Burgundy En Primeur 2021

Burgundians farmed the 2021 season always knowing that their harvest would be the lowest in living memory. Indeed the last three vintages have yielded an aggregate of little over half the capacity in the top appellations. But, the all important growing season was exceptional and so grapes continued to develop well into September.

James Handford

The Handfords Burgundy En Primeur 2021 Offer is now open. The market is even hotter than was the climate. There’s not much left of the abundant 2018 vintage. 2019 and 2020 offered similarly dismal yields and global demand is upward only.

We have had an unprecedented number of enquiries. Many wines will need to be allocated, in some cases by the single bottle. For the most difficult wines we will finalise allocations on 20th January.

South Africa Great Estates 2019 and MR de Compostella 2020

The 2019 vintage was a triumph for the most diligent and well established exponents of classic reds in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl and now Swartland on the western reaches of the Cape.

The 2020 MR de Compostella is a rich, textured red with its primary, black fruit notes hiding behind a Milky Way of silk and chocolate.

Germany 2021 Pre-Release Offer

Unlike the hot and dry vintages of the three previous years, 2021 proved to be a much cooler affair. High-quality grapes were harvested, satisfying producers and promising good wines with less alcohol than previous years, but no less aroma.

Rieslings To Be Cheerful!!

130 Year Old Foudre Barrels – Winegut Wittman

OFFER CLOSES 28 FEB 2023

The Handfords Germany 2021 Pre-Release Offer is now open. The vintage may have been cool, but the market is hot. We’ve had to really push suppliers but, even then, many of the wines here we only have but a couple of cases to sell, so we may need to allocate.
