Burgundy 2021 En Primeur

Our annual trip to the Cote d’Or to taste the new vintage is always a highlight of the year. This year felt extra special as travel restrictions that had kept us stuck at home were finally lifted. The 2021 was a reasonably brutal year in Burgundy, with numerous issues that have sadly hammered the production size significantly.

 

Plainly, 2021 will be a varied vintage and generalising it will be a difficult thing to do. Still, there are indeed some exceptional Pinot and Chardonnay examples that have triumphed over the dramatic vintage. Despite the challenges imposed by the weather, these wines saw a remarkable comeback to the classical style, with very moderate alcohol levels falling between 12.5 to 13.2%.

 

Careful selection is required for this vintage, and our buying team is pleased to provide more details and insider tips after a fruitful tasting week at Burgundy. Stay closely with us on this exciting campaign!

Christian Moreau Chablis 2021 (6x75cl)

€87 - €113

2021

Christian Moreau Chablis 2021 (6x75cl)

Vinous (86-88)

The 2021 Chablis Village has a pretty apple blossom-scented bouquet. The palate is clean and fresh, perhaps a little shrill at first, but there is ample weight and concentration on the finish. Drink over the next four to five years.

Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2021 (6x75cl)

Vinous (93-95)

The 2021 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru was taken from tank rather than barrel. This was primal on the nose and difficult to read. The palate is more expressive: finely tuned with a fine bead of acidity, tensile and saline, it does not possess the complexity of Raveneau's Les Clos tasted an hour or two before, but it has great penetration and a compelling flinty finish. Excellent.

Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2021 (6x75cl)

Vinous (92-94)

The one-hectare parcel that constitutes the 2021 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru yielded five barrels this year. This also has a heavy reduction and is quite yeasty at the moment. The palate is well balanced with a marine-influenced entry, flecks of white chocolate complementing the citrus fruit with a longer finish than the Blanchot. Fine sour lemon mixed with orange rind on the aftertaste. Excellent.

2021

Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir 2021 (6x75cl)

Vinous (92-94)

The 2021 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru was completely fermented in barrel from which my sample is taken. It has a taut and linear bouquet, lemon curd and light green apple notes with underlying granitic scents. The palate is well balanced with a pure entry, lemon zest and orange rind intermixed with light nettle and gooseberry notes towards the strict finish. Give this well-crafted Vaudésir a couple of years in bottle.
