Bourgogne
Pinot Noir

A Top Quality Regional

Across the Côte de Beaune, clay-rich soils are the perfect terroir for Pinot Noir. Located in the plain that faces the Clos Marey-Monge, our plot “Les Lormes” complex Pommard soils are a great match to the region’s native red grape. Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a balanced and silky wine that expresses the essence of Burgundy’s iconic grape variety.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013

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.

The pure expression of Pinot Noir

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017 is a young red wine with a pale ruby color. It shows medium intensity aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, peonies and sweet spices like cinnamon, present both on the nose and palate. Fruity and well-balanced, with medium acidity and low tannins, it is a pure expression of Pinot Noir.

A generous year

2017 began the best possible way, with a sunny and warm spring and no threats of hail or frost. Bud break happened at the beginning of April, soon followed by blooming. Summer was marked by scorching episodes, pushing maturation forward. Harvest started over the last days of August, two weeks earlier than usual, and lasted until mid-September. With healthy, ripe grapes and yields back to normal, 2017 has since proven its high-quality and long-lasting potential.
