cedric bouchard, roses de jeanne les ursules blanc de noirs 2013
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Cédric Bouchard's 2013 Blanc de Noirs "Les Ursules" is pure Pinot "Noir from a north-facing 0.97-hectare vineyard planted on clay limestone in 1974. The 2013 is concentrated on the nose, with lots of quinces and red fruits. On the palate, this is a mouth-filling, generously rich and concentrated yet fine and elegant Les Ursules with lots of energy and persistent mineral tension. The finish is very long and intense yet delicate, with no aggression at all. The acidity lifts the ripeness in a fascinating way here. There is great finesse and purity here but also fruitiness and endless salinity! Just beautiful! Tasted at the domaine in April 2018. Total production: 2,800 bottles plus 400 magnums.
