Domaine Michele et Patrice Rion “Les Terres Blanches” 2013, Chardonnay, Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru, Burgundy, France


Picked in time, before the rain, this has a pale straw colour with a clear crisp nose. There is lovely weight to this with a mineral clarity which is exciting. Lovely fresh pear notes, very fine.

Despite this being a very late season, Patrice compares 2013 to the fruit of early vintages such as 2007 and 2011, but with more stuffing. It also reminds him of 1980, a particularly successful vintage chez Rion. The 2013 crop is a small one though, a touch more than 2012 but less than 2011. They employed two sorting tables, and since the grapes which reached the vats were all healthy, they used less sulphur during vinification.
