Domaine BohrmannAll products from this vendor
Domaine Bohrmann has come a long way from the moment when Dieter Bohrmann's purchased a wine cellar, barn and 2 hectares of vineyards in Meursault in 1999. Dieter, a businessman with Belgian roots and has an attachment to Burgundy. His daughter Sofie manages the Burgundy estate. Yields are kept very low (even the small Aligote crops at less than 35 ha/hl) and the vineyards are handled with care. Since purchasing additional territory in Puligny-Montrachet, Pommard and Meursault, Domaine Borhmann now covers about 10 hectares of vineyards and work on them in a bio-dynamic way.
ChardonnayAll products from this varietal
Fresh chardonnay shows bright fruity profile and strong body. Chardonnay wines usually have expressed aromatic complexity and usually it happens due to winemaking techniques (particularly the use of oak promote notes of vanilla, smoke and hints of spices) rather than the variety's intrinsic qualities. Also, this variety can develop cream, yeast and brioche bread notes. Because of this high level of winemaker influence, Chardonnay has become famous as the "winemaker's wine".
Puligny-Montrachet is a village in the central part of Côte-de-Beaune Burgundy. The village was originally called simply Puligny, and in 1879 a portion of Montrachet was added to honor his iconic Grand Cru vineyard, Le Montrachet. Undoubtedly, the success of the Chardonnay grapes here is the result of several factors. The geographical location and the hilly nature of the vineyards, the composition of the soil and the microclimate - all this allows producers to grow high-quality grapes from which great wines are made. Many generations of winemakers have carefully studied the area, developing a detailed topographic map of the area and highlighting the places that are best suited for quality viticulture. In recent years, with the help of modern technology, extensive analysis has been carried out to continue this work and verify the exact relationship between soil and wine quality. Although difficult to determine, the positive impact of the limestone soils and the special climate of Pulinyi is undeniable. In 1984, INAO (the government body in charge of the French appeals system) formally delineated and classified the land around the village into 17 Pulliny-Montrachet vineyard plots of 1er Cru level. Wines from such sites can be labeled with their own vineyard name. However, the local wines became famous long before the official recognition of local vineyards.
