Bourgogne Cote d'Or Blanc Duroche 2019 (750ML)
William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 vintage—which began on September 9 at this address—is another terrific success for Pierre Duroché. Volumes are down, with yields averaging around 30 hectoliters per hectare, but quality continues to climb: Supple, dynamic and concentrated, all these 2019s come warmly recommended, but sadly they're increasingly carefully allocated. What's more, the 2018s, revisited from bottle, confirmed all the promise they showed last year. But what has changed since last year? In the vineyards, Duroché is experimenting with "tressage," rolling vines' canopies instead of trimming them—and to that end, he's pragmatically raising stakes and trellising wires so he has the option to hedge in a rainy, disease-prone vintage but can also opt not to in sunny, warm years. In the cellar, new oak continues to make a minimal contribution, but the historic emphasis on Tonnellerie Cadus has diminished, to avoid any one cooper defining the domaine style. Vinifictions continue to be rather delicate, with comparatively short macerations and little in the way of pigeage." 1/21
