Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
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 Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates

Côte de Nuits

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

Chambolle-Musigny is one of the smallest appellations of the Côte de Nuits, although given the tiny, fragmented nature of Burgundy vineyards, it manages to fit two exceptional Grand Crus (Bonnes Mares and Le Musigny) and a couple of dozen Premieres Crus. These wines are known for delicacy and tend to be light in body, but concentrated and with fragrent bouquets. The critic Robert M. Parker Jr. quotes French poet Gaston Roupnel as likening the region's wines to "silk and lace."
Di Giancarlo marino: comunque. Les Noirottes è un cru situato quasi al centro di Chambolle, subito ad est di Bonnes Mares, ed è confinante tra gli altri con i 1er cru Les Baudes (segnalo quello di H. Lignier), Les Sentieres (segnalo quello di R. Groffier), e aux Beaux Bruns (molto citato dalla stampa quello di D. Mortet, io preferisco quello di Ghislaine Barthod). Pur essendo ben situato, questo 1er cru non mi risulta aver mai dato vini di particolare pregio. Per chi ama e cerca lo "spirito" vero di Chambolle, oltre allo scontato Les Amoureuses (notevoli quelli di De Vogue, Roumier, Groffier, Amiot-Servelle...) ed a quelli già citati, consiglio Les Cras di G. Roumier e Ghislaine Barthod, Derrier la Grange di Amiot-Servelle, Haut Doix di Groffier. Volendo scegliere tra i Village, sono tutti buoni quelli di Groffier, Ghislaine Barthod e Roumier, produttori che eccellono regolarmente anche nelle denominazioni minori. Volendo parlare di Chambolle, occorrerà prima o poi dire qualcosa anche dei grand cru: la mia passione per i Bonnes Mares è nota ai miei amichetti sciagattati.
