2013 Domaine Parent Pommard 1er Cru "Les Chanlins"

SKU #1242449 89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is earthier still though the floral top notes add a touch of elegance to the leather and game-inflected red berry fruit aromas. There is really lovely detail and a fine bead of minerality present on the medium-bodied flavors that possess good volume if less muscularity than usual while exhibiting fine length on the balanced, persistent and solidly complex finish. This is very Chanlins in character if perhaps a bit less youthfully austere than is typical.  (4/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 From 16-year-old vines planted on more limestone soils, the 2013 Pommard 1er Cru les Chanlans has a clean, linear, floral bouquet: rose petals, lavender infusing the red cherries and raspberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, a gentle grip with a touch of spice on the mulberry and blackcurrant finish. A little reserved, it will probably need a couple of years in barrel.

Bold, almost sappy red fruits. Quite big and brash by Burgundian standards. Lots of concentration, spice, richness. Dense and round on the palate. Admirable weight and power for the vintage.

My favorite wine of our tasting with Anne, this Pommard was loaded with lovely perfume… This is the type of wine that you don’t want to move on from, but rather keep drinking! It comes from the Volnay side of Pommard from 15 year old vines and sees about 30% new oak. I could not get enough of the delicate, savory cherry fruit and ethereal minerality. This is one of those rare wines that integrates primary fruit flavors with clean earth seamlessly… It was definitely my style of Burgundy!
Drink from 2016 to 2028

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
