Winemaker Notes

Pale Gold. Lots of pineapple and ripe grapefruit on the nose. Very ripe. Classy! Even with such maturity, still seems tightly wound. Soft, creamy, and exotic on the palate and with excellent potential.

Critical Acclaim

BH 91
Burghound.com
This was sufficiently reduced to be difficult to read aromatically. Otherwise though there is good vibrancy to the detailed, intense and overtly mineral-driven flavors that possess a beautifully textured mouth feel that continues onto the lemony and balanced but not especially dry finale.

Domaine Pinson Freres Winery Image

For more than 350 years, the Pinson family has produced wine. Laurent and Christophe Pinson, worthy successors of their grandfather Louis, continue the family tradition, which began in 1640, date of the first official documents preserved by the family. In 1940, Louis Pinson and his wife were one of the first wine growers in Chablis to bottle and sell their wines direct to the public. At that time, the domaine had a surface of approximately three hectares, and reached five hectares in 1982.

Following Viticulture-Oenology studies in the renowned wine college of Beaune, the two grandsons arrived, Laurent in 1983 and Christophe in 1987. Their objective was to improve the already excellent wines of the domaine. Today the vineyard has grown to 11 hectares (50 acres) in various appellations such as world renowned Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Chablis 1er Crus Montmain, La Forêt, Vaillons,Vaugiraut, and AOC Chablis. ?

Of course, the quality of the raw material is of primary importance, and the Pinsons work hard in the vineyard throughout the season. From pruning the vine to the all important grape harvest, all the vineyard work is carried out with the greatest of care, so thatChardonnay gives the maximum of its potential.

The main characteristic of the Pinson wines is intensity and concentration. Often accused of being old fashioned, this estate is now producing some of the most exciting wines of the appellation. The Pinson brothers strictly adhere to tradition. They use small oak casks but no new oak, thus maintaining the mineral freshness of great Chablis without altering the traditional flavors, at the same time taking advantage of the added complexity that comes with the practice of oak aging.

A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide, Burgundy is a perennial favorite of many wine lovers. While the concept of ‘terroir’ reigns supreme here—soil type, elevation and angle of each slope—this is a region firmly rooted in tradition. Because of the Napoleonic Code requiring equal distribution of property and land among all heirs, vineyard ownership in Burgundy is extremely fragmented, with some growers responsible for just one or two rows of vines. This system has led to the predominance of the "negociant"—a merchant who purchases fruit from many different growers to vinify and bottle together.

Burgundy’s cool, continental climate and Jurassic limestone soils are perfect for the production of elegant, savory and mineral-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with plenty of acidity. Vintage variation is of particular importance here, as weather conditions can be variable and unpredictable. In some years spring frost and hail must be overcome.

The Côte d’Or, a long and narrow escarpment, forms the heart of the region, split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. The former is home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, while Chardonnay plays a much more prominent role in the latter, though outstanding red and white are produced throughout. Other key appellations include the Côte Chalonnaise, home to great value Pinot Noir and sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. The Mâconnais produces soft and round, value-driven Chardonnay while Chablis, the northernmost region of Burgundy, is a paradise for any lover of bright, acid-driven and often age-worthy versions of the grape.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
