Vintage Description

This 2012 vintage has given a headache to Burgundy winemakers! Spring frost, high disease pressure, hailstorms in Cote de Beaune (Volnay and Pommard especially), nothing has been spared. First consequence, plummeting volumes (sometimes up to 60%), which is even more serious than the returns of 2010 and 2011 had been well below average. The advantage of this type of vintage is that the grapes that ""resist"" generally have thick skins that allow slow maturity and depth and report skin / juice that achieves beautiful concentrations of winemaking. The rare red are often concentrated wines and a nice taut and fresh balance. The whites are in the same register. Overall, the Cote de Nuits is doing better than the Cote de Beaune, where hail have left traces¿ In the latter, the appellation Beaune places itself above the rest with wines generally well balanced, crunchy fruity. Red, Volnay and Pommard have suffered a little while appellations of white Puligny and Chassagne are especially good level, a cut above for once Meursault. In Cote de Nuits appellations most are of a good standard, Gevrey Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-Saint-Georges showing slightly higher.
