The 2014 whites are easy to assess. They are fantastic! These pale yellow gems were bottled in November after they showed great finesse and complexity from barrel. The layering of these young wines is impressive. The Corton-Charlemagne shows its Grand Cru pedigree, and we are very excited for our first official release of the Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru ‘Sous Fretille’ which we chose to declassify in 2013 after botrytis struck the vineyard.
The reds are also showing quite well from barrel, and most will be bottled shortly before Christmas. Three others we feel will benefit from a slightly extended élevage – the Corton Bressandes, Volnay 1er Taillepieds and Pommard 1er Grands Epenots.
