Serious Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-St-Georges from some interesting vineyards
The Domaine Michele and Patrice Rion was born in 2000 when Patrice decided to leave the family estate Domaine Daniel Rion. He took with him parcels of Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Charmes and Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Argillieres and built a cuveries and cellar on his own property. Since then the domaine has expanded with including the addition of the monopole Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Clos St Marc which had previously been bottled by Bouchard.
Patrice farms organically and is trialling biodynamic viticulture. Patrice is convinced that great wine is created in the vineyard. Grapes are sorted on two tables de tri and are 100% destemmed. Temperatures are kept cool through the winemaking process to retain the aromatics. The Premier Crus typically see 50% new oak.
We have received pricing for the 2012 vintage and I am pleased to say the wines of Domaine Patrice Rion are still well priced. They have been well reviewed by Burghound and you will find his tasting notes on our website.
Once again we remind you of the small production in 2012 and urge you not to wait too long.
