2010 Bourgogne Blanc, Patrice et Michèle Rion

Bourgogne Blanc, Patrice et Michele Rion
From two sources in the Côte de Beaune, displaying an exuberant orange blossom nose, with some fresh pineapple notes. Really delicious fresh fruit on the palate, a perfect picnic wine.
Jasper Morris MW, Burgundy Director

We have decided to combine here the wines that fall under the domaine label and those produced officially as négociant wines and labelled as Patrice Rion. Most of these cuvées are from vines managed by Patrice who has one contract to farm the vineyards and another to buy the grapes. The exceptions are the village Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-St Georges Vieilles Vignes where Patrice is not involved in the farming.

Patrice and son Maxime are tweaking their techniques a little by reducing new oak and slightly increasing extraction in the pre-fermentation stage. These are impressive results – the Nuits-St Georges continues the consistently fine streak of recent years while this is certainly the finest range of Chambolle-Musigny that they have ever produced. 2010 reminds Patrice a little of 1978 and 1991, two vintages with small yields, full ripeness and notable concentration.
