Bourgogne Chardonnay

Grown Just Down the Road

Our delectable and highly quaffable Bourgogne Chardonnay is produced from a group of plots situated in the hamlet of Meurgers du Limousin, in the commune of Meursault. The plot has a total surface area of 1.3 hectares, around twice the size of Clos Marey-Monge’s Chantrerie plot. Surrounded by such prestigious climats, our Bourgogne Chardonnays are infused with the characteristics of wines from Meursault. We make this wonderful white wine by half fermenting it in vintage casks and half in stainless steel tanks. This allows the wine to keep its fruity essence while expanding its depth and roundness.

Sunshine In A Glass

Flashes of soft green amplify the bright, light golden shine that illuminate the glass when this Bourgogne Blanc 2013 leaves the bottle. Singing in harmony together, aromas of white flowers and fruit trees dominate with nuanced traces of gunflint and mushroom. With aeration, citrus fruit confit, honey, butter, hazelnut and spices, deliver a warm and rich sensation. The palate is pleased by the wine’s fresh and intense balancing act. Half fermented in vintage casks, and half fermented in stainless steel tanks, gives this Chardonnay the ability to maintain its fruity essence while gaining much depth and roundness. Bourgogne Blanc 2014 is the perfect kickstarter for any party and will hold up in the cellar for six to eight years before peaking.

Force of Nature

After the small yield, but succulent flavors, of the 2012 vintage, 2013 was another year that mother earth proved its hegemony over the vignerons and vignobles of Burgundy. The bud break was relatively late, seeping into June, following a cold, rainy and frigid Spring. Throughout June, a deluge of rain delayed floraison (flowering), introducing an increased risk of blight. Pommard, as well as surrounding appellations Volnay, Beaune and Savigny-lès-Beaune, also experienced a near-fatal hailstorm, identical to the thunderous power that struck in 2012. In July and August, the weather transformed again, this time for the better. Warm temperatures and sunshine clothed the vines – with some summer downpours relinquishing the heat – guiding the grapes to ripen delightfully at the end of September. Harvest began around September 23rd, with the vineyards bare of all ripe fruit come October 2nd. The year’s unstable conditions struck again with huge storms across the region’s vineyards on October 5th and 6th. Thankfully, just a few days too late to do any more damage to the net yield. Overall, this small vintage has incredible potential. We should all be thankful.
