2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru “Hameau de Blagny”

Comtesse de Chérisey

2013 Puligny-Montrachet  <i>1er Cru</i> “Hameau de Blagny” Comtesse de Chérisey - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Vigneron Laurent Martelet says, “Le vin est la mémoire du temps”—wine holds the memory of time. His nose in a glass of 2013 Hameau de Blagny, Laurent recounts the vintage’s challenges as if looking at a picture album. A long winter brought on a late bud break. Flowering came late June after much rain. Hail threatened throughout summer. Harvest began in October—later than usual. The longer the vine exerts itself, the more interesting the wine becomes, because “suffering brings complexity,” states Laurent. This wine is as complex as they come, a strict and tightly wound witness to the trials and triumphs of a demanding year.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
