harvest note

2013 was a challenging season. It began with very wet and cold conditions in the region delaying flowering. This led to a disruption in quantity of the grapes, as millerandage affected the bunches. Summer ended with warm weather and fine growing conditions. Unfortunately, due to inconsistent ripening, the harvest was drawn out for an extended period of time. This was challenging for pickers as the weather turned cold quickly. Luckily, Côte de Beaune was able to produce small but high quality whites.

tasting note

A deeply colored, full-bodied wine of depth and intensity with a persistent, earthy finish.

food pairing

An excellent companion to fish, shellfish, poultry and cheeses.
