This vintage is going to be awful, assuming there even *is* a vintage - my sources are telling me that several parcels in Burgundy have been entirely lost for the year, and that one well-known producer is combining multiple Premier Cru vineyards into a generic "Bourgogne," or perhaps a generic village wine (such as "Chambolle-Musigny"), but the "Premier Cru" designation won't be there. This is, of course, up to each producer to decide, but suffice it to say: 2016 is a disaster in both Burgundy and the Loire Valley (which includes Vouvray, Sancerre, Chinon, etc.).
