Question: What about the 2022 grape crop levels for wines in France – especially Burgundy?
Answer: After all the weather issues, including drought conditions in several wine regions, the overall quantity results are most encouraging. Burgundy (including Chablis & Beaujolais – as well as Champagne) are nearly double the 2021 crop levels. The 2018 yields were very high but 2019, 2020, and 2021 were all much reduced so 2022 is also above the 5 year average. Hoping that increased vintage 2022 supplies will help stabilize prices but demand for Burgundy and nearby neighbours remains strong.
