The opinion of the sommelier

Burgundy’s red wines arefascinating : they all are elaborated with the same grape variety and yet they offer an astonishing diversity. This is due to the unique diversity of terroirs in the region. This Hautes Côtes de Beaune displays beautiful aromas of raspberry and rose delicately enhanced by a gentle acidity and very thin tannins. However, pinot noir is a fragile and demanding variety : do not hesitate to aerate it several hours before service so it fully displays its bouquet. 



Long strip bordering Côte de Beaune’s villages on the west, Hautes Côtes de Beaune are a succession of hills and valleys. Thus, vines are all planted on slopes which allow them to benefit from a good exposure to sun and wind. It ensures a good level of ripeness, which is very important in such a northern region, and keeps the wine healthy, also very important for pinot noir, a noticeably fragile grape variety.

lecepage Grape variety

In Burgundy, all the great white wines come from chardonnay and all the red from pinot noir. But if chardonnay is robust and can be planted virtually everywhere, pinot noir is different. Indeed, pinot needs sun to develop its aromas but not too much heat. Moreover, it needs wind to remain healthy. Therefore, pinot enjoys sloppy northern region, like Burgundy and Champagne where it is widely grown !

lemillesime Vintage

2012 in Burgundy was hard on the grapes, but not on the wines ! Indeed, a high level of humidity during spring gave the grapes the water it needs but helped diseases to spread. A part of the harvest was lost. Then, during summer, hail destroyed more of the harvest. Fortunately, August was mainly sunny and the berries ripened. Eventually, the remaining grapes were as good as they were rare. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

In Burgundy, most estates go from one generation to another. But not all the time ! Indeed, Hervé Kerlann comes from a Family of… Bordeaux’s wine merchants ! However, it’s in Beaune that Hervé chose to keep on developing the Family’s business, notably buying Château de Laborde in 1998 from Hospices de Beaune.
