Espérons, sans relâcher notre effort !

L’état sanitaire des raisins reste optimal, les grains touchés par la grêle sèchent et tombent  depuis l’épisode de grêle qui a touché à des degrés variables de nombreuses parcelles du domaine; le vent a séché la pluie, le soleil a fait mûrir les raisins ; le stade de la véraison est déjà atteint  sur certains coteaux même pour les pinots noirs. La végétation reste très en avance sur la moyenne, aujourd’hui voisin de 2009.

Hard work and ….faith!
Hard work and ….faith!

The general condition of the grapes is the best we could expect; since the severe hailstorm which hit in varying degrees many parts of our domain, the damaged clusters have already shrivelled and fallen, the wind has dried away the rain and the sun is maturing the grapes.

The veraison stage is well apparent in certain plots, even for Pinot Noir vines.

The vegetation is very much in advance in comparison to an average year – at the moment, almost as early as in 2009.

Waiting for the harvest...

It looks as if the 2015 vintage will be as early as 2003, 2007 and 2011 and today, the forecast leads us to expect an ideal grape harvest in the beginning of September.

 

Some news:

Our sales have developed well in France and Northern Europe (Denmark, Sweden and Finland).

Some of our stocks of red wines are low because of hail damage but we have a little Monthelie and Beaune 1er cru Grèves 2013 available.

We have reserved a limited supply of those wines which we will be promoting at the forthcoming Paris wine fair , Porte de Versailles in November.

The 2014 vintage white wines will be bottled at the end of July which will enable us to fulfil your requirements as from September (after the harvest).

We have recently been awarded several medals of distinction:

*Puligny- Montrachet 1er cru La Garenne 2013 : silver medal at the Concours Général Agricole contest, Paris 2015

*Puligny-Montrachet Les Levrons 2013, Chassagne 1er cru  Abbaye de Morgeot 2012 and Beaune Grèves 2013 : all Decanter World wine awards 2015, silver medals.

In addition, 3 of our wines have been selected for the Cave de Prestige by the BIVB (Bureau Interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) which means they will be  presented at different tasting sessions and seminars organized for wines from our region in France and other countries.

Since our qualification in 2009 for Agriculture Raisonnée cultivation standards, an audit in February confirmed our Haute Valeur Environnementale  (HVE) certification - grade 3 - the highest for environmental standards: a satisfying reward for all the work  we have put into achieving this rating.

We wish you a nice summer!

A superb grape harvest.

We have finished the 2014 vendanges and are happy with the quality and maturity of the grapes.

Espérons, sans relâcher notre effort !

L’état sanitaire des raisins reste optimal, les grains touchés par la grêle sèchent et tombent  depuis l’épisode de grêle qui a touché à des degrés variables de nombreuses parcelles du domaine; le vent a séché la pluie, le soleil a fait mûrir les raisins ; le stade de la véraison est déjà atteint  sur certains coteaux même pour les pinots noirs. La végétation reste très en avance sur la moyenne, aujourd’hui voisin de 2009.

Hard work and ….faith! | 11/07/2014
Hard work and ….faith!

The general condition of the grapes is the best we could expect; since the severe hailstorm which hit in varying degrees many parts of our domain, the damaged clusters have already shrivelled and fallen, the wind has dried away the rain and the sun is maturing the grapes.

The veraison stage is well apparent in certain plots, even for Pinot Noir vines.

The vegetation is very much in advance in comparison to an average year – at the moment, almost as early as in 2009.

It looks as if the 2014 vintage will be early and flowering is just finished, after the surprises we experienced in 2013, we are cautious about making any forecast.

As you know, we suffered severe hail damage on 23 July 2013 – Saint Brigitte’s commemoration day – which hit Beaune Grèves, Clos des Mouches and Pommard Noizons reducing our yield by 40 percent; it was the second consecutive year  for the Pommard and Clos des Mouches plots and Monthelie was also hit in 2012: the resulting deficit is hard to catch up.

On the good side, business was brisk in November and December.

The Grands jours de Bourgogne event in March saw high export sales for us  - during a crisis we had never known before, ie. a shortage of wine!

We have a little Meursault left, insofar as whites are concerned, and for red wines our stocks of 2012 vintage are becoming low added to which, stocks of the 2013 vintage are less than normal making matters not so easy.

We have however set aside  the wines necessary for the Paris wine fair taking place at the Porte de Versailles, end November 2014 and when the 2013 vintage white wines are bottled they will be on sale as from next September, after the grape harvest.

This year we have been awarded medals , worthy of mention:

*Puligny-Montrachet, Les Levrons 2012: gold medals in two contests : the Concours Général Agricole, Paris 2014 and in the Concours des Grands Vins de France, Macon 2014 (unfortunately this wine is now out of stock)

*Beaune 1er cru Grèves 2012 and Pommard Noizons 2012: silver medals in the Concours de Macon 2014.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you at our domain so please do not hesitate to call and fix an appointment or, in the meantime, request any further information required.

As at 26 April in the Côte de Beaune area, the state of the vegetation is described as between "pointe verte" (green tips) and "deux feuilles étalées" (twin leaves) meaning that this year, there has been ample time to accomplish all the necessary tasks in the field - particularly noticeable in the area.

With our greetings to you for 2013!

With our greetings to you for 2013, we also express our hopes that the grape harvest in the New Year will be rich and plentiful.

 

Since the last harvest I was unable to give you much news as I have been very occupied in updating our website and the creation of a facebook page; however, let me assure you, although the 2012 vintage yield was low for our range of wines, the quality is expected to be…. absolutely superb!

As you will see from our website, our wines have been awarded a number of honours in guides and the press.

On behalf of us all at the domain, we wish you a happy and successful New Year.

Vendanges 2012: High quality, low volume. | 04/10/2012
Vendanges 2012: High quality, low volume.

 We were able to harvest on the dry days, end September and we are very satisfied with the good condition of the grapes picked; in fact, up till now there has been a delicate aroma of raspberry in the vathouse.

 

We were able to harvest on the dry days, end September and we are very satisfied with the good condition of the grapes picked; in fact, up till now there has been a delicate aroma of raspberry in the vathouse.

The overall volume harvested was low, indeed very low for some batches and we fear it will not always be easy to please our faithfull customers for this vintage which already shows signs of holding considerable potential.

 

Getting ready for the grape harvest and forthcoming events in the Autumn. | 07/09/2012
Getting ready for the grape harvest and forthcoming events in the Autumn.

 Dear customers and wine connoisseurs,

Each vintage symbolizes the struggle between Man and Nature - and 2012 is no exception, with its unpredictable spring weather conditions; now that the fine weather has returned, everything points to  a grape harvest of good quality but the yield will be low.

The harvest is forecasted for the second half of September, 3 weeks later than last year!

The 2011 white wines are  bottled and ready for sale and now, one month later, its delicate structure can be appreciated.

Our sales have developed well in 2012 and insofar as exports are concerned, new outlets are Australia, Connecticut in the USA, UK and China.

In France, many wine specialists sell our range and the list may be found on our website which is currently being updated.

In Paris, the Guy Savoy restaurant recommends ourBeaune, red wine “Clos des Mouches”.

The Independent Winegrower’s picnic on Whit Sunday was a great success: there was a continuous flow of guests in our cellar who were able to become familiar with all aspects of the activity of our domain.

In the next months we will be participating in the following events:

. Salon des Vignerons Indépendants, Paris, Porte de Versailles 22/26 November 2012

.Salon Eurexpo, Lyon 15/17 March 2013

.Prowein, Dusseldorf, March 2013

Sommelier Wine Awards 2012 | 22/05/2012
Sommelier Wine Awards 2012

Two medals at Sommelier Wine Awards 2012



 


 

Gold Medal for Monthelie, 2010,

 

"The potential of youth impressed the judges here. Already showing great complexity of foresty, earthy notes with fine crunchy red and blackberry fruit, smoked bacon notes, good bitterness and tobacco leaves on the finish. 'The use of oak is noticeable but fairly balanced', said Xavier Rousset, Texture, while Min Jiang's Felicity Hall enjoyed the 'perfumed violets on the nose, good balance and smooth finish. I'd suggest guinea fowl."

 

Silver Medal for Meursault Les Tillets, 2010,

 

"Another felt to be a touch young, with perhaps its best years ahead, this elegantly spicy wine still proved popular. 'Pleasant, biting palate and clean, steel-like finish', said Sarah Guignard of The French Table. 'Elegant, classic, if a bit pricey', said consultant Angela Reddin."

The end of winter work in the field. | 13/04/2012
The end of winter work in the field.

Following a dry, hard winter, temperatures recorded in March were above normal, as high as 21 to 23°C.

 

 

 

It was a race against time to ensure that winter work in the vineyards was completed in order to avoid the risk of damaging buds when tying the canes.

 

As at 12 April, growth in some plots appears to be as early as it was for the 2011 vintage; however, the present cold and unstable weather conditions may slow down progression.

Récolte 2011 | 05/10/2011
Récolte 2011

Inquiétude en juillet-août...soulagement en septembre!

Le printemps exceptionnellement chaud et sec laissait présager un millésime précoce et peut-être peu abondant suite au stress hydrique qui commençait à se manifester dans le vignoble.

De fait, la floraison était terminée partout dès le 20 mai et la sécheresse se confirmait.

L'été n'a par contre pas été au rendez-vous: un mois de juillet frais et très pluvieux a permis au raisin de retrouver un volume normal, mais aussi au botrytis de s'installer en août sur Pinot Noir malgré le retour marqué de la chaleur.

La détermination de la date de récolte a une fois de plus été délicate, devant respecter notre volonté de récolter un raisin de maturité optimale, mais également en très bon état sanitaire.

Au vu de ces critères pas toujours concordants, nous avons débuté les vendanges le 28 août, d'abord sur les rouges de Beaune, plus précoces, pour finir par les blancs et les Hautes Côtes de Beaune.

Les très bonnes conditions météorologiques de toute cette période nous ont permis de récolter sereinement de beaux raisins.

Une première dégustation en fin de vinification nous permet d'entrevoir des rouges d'une belle robe profonde, fruités et aux tanins soyeux. Les raisins blancs de très bel état sanitaire promettent des vins distingués, riches et aromatiques.

les craintes de l'été sont maintenant dissipées; un beau millésime s'annonce!

Herewith, 3 important news items concerning our domain:
Vinexpo, to Harvest in August, Salon des Vignerons Indépendants in Paris

 
Vinexpo:
 
Following our participation at this wine fair, we had a number of promising contacts for extending our sales to other regions in France (eg. Granville in Normandy) and other countries, such as the UK (where we have had only little exposure); we are confident that this trend will continue in S.E Asia when we will be going to Hong Kong, Beijing, Shangai and Hangzhou on visits organized by the Burgundy chamber of commerce (CCIR) in November.
 
 
To harvest in August... that is the question!:
 
The precocious vegetation growth in Spring has now been slowed down by the present period of cold weather; berries are not fully developed yet and at this moment in time, there are doubts regarding harvesting in August as first anticipated...
 
 
Salon des Vignerons Indépendants in Paris:
 
We are pleased to announce that our application to take part in this independent winegrowers fair at the Porte de Versailles in Paris, end November, has been accepted; we hope to welcome you there from 24 to 28 November 2011.

Spring 2011: the years roll on but they are never the same! | 20/04/2011
Spring 2011: the years roll on but they are never the same!

Following a relatively mild winter and spring-like conditions around mid-March, the vines suddenly started to show first signs of growth which steadily developed thereon.

 


In the more favourable areas, buds began to swell as from 20 March and the first green points appeared early April which meant we had to hurry and finish tying back the last branches to avoid damaging the new growth.
 
As for 2007, we started debudding as from 18 April signifyinyg that at this stage we are 15 days in advance by comparison to 2010.
 
There is no risk through lack of rainfall at the moment because the vine roots are very deep; furthermore the present conditions are a barrier against crytogamic diseases meaning less spraying; however in other sectors of agriculture there are serious concerns of drought...

Some notable wine-tasting events

Our wines were presented at a recent food and wine event ("accord mets et vins") organized by the Wine and Business Club in the Paris, Hotel Bristol 3-star restaurant (Eric Fréchon). The evening was a great success and we had a very good write-up in the February 2011 edition of the "Action Commerciale" magazine.

 

On 8 April, Philippe Faure Brac will give a presentation on our wines in his Paris restaurant "Le Bistrot du Sommelier".

On 16, 17 and 18 Arpil we will take part in a wine fair organized by the Rotary Club (Antibes-Azur-Riviera) in the Fort Carré, Antibes...

Regarding the Fédération des Vignerons Indépendants de France wine fair, we will have to wait a little longer but we are still on the waiting list...

In the vineyard, conditions at the beginning of Winter were hard but work has resumed normally; pruning is now completed and at the moment all the trellising is being reconditioned. 

Vendanges 2010..... ..... and a year on the alert, ready to act! | 22/11/2010
Vendanges 2010..... ..... and a year on the alert, ready to act!

Poor weather conditions in Spring with a serious abortive effect at the flowering stage suggested a low yield and an average development rate across all the plots.

 

 

It was necessary to thoroughly spray - somewhat late - because of the frequent Summer rain in order to protect the vegetation and the condition of the grapes; this action combined with thinning of the leaves around the grape clusters and reduction of lateral growth improved the level of maturity in the domain.

Monitoring of the situation first indicated a harvesting date as from 23 September, then from 20 September as the vines seemed to have reached maturity but, following a stormy period on 12 September, it appeared that harvesting of some Chardonnay plots could start on Saturday 18 September as we were able to rely on the availability of our faithful local pickers.

By 20 September all our team were at work for a dry and sunny period.

Although the yield was not very high, the sanitary condition of the grapes was good and maturity consistent.

Come and take a glass and we will be able to judge the results within the coming weeks...!

Début des travaux en vert. | 05/05/2010
Début des travaux en vert.

Suite à un hiver très rigoureux, la vigne a démarré sa période végétative avec un peu de retard.

 

Le débourrement s'est étalé, selon les situations et les cépages, entre le 15 et le 27 avril. Une température quasi estivale fin avril a provoqué une explosion spectaculaire de la végétation, si bien que, en ce début de mai, certaines parcelles précoces présentent déjà 5 à 6 feuilles étalées. Une brusque chute des températures à partir du 2 mai nous incite à la prudence et nous rappelle que la période des "saints de glace" les 11, 12 et 13 mai n'est pas encore passée. Nous démarrons actuellement l'ébourgeonnage des parcelles les plus précoces.

Pommard Noizons 2007 vintage: a gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole 2010 Paris competition.

More medals for Domaine Berthelemot! After receiving a first gold medal at the CGA Paris competition last year for its 2007 vintage white Beaune Longbois, two further -truly worthy- awards were received this year for 2 red wines, both 2007 vintage:

Pommard Noizons

Monthelie

For the gold medal Pommard Noizons 2007 the judge's flattering citation was: "a bouquet of fresh ripe fruit supple and well balanced tannins".

The Monthelie 2007 red wine was awarded a bronze medal and more than honourably cemmended as "rich red in colour, slight woody tones giving finenesse, well structured and fresh".

Certification "Agriculture raisonnée" | 15/12/2009
Certification

After a successful audit last september, the domain has been awarded the official certification for "Agriculture raisonnée".

This certification, for which less than 10 winegrowers have been approved in Côte d'Or, guarantees that the methods used by Domaine Berthelemot are environmentally friendly (less products used for spraying) and hygienically safe (complete traceability system).

Next year, we will use several newly developped ecological molecules and products, lower in toxicity and with longer term action meaning that spraying in Spring can be reduced.

The use of herbicides will also be reduced in 2010 by the purchase of a tractor well equipped for efficient ploughing and hoeing; parts of our surface area are in grass where herbicides are not necessary; progressiveley the aim is to avoid the use of any chemical treatment of the ground depending on the reaction of the vine.

Harvesting this year could hardly have been better! | 25/09/2009
Harvesting this year could hardly have been better!
By 18th of September, grape picking was completed in exceptional conditions both from a weather and sanitary point of view.

All started on 10th September when the grapes were well ripened, meaning that very littlle sorting was necessary.

For the whites, the alcoholic fermentation has started in cask after a little racking of the must; for the reds, partially destalked, a fermentation check on screen showed a smooth, promising progress following a few days of cold maceration.

Everything looks good for our wines - worthy of this excellent year, which 2009 is forecasted to be!

Harvest planned for the 10th of september! | 04/09/2009
Harvest planned for the 10th of september!
In these first days of september, the grapes are healthy and nearly ripe!

On the most sunny slopes, the grapes still hold tight to the stems and the skins are thick and shiny; after analysis in each parcel and discussions with meteorologists we made the choice to wait until the 10th of september to start harvesting.

Our team was waiting for that decision to start: former harvesters from Jean Garaudet and from our 2007 and 2008 team prepare to face the hard work in good spirits; sorting out the rotten grapes may be easier than last year!

But, as long as the last vat is not completed, no one knows what the weather will be! Let us not hurry too much to announce a great vintage even if, today, the potential is there.

Approaching harvest | 21/08/2009
Approaching harvest
With the end of august approaching it is time to prepare for the grape harvest.

The recent heat wave has accelerated maturity of the grapes ; the process is completed in the Côte de Beaune and progressing well in the Hautes Côtes; so far, the condition of the grapes is excellent and the first checks on maturity, at equivalent dates, would suggest a standard close to 1997.

For the red wines, the malolactic fermentation is finished so they will continue to refine over the next few months; the white wines were bottled on 20th. August ;with an aroma of fresh yellow fruit and good acidity and structure, it is expected they will be able to age well.

 

2009 in advance, similar to 2007 ... | 10/06/2009
2009 in advance, similar to 2007 ...

Vegetation growth was speeded up by good overall weather conditions in May making it necessary to quickly complete debudding and tying up in order to protect the younger, more fragile, branches.

 

Flowering started towards the end of the month in the more advanced lots of Chardonnay (Beaune Clos des Mouches) and early June for Pinot Noir; in spite of a period of rain and lower temperatures, the setting of the vine should progress well. At this key period in time, the advance gained this year makes it the second year in advance (after 2007) over the last 15 years, suggesting that harvesting could be very early in September. There have been signs of the first generation Cochylis and Eudemis, somewhat more than for previous vintages, but from counts made in accordance with new rational cultivation techniques it appeared that no action was necessary.

The season has begun in the vineyards | 11/05/2009
The season has begun in the vineyards
The warm and sunny conditions at the end of April have stimulated growth of the vine.

 

Bud bursting took place around 6 April for the earlier variety of Chardonnay vines, roughly between the development noticed in 2007 and 2008; this is largely due to the fact that in April cold and wet periods alternated with almost summer-like conditions. In the Beaune Grèves sector, debudding work to control the future grape crop output to a reasonable level, started on 23 April. In accordance with the new regulations for agriculture we started on 7 May to spray against mildew and on part of the domain, against oidium. At the time of writing the growth rate is halfway between the rates registered in the 2 preceding years. In the coolness of the cellar, the malolactic fermentation is progressing for the 2008 vintage.

Brigitte Berthelemot takes over
On Friday 3rd April, after 2 years of hard work, Domaine Berthelemot opened its new wine tasting cellar in Meursault; many officials and journalists assisted at the inauguration.

 

At 4pm Marc Cugney, domain manager, gave a guided tour of the cellar and equipment in Tailly after which at 5 pm the new wine tasting cellar located Rue des Forges in Meursault was inaugurated; at the reception, guests were able to taste the 2007 vintage - and appreciate all the charm of the premises. In her speech, Brigitte Berthelemot stressed that her domain "respected tradition in its working methods particularly regarding the quality of the grapes, constant monitoring of output from pruning stage, right harvesting dates, hand picking, careful sorting during picking and then on the sorting belt...".                                                                    Brigitte Berthelemot thanked Yves Darviot and Jean Garaudet - and their wives - for all their help and support and also others, including friends, suppliers, grape pickers not forgetting her husband and respective families; before inviting her guests to taste the first vintage produced by her domain, she concluded by saying: "we must remain modest when facing nature but our aim is to honour the challenge and succeed".

Domaine Berthelemot opens its doors
The domain was founded 2 years ago and its first vintage bottled last September. To celebrate the event, Domaine Berthelemot organized a reception in honour of this 2007 vintage.

 

For several months the domain staff had worked on how to introduce the domain and its wine and with whom. The official opening was on 3rd April 2009 in the presence of many guests. At 4pm, officials and journalists were given a guided tour by domain manager Marc Cugney of the cellar and equipment in the Tailly location; visitors were able to appreciate the latest technology installed, comprising thermo-regulated vats, pneumatic press and ecological solar power and waste disposal systems coforming to new regulations. Afterwards at 5pm, the entirely renovated winestasting cellar in Meursault was inaugurated by Brigitte Berthelemot and guests. The reception took place in the charming house of the Rue des Forges in Meursault during which all the 2007 vintage could be tasted.

Competing in the Concours General Agricole | 03/04/2009

For the first time that the domain took part in the Concours general Agricole competition at this year's agricultural fair in Paris it won its first time ever medal!                                                             

The jury awarded a gold medal for Domaine Berthelemot's 2007 Beaune Longbois: this is a white chardonnay, mineral and characteristic of the shallow and stony soil where it is harvested; it is a tight wine with citrus tones (grapefruit, lemon...) and ideal for serving with seafoods.
Spring | 01/04/2009
Spring

Better weather means another stage in the work in the vineyard while in the cellar, the wine is developing in cask.

 

After a long and cold winter making work very hard, this Spring was long awaited. Pruning is now finished, vine plants replaced where necessary and springtime ploughing completed. Stakes and wires have been maintained and cane tying work is progressing well. We will soon be ready for the new season. For the 2008 vintage, the malolactic fermentation is underway which will give the wine its suppleness (the malic acid content is relatively high) and from recent tasting the end result looks promising; this will be carefully monitored over the coming months in order to ensure perfect vinification.
La Revue des Vins de France - Juin 2013 | 27/05/2013

La Revue des Vins de France du mois de Juin 2013 cite le Monthelie rouge 2012 du Domaine Berthelemot parmi les "réussites" !
