After a tense year for the Bourgogne wines, the 2022 vintage looks promising

21/09/2022

The cellars are nearly empty. Hopefully, there will be volumes in 2022!

In recent years, yields in Bourgogne varied significantly. If one takes a long-term view, annual production has been falling slowly since 2003, with the 2021 vintage only serving to amplify this trend.

Fortunately, the 2022 vintage promises to be a generous one, and comes at the right moment to reinvigorate the industry in terms of availability and sales potential.

 

  • The small 2021 harvest (around 997,000 hl, or just over 132.9 million bottles) had a big impact on availability and sales from the estate.
  • While stocks on estates at the end of July 2022 seem to be well below the five-year average, these are supplemented by equivalent stock levels with the négoce trade.
  • In terms of exports, revenue continues to grow, unlike volumes which, despite everything, remain higher than they were in 2019. They were up 13% by volume for the first six months of 2022 compared to the same period the previous year.
