Fine Wine Market Report October 2020


This month our Fine Wine Market Report tracks the impact of the U.S. elections and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic on the global markets. We also take a trip to Burgundy with Master of Wine Justin Knock to get an insider’s look at the 2019 vintage before the En Primeur releases in a few months time.

“Collectors should be excited by the 2019 wines from Burgundy which will be released over the next few months. The same seasonal conditions that prevailed in Bordeaux producing superb wines have shone on Burgundy, and in a rare confluence of quality both whites and reds are on stellar form.

The only vintages this century that can be compared to 2019, with exceptional quality in both colours, are 2010 (bright, pure acid-driven wines) and 2002 (perfumed, concentrated and expansive). The key words this year are concentration and freshness with notably rich tannins in the reds. Unlike the 2017s and 2018s which have an immediacy and appeal to early drinking, the 2019s will be wines for the long-haul that will richly reward collectors over many decades.”
