88 Points - Allen Meadows’ - “Producer note: Régis Forey describes the 2013 vintage as a "challenging vintage but not the worst that I have ever seen. When you've been doing this as long as I have you just learn to deal with what's dealt and make the best of it. I began picking on the 26th of September and while there was some sorting necessary I would put the losses at between 5 and 8%, which isn't really all that much more than a normal vintage. Ripeness levels were good and potential alcohols came in between 11.5 and 12% which is correct if not high. Yields were also correct though lower than usual at between -15 to -20% that translates to around 30 hl/ha when considered across all of my appellations. I destemmed the fruit and then added back selected stems based on ripeness and cleanliness. This is to say that I used about 15% stems in the lower level wines and progressively added more before capping out at around 80% for the Clos de Vougeot. As to the wines, I think that 2013 is a really good vintage as the fruit is pure and the wines definitely reflect their respective terroirs. I like the style of the vintage as it will be more approachable young than say 2010 but age almost as well." Forey noted that his 2012s, revisited below, were bottled between January and March 2014. And speaking of the Forey '12s, a number of them are genuine knock-outs and highly recommended. Tasting note: Here too there is a trace of wood framing the very fresh and ripe red berry fruit and soft earth aromas. There is equally good freshness and ripeness to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess good length on the notably firm and mildly rustic finish.”
