Varietal: Pinot Noir
La Chanière is the vineyard on the north side of the road leading from Pommard to the Hautes-Côtes, just up the canyon from the premier cru Les Arvelets. It is a cold climate terroir. In a sunny vintage like 2019 this is a very good thing - this is a wine of density, and it is very tightly coiled this year too. This wine casts aside the claim that Pommard produces muscular, unrefined wines - this is a sensual beauty with lovely concentration and balance! I was gifted a bottle of the 2005 by Claude a few years ago - it was glorious - resolved, complex and delicious - evidently still with many years left as it was brimming with fruit. Great Burgundy!
