Bourgogne Week comes to London

Next month will see the UK’s first official “Bourgogne Week”, featuring a series of Burgundy-themed events in London to coincide with the region’s 2013 vintage launch.

As merchants hold their annual en primeur Burgundy tastings, the Bureau Interprofessionnel des Vins de Bourgogne (BIVB) will install itself from 12-16 January at the Mayfair branch of 28-50 Wine Workshop & Kitchen.

Working in partnership with 28-50’s owner Xavier Rousset MS, the BIVB will use this space to host “The Bourgogne Wine Bar” as a focus point for growers, merchants, customers and journalists to meet. Among the activities taking place here will be a tasting on Thursday 15 January from 3-8pm, which will feature premier cru Chablis wines from the 2012 vintage.

In a bid to help the trade navigate the busy series of tastings, dinners and receptions surrounding this peak of the Burgundy trading season, the BIVB will run a website featuring a timetable of events. www.bourgogne-week.com is due to go live on 22 December.

This promotional push for Burgundy follows a difficult period for the region after a series of small, challenging harvests. Although the 1.5 million hectolitres expected from the 2014 vintage are expected to help address this shortfall, BIVB figures released this month show a 13.5% slide in exports for the nine months to September 2014.
