Vintage conditions: 2019 was, on paper, a rather
extreme vintage, yet the vines proved remarkably resilient while the wines are
remarkably classical in profile. “We are convinced that the vines are adapting
to warmer, drier years, and we find this very reassuring,” observed Aubert de
Villaine of Domaine de la
Romanée-Conti in
speaking to Kelley, a sentiment shared by
Burgundy lovers. 

 

Kelley summarises the 2019 vintage:
“A mild and dry winter set the stage for drought conditions later in the
season. Budbreak came early, and spring was comparatively cool. Summer was warm
and sunny, with heat waves in June and July compounding with hydric stress to
slow ripening. August and early September were cooler and sometimes cloudy,
though sunny conditions returned for harvest; but it was a dry north wind,
rather than excessive temperatures, that concentrated both sugars and acidities
alike in the final weeks before picking began.”

 

Grape performance: Says Kelley, “This is a
thrilling year for Pinot Noir, delivering wines bursting with head-turning
perfume and fresh, succulent fruit. Supple and enveloping, they are
simultaneously serious and immensely charming. In Chardonnay, 2019 is more heterogenous. The small crop ripened
rapidly, and the results are invariably muscular and concentrated; but the
year’s best white Burgundies are as incisive as they are powerful, with bright
acidity to balance their undeniable weight, and attentive producers excelled.”

Ten favourites that show the 2019 vintage at its best:

2019 Domaine
Arnoux-Lachaux Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru
(RP 97-99 points)

“One of the wines of the
vintage, Lachaux’s 2019 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru soars from the glass
with a kaleidoscopic bouquet of raspberries, blood orange zest, peonies,
violets and exotic spices, complemented by subtle hints of coniferous forest
floor and raw cocoa.”

 

2019 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (RP 95-97 points)

“The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru
Clos des Chênes is a magical bottle in the making…. Medium to full-bodied,
layered and complete, it’s elegantly powerful, with lively acids, powdery
tannins and a long, perfumed finish.”

 

2019 Domaine Guffens-Heynen Pouilly-Fuissé 1er Jus des Hautes des Vignes (RP 94-96+ points)

“A cuvée composed of the
free run and first press juice from Guffens’s best parcels in the appellation,
the 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé 1er Jus des Hautes des Vignes is showing beautifully.”

2019 Domaine Jean-Claude Bachelet Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
Blanchot-Dessus
(RP 94-96 points)

resonant.”

 

2019 Domaine Jean et J L Trapet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur (RP 92-94 points)

“Fleshier and more
enveloping than the Petite Chapelle, the 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos
Prieur exhibits notes of plums, sweet wild berries, rich soil tones, mandarin
orange and raw cocoa.”

 

2019 Domaine Simon Bize et Fils Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Aux Vergelesses (RP 93-95 points)

“The 2019
Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Aux Vergelesses is a striking wine…. Medium to
full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it’s vibrant and velvety, with
lively acids and a long, perfumed finish.”

 

2019 Domaine Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle-Musigny Village (RP 91-93 points)

“The 2019
Chambolle-Musigny Village is superb, mingling aromas of cherries and
raspberries with hints of dark chocolate, potpourri and spices.”

 

2019 Domaine Henri Germain Meursault Le Limozin (RP 91-93 points)

Medium to full-bodied,
textural and precise, it combines impressive mid-palate volume with terrific
cut.

 

2019 Domaine Duroché Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Etelois (RP 91-93 points)

“It’s a terrific cuvée
from this optimally situated parcel that borders Griotte-Chambertin on one side
and Charmes-Chambertin on the other.”

 

2019 Domaine
Dureuil-Janthial Rully Blanc
(RP 89-91 points)

“Medium-bodied, chiseled
and concentrated, with tangy acids and a mouthwateringly saline finish, this
will be delicious out of the gates–though don’t discount its capacity to age.”
