Burgundy 2022 En Primeur

Overview

After the myriad of issues with the 2021 vintage, 2022 represents a return to normality in Burgundy – not just in weather conditions but in the quantities produced and in the style of the wines. We met with happy growers who reported very few problems during the growing season. Heat and drought were concerns but rain fell at the right time, helping to produce well-balanced wines with great freshness and fine elegant tannins in the reds that will provide excellent drinking in the mid-term.

The Big Picture

Although 2022 has provided a welcome relief after the shortages of 2021, it is still just a return to a ‘normal’ quantity and average in terms of recent vintages rather than a bumper crop. There is still upward pressure on prices from ever increasing costs of production, as well as worldwide demand although this is tempered for some by gloomy economic forecasts. It is worth mentioning though that quality has never been higher, particularly in the lesser-known villages such as Auxey-Duresses and Marsannay, and with the parcels of Bourgogne Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from growers in well-known villages. Often these vineyards are very well situated close to very expensive names and excellent value can be found if you’re prepared to take the path less trodden. This is particularly true in a vintage like 2022, where good ripeness and well-balanced wines were achieved throughout the region.

The Wines

Balance, fruit and freshness are the keywords both for red and white wines. The Côte de Beaune whites have attractive floral aromas and white fruit flavours rather than yellow fruits. There is good freshness on the finish, but this is tartaric rather than malic acidity and so there is no harshness, and the wines will age well. Reds are similarly aromatic with red fruit flavours, fine, ripe tannins on the finish and again attractive freshness giving balance and vivacity to the wines. The Côte de Nuits wines have a slightly different feel, mainly as the harvest started a little later here. The wines are a touch fuller, both red and white, with some of the reds showing touches of black fruits too. Alcohol levels are generally in the 12.5%-13.5% region. Given that it was a fairly hot summer the fresh style might seem surprising, and growers offered various explanations, from the vines getting used to warmer conditions, harvesting dates being slightly earlier than usual, the vine completely shutting down at times and rain falling at just the right time. Growers too are much more used to such conditions and cope better with them in both the vineyard and winery. Whatever the reasons, the results are delicious.

The Weather

A season which growers described as ‘parfait’ began with mild conditions and, in contrast with 2021, little frost. April and May were warm and dry leading to an early budburst and flowering taking place in near perfect conditions leading to the promise of an abundant harvest. June saw very warm conditions along with some much-needed rain and problems in the north, with some mudslides in Gevrey-Chambertin and hail around Chorey as well as the southern part of the Mâconnais. From then on it was extremely hot until mid-August which helped avoid diseases such as mildew and oidium, making life easier for the growers. The dryness did cause the skins to thicken on the grapes and led to the vines tending to close down, both of which reduced the potential yield and so made this an average vintage in terms of quantity rather than enormous. Right on cue some showers arrived on the Côte d’Or at the end of August to help complete the maturation process. Harvesting in the Côte de Beaune generally began at the end of August with the Côte de Nuits following on a few days later. Generally harvesting took place quickly in perfect conditions in about 10 days as sugar levels and therefore potential alcohol levels were increasing rapidly.

    An opportunity to sample a range of styles from a clutch of excellent producers. Bachelet-Monnot’s Bourgogne Pinot Noir is based on their superb Maranges holdings in the south of the Côte de Beaune; Prunier’s Hautes-Côtes is lip-smacking, fruity and shows a little wildness, while Rollin’s example shows greater density and weight from vines up to 50 years old up. Crossing north to the Cote de Nuits, around the village of Arcenant due west of Nuits-Saint-Georges, Domaine Michel Gros’ Fontaine St Martin is a serious proposition and shows the value in the roads less travelled. These will drink on release but the Bachelet-Monnot and Gros wines will benefit from a few years in bottle.

    A snapshot of Burgundy 2022 whites starting in the far north with an exciting new Chablis for our offer from the rising star that is Samuel Billaud. From the Côte d’Or, Domaine de Bellene’s Savigny is silky and cool while Rollin’s Pernand-Verglesses is notably full, ripe and rich, and we round things off in the far south with Château Fuissé’s golden, generous and fresh Saint-Véran. There is a little cellaring potential in all of these wines but they are full of charm and show the forward nature of 2022 beautifully.Case includes:6x Saint-Véran, Château Fuissé6x Savigny-lès-Beaune Blanc, Domaine de Bellene6x Chablis, Samuel Billaud6x Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc, Rollin Père et Fils

    A closer look at the southern reaches of the Côte d’Or, highlighting the range of styles of the 2022 Pinot Noirs, leading with a brilliant turn from Tollot-Beaut, whose Chorey-lès-Beaune Pièce du Chapitre combines great richness with a natural freshness. The Savigny-lès-Beaune from Domaine de Bellene shows some fine structure overlaid with gorgeous creamy red fruits, while the old vines of Borgeot’s Santenay have produced a wonderfully complex Pinot with a moreish mineral and savoury quality. Representing the Côte Chalonnaise and another example of the fringe villages performing especially well in the warmer vintages, Les Chaponniers from Jacqueson lightens things up a little further, offering a mix of ripe fruits with some classic crunch, and cool, chalky mineral notes.This collection will provide good early drinking and some sound mid-term cellaring.Case includes:6x Chorey-lès-Beaune, Pièce du Chapitre, Monopole, Tollot-Beaut6x Savigny-lès-Beaune, Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de Bellene6x Santenay, Vieilles Vignes, P & L Borgeot6x Rully, Les Chaponnières, P & M Jacqueson

    Some of the grander premier crus from the most famous villages can be a stretch but here is a collection of Tanners’ favourites which won’t make you afraid of reaching for the corkscrew in a couple of years’ time. Samuel Billaud who joins our offer for the first time, brings a lesser-seen premier cru Fourneaux which will delight those looking for Chablis throwback. The Prudhon’s Saint-Aubins are always smart options and the Sentier du Clou is especially fine-tuned this year with great potential. Both whites show the more serious side of Burgundy 2022. The Clos du Val from Michel and Estelle Prunier leans in to the charming nature of the vintage but as is so often proved, it can keep for 30 years! Finally, the Clos de la Boutière from Bachelet-Monnot might be a best-ever release: good bones and energy, and lovely layers of fruit. These are all wines which will benefit some time in the cellar before approaching but the nature of the vintage will make them appealing on release!Case includes:6x Saint-Aubin Blanc 1er cru Sur le Sentier du Clou, Henri Prudhon6x Chablis 1er cru Fourneaux, Samuel Billaud6x Auxey-Duresses 1er cru Clos du Val, Michel Prunier et Fille6x Maranges 1er cru Les Clos Roussots, Bachelet-Monnot 2022

    2022 is a fine vintage across the board but the grand cru reds show the greatest potential. Tollot-Beaut’s wonderfully expressive Corton-Bressandes represents the Côte de Beaune and all of that aromatic red fruit; Sebastian Odoul-Cocquard has produced the most inviting and seductive yet seriously structured Charmes-Chambertin; Drouhin-Laroze was a breathtaking visit and we have two incredible wines: ‘Bon-nez Mah-rez’ as Caroline Drouhin playfully called it, is dark, muscular and cool, very stylish and gives a true ‘terroir’ feel, while their sumptuous Clos de Vougeot has been lauded as the best in range this year!Case includes:3x Corton-Bressandes grand cru, Tollot-Beaut3x Bonnes Mares grand cru, Drouhin-Laroze3x Charmes-Chambertin grand cru, Odoul-Coquard3x Clos de Vougeot grand cru, Drouhin-Laroze 2022

    Lots of immediate appeal and a classically sunny expression of Mâcon, combining a saline and citrusy freshness with succulent, ripe-almost sticky apricot, and peach. Lovely texture, lots of attractive floral notes too. Enjoy the fruit and aromatic intensity!

    Pure Crochette after the 2021 (which had a little blending support), this offers a wonderfully measured approach. A certain fine tension, clear mineral influence, and a balanced combination of citrus, white fruits, and a touch of the exotic. Lush but restrained, this will drink well on release but cellars well too. 3-9 years.

    Shows a step up in richness and structure over the Milly and Prissé but will need a little time to really show it's best. A mix of spring flowers, yellow fruits, and a host of citrusy aromas, with some apricot and quince on the palate over a fine mineral base. Lots here.

    Old vines (some from the 1950s) produce fruit with excellent concentration and a ripe character that temptingly leans over to the lush and tropical. Picking earlier is often required here and the deep clay soils help with dry vintages but if you're looking for a crowd-pleaser, then this is for you! 2-7 years.

    An aromatic fruit salad of a wine with a great blend of orchard and stone fruit but with very pure, racy acidity which stops the whole effect being too sweet or cloying and gives the wine a fine, elegant finish. Very poised and precise.

    Fresh white peach aroma with delicate floral notes. Characterful with plenty of weight of ripe peach and pear fruit and a lovely mouthfeel. A charming wine that never disappoints.

    Rich and opulent this is always a big open wine showing more power than some of the others here. Weighty but never over blown or clumsy, the fruit has a lovely sweetness beautifully balanced by the tension of the vintage. Luscious!

    Such an appealing nose! It is focused and tense but ample too with notes of apple and pear fruit and a persistent cool, mineral feel. The palate has a concentrated attack and an immediate crisp freshness, showing a little mid palate texture over a core of wet stones and salinity. We?re delighted with the new addition to the list. 0-5 years.

    Super freshness with fragrant white fruit, citrus and oyster shell aromas over small gravels. The palate shows an amazing intensity from the off, matched by great richness and a framework of bracing acidity. Tense but nicely balanced, with a lovely, perfumed quality and tangy, moreish salinity. Powerful, characterful and texturally very fine. 2-9 years.

    Complex nose which is taut and youthful, with orchard fruits coming through. This is notably fuller than the premier cru wines, weightier and broader with super intensity. Cool and tantalising with a speckled mineral frame, a little tonic and salinity. This undulates, it's layered and shows moreish definition. 5-15 years.

    White

    A smoky, spicy nose with delicate mineral notes. The palate feels a touch creamier than the Fourneaux but remains delicate and poised. There is super intensity, it is ripe yet taut with an almost soapy fragrant character, a tonic dryness, and finely mineral vs huge concentration. 2-9 years.
