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. For those that enjoy Burgundy reds, this is a still a vintage to enjoy as the wines produced have a lovely, silky texture.

tasting note

Pommard is often considered the most “masculine” Côte de Beaune red. This is a firm, full-bodied wine that is nevertheless exceptionally round and generous, with a fruity depth of character and earthy aromas and flavors.

food pairing

Pairs well with small game, complex beef dishes, pungent cheeses.
