Domaine Brigitte Berthelemot Pommard 1er Cru Les Arvelets 2015 (3761)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Beaune - Pommard
Pinot Noir

Domaine Brigitte Berthelemot have been on a fast growth path. In the last five years they have expanded their holdings with some significant new 1er Crus is the Cote de Beaune.

The latest purchase was a 0.31 hectare parcel of the Pommard 1er Cru Les Arvelets. Les Arvelets is a steep vineyard located high on the slope at around 280 metres above sea level. The soil is red with many small stones.

The first vintage of Les Arvelets for Domaine Berthelemot will be 2015. It will also be the last for some years as the old vines (planted in 1953 and 1961) proved to be not particularly productive and the domaine has decided that long term it would be better off replanting.

Two barrels produced. One and two year old oak. Purple-red hue. Violets, raspberries, crunchy cherries. A little graphite. The palate displays all the fruits on the nose with a creamy texture no doubt from the old vines. There is a mid palate that combines a complex raspberry and violet sorbet with the cream and a real aromatic lift. Textured. Underneath there is some crushed stone. More Volnay than Pommard. And delicious. 100% whole bunch, complex, aromatic. The tannins fine and hidden beneath the fruit complexity. If you have a picture of Pommard based on wines of yesteryear you will be surprised. This is elegant Pommard personified. It's a one-off as the domaine will grub up the vines as the yields were ridiculously low.
