Three new white appellations for the 2020 vintage

Jean-Claude Boisset produces wine in Burgundy, mainly Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, that are smooth, honest, precise, silky and fabulously fruity. A collection of forty-odd wines, 65% red and 35% white.


The 2020 harvests

The harvests took place in reverse order. They started with ripe reds before whites. It was a very good harvest but sunburnt berries had to be removed, especially pinot noir, whilst chardonnay fared better in the heat. It was a case of quality over quantity as there was a low yield with highly concentrated reds. That said, the whites produced the right amounts with a good balance of sugar/acidity. The outstanding ripeness meant the whole harvest could be made into wine depending on the plots.


2020's style: balanced and concentrated

The chardonnays have a good balance of sugar/acidity which is a good sign for a good Burgundy.
