Burgundy 2017 vintage: full report now live January 8th, 2019


The first key fact about 2017 is the return to normal, even quite generous volumes. This matters in general in terms of the market-place, but it really matters in particular for those vignerons in the Côte de Beaune especially, whose crops were so badly damaged by hail for three years in a row (2012-2014) and then by the frosts of 2016. Happily 2017 is both generous and of good to very good quality, with in general a preference for the white wines. For both colours, the grapes were exceptionally healthy and free from rot.

There are several relatively new names in the reports to find out about – read up on Domaine Henri Magnien and Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini in Gevrey-Chambertin, the latest member of the Colin family of Chassagne/St Aubin (Joseph), Domaine Henri & Gilles Buisson in St Romain, Agnès Paquet in the Hautes Côtes, and a host of others.
