Producer note: François Mikulski described 2013 as a “highly complicated vintage to manage and not just because of the severe July hail storm as there was a difficult spring, a poor flowering, a very late harvest and threatening rot. We began picking the whites on the 28th of September and then continued onto the reds. The ripening was uneven, particularly in pinot and when you add in the hail-damaged berries that didn’t fall off after they had dried, well, you have a perfect recipe for a lot of sorting work. As to the wines, I love the whites as the quality is excellent though the reds, while perfectly nice, are clearly not at the same level.” (Becky Wasserman & Co., www.leserbet.com, Beaune, France; M.S.

Tasting note: Here too there is a very mild touch of reduction but once again the underlying fruit seems both ripe and fresh and hints at plenty of citrus character. This impression is reinforced by the lemony elements present on the relatively fine, and finely detailed, flavors that possess a lovely sense of energy and ample minerality on the saline-inflected finale that is clean, agreeably dry and beautifully long. Recommended.
