Behind the bottle

2019 Domaine Thomson Bourgogne Rouge
Pinot Noir from the small parcel (0.3ha) in the Mellecey vineyard in the Côte Chalonnaise. Medium to full-bodied, layered and complete. The Domaine Thomson Bourgogne Rouge is elegantly powerful, with lively acids, powdery tannins and a long, perfumed finish.

Vintage Report
The 2019 vintage in Burgundy will be remembered for its intense fruit, firm structure and supple texture with wines that are rich but show remarkable balance despite the heat.
Low yields and the heat combined to concentrate both acidity and sugar in the grapes, allowing both reds and whites to maintain a very fine balance of richness and structure.

The 2019 wines from Burgundy have received plaudits from across the trade and while demand is expected to be high, there isn’t much to go round. Read The Drinks Business article HERE

Mellecey, les Entrevaux by PM
The village of Mellecey lies to the south east of Mercurey, which is one of the best known red wine villages in the Côte Châlonnaise. The Côte Châlonnaise starts where the Côte de Beaune comes to an end, however, it is in a different département of Burgundy, which is the Saône-et-Loire.
In terms of getting there, it is some distance from Gevrey-Chambertin, but the drive as ever, is very beautiful, assuming one avoids the autoroute. The road winds through historic villages and well known vineyards. Perhaps it is my imagination but I have the impression that the Soane-et-Loire is a rolling green country, the green fields are flecked with white Charolais cattle, and fringed with old oaks. This is the land of plenty, with a rich opulent cuisine, such as Bresse chicken cooked in cream and served with pancakes, which is marvellous, cooked in cream and accompanied by Pinot Noir. There is also the famous fish stew called Pochouse, made from fresh water white fish cooked in Pinot Noir.

The vines in Mellecey lie to the south of the village. They can be seen from our other vines in Mercurey. The lieu-dit is les Entrevaux. The vines are planted in the direction of north-west to south-east and are oriented in the direction of south-east, with good sun. Wine from this parcel is blended into the Bourgogne Rouge wine made by Armand.
