Overall, 2013 was a classic vintage, 'very Burgundian' in the sense that they harvested late, with 75% of the grapes picked in October. Except for an incidence of hail which affected the Côte de Beaune, there was no variation in quality between the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. The small production was due to climatic influences including coulure and millerandage, but also hail. Virtually no areas were spared in this respect. Therefore, yields were very small. The whites are a pure, fine, crafted style, with delicious acidity and great length on the palate. This is a vintage with a pronounced citrus and clean aromatic character.
David Moret Puligny-Montrachet has a pale golden hue in the glass. With zesty citrus aromas, this Chardonnay is generous on the palate with spicy undertones and a lingering finish. Delicious and complex, it is difficult to find a white wine quite like it outside of Burgundy.
