have an offer on their website, we've linked to it.
