Neal Martin: “So you would like the lowdown on the 2019 Burgundy vintage.”
Reader: “If you wouldn’t mind… So, is it any good?”
Neal Martin: “Yes. It’s very good.”
‘The bottom line is that I love the 2019 vintage for both whites and reds, however, it is not a faultless vintage. Quality surpasses winemakers’ expectations…the 2019s manage to retain that clarity and vivacity then these will give enormous pleasure…we can enjoy a vintage that defied the growing season and bestowed Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and lest we forget, Aligoté, at their full terroir-driven best…The fact that quality is high and that the 2019 vintage will bestow so much drinking pleasure is testament to both vine and winemaker. It remains a magical wine region that casts a spell over anyone who visits’
Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2020
As with recent warm vintages 2015 and 2018 wines from the lesser classifications and cooler terroirs did well and where growers marshalled their pickers to best effect. The wines show the silkiest textures and a surfeit of deep fruit allied to generous mouthfeel and body and the more favoured 1er and Grand Cru sites, depending on individual topography and location showed their mettle and inevitable… well…grandeur.
