Bernard-Bonin Meursault 1er
Bernard-Bonin Meursault 1er

2015  Genevrieres

Genevrieres - Beneath a “thousand-layer” of lava is a very stony soil From two parcels: Les Genévrières–Dessus and Les Genévrières-Dessous. Both south-east facing. Grapes are hand harvested and gently pressed. The resulting wines are aged sur lie in oak barrels for 15 to 18 months with minimal (if any) bâtonnage. The wines are racked from their lees just before bottling, in synchronization with the lunar calendar, to ensure a naturally limpid and stable state, and thus avoiding fining and filtration. -- Since 1998, Domaine Bernard-Bonin has been run in impeccable fashion by Nicolas Bernard and Veronique Bonin, a daughter of the well-known Michelot family. Together, they own and cultivate 17.5 acres, including vineyards in Meursault, Meursault 1er Cru and Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru. Nicolas Bernard's approach is reflected more in his wonderful Burgundy accent than in his hip appearance. He follows time-honored winegrowing traditions, respecting the phases of the moon and employing minimal intervention in the cellar. Each wine expresses a personality derived from its terroir, its character fashioned by the climatic variances of the year. The wines are aged in oak barrels for 15-18 months, during which time each barrel is tasted individually to determine the optimum exchange between wine and sediment. The wines are racked from their lees just before bottling, in synchronization with the lunar calendar, to ensure a naturally limpid and stable state, thus avoiding fining and filtration. Once in bottle, the wines mature on the micro-sediment that develops naturally. The results carry the characteristics of the finest wines of Meursault: fresh, rich, mineral and vibrant.

Bruno Lorenzon Montagny
Bruno Lorenzon Montagny

2014  Pre Berceau

Pre Berceau - "The wines of Domaine Lorenzon make you rethink Mercurey. They convey a sense of terroir that is seldom shown so vividly in this realm of Burgundy. A third-generation winegrower of his family's estate in the old part of Mercurey (before the expansion of the AOC), Bruno Lorenzon took over the reins in 1997. In an often-overlooked region and a village that lacks any Grand Cru vineyards, 90% of his 11 acres are 1er Cru, including seven acres of the top 1er Cru vineyard, Champs Martin. All his vineyards have southern exposures and are riddled with the familiar limestone and clay of the Côte. Quite simply, Domaine Lorenzon transcends its terroir. The focused, intense Bruno produces focused, intense wines, tending to his farm as though he is manicuring a garden. Miniscule yields, organic farming and minimal intervention in the cellar are the norm here. Bruno's experience working for the Tonnellerie de Mercurey allows him to select and age his own wood, then build and toast his own barrels based on the characteristics of each cuvée and each vintage. His philosophy is that the oak, or any other component, should never stand out in the wine. The results are extremely elegant wines, with intensity and personality, light in color, yet rich with dry extract. The reds have silky tannins and bright, fresh fruit flavors mingling with savory character, while the whites have astonishing mineral length. Bruno's exacting attention to detail and excellence earned him a Winemaker of the Year Award in Burgundy from the highly respected Bourgogne Aujourd'hui."
