Our regional appellation Pinot Noir is produced from group of vine plots located between the Côte de Nuits and the Saône-et Loire-vineyards, in the hamlets of Lormes and Chavet. With a total surface area of one hectare, these vine plots are the reference point, the benchmark, for all high quality regional appellations. This Bourgogne Pinot Noir will delight you with its complexity, a result of its famous provenance. Best enjoyed young, but its constantly en route to its peak for the next ten years.
Varietal: Pinot Noir
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.
