2014 World of Pinot Noir Seminar – Burgundy & Oregon: Parallels in Latitudes – a Look at 45º North, Part 2 – Burgundy
Part 2 of the 2014 WOPN seminar on Oregon and Burgundy takes us to Pinot Noir’s homeland in Burgundy, France. We were very fortunate to have Louis Jadot’s Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, present a vertical of the Premier Cru vineyard, Clos des Ursules, which included vintages: 2010, 2009, 2008, 2005, 2003, 1997, 1990, and 1985.
The Clos des Ursules is a walled site within the Vignes Franches climat, at the southern end of Beaune’s group of Premier Cru vineyards near the commune boundary with Pommard. Being on the lower eastern side of the Montagne-Saint-Desire hill, the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines here make the most of the morning and early afternoon sunshine in Burgundy’s marginal climate.
Join us as we hear from Frédéric Barnier about the Clos des Ursules climat, the various vintages he presented for tasting, and discussion of the past few “short” vintages in Burgundy.
