Bruno Lorenzon 2022

Domaine Bruno Lorenzon 2022

The wines of the Maestro of Mercurey are now available for the 2022 vintage. This latest release from superstar Bruno Lorenzon feature wines of sublime purity, often from high density plantings. These all-organic wines are not labelled as such anymore as he finds the label too restrictive and the vineyards have not seen chemicals for 50 years. Of course they still are grown with his meticulous precision in the vineyards. The prices keep moving up but still represent value compared to his peers in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. Buyers of previous vintages are sitting on tidy profits as the secondary market has more than doubled his initial release prices.

2022 Domaine Bruno Lorenzon

A pioneer of sustainable farming in a region dominated by chemical agriculture and mechanized harvesting, Bruno Lorenzon has been leading the way in the Côte Chalonnaise for two decades. Lorenzon’s vines are trained higher than his neighbours’ and often planted at higher densities, and until 2020, he was certified organic. “But I’ve chosen to quit the certification system,” he explains, “because I’m not convinced by the label anymore”. His vineyards, needless to say, continue to represent a model for the rest of the Côte Chalonnaise to aspire to, with living soils and open canopies. What’s more, yields are routinely a mere fraction of his neighbours. To do all this in Vosne-Romanée or Puligny-Montrachet would be one thing; to do it in Mercurey means personal sacrifices and skipped vacations. Happily, Bruno Lorenzon is well on the way to receiving the international recognition that he deserves.

“I am convinced that there are very few estates in the Côte d’Or operating on Lorenzon’s level today…..this only confirms my view that this is one of the best addresses in contemporary Burgundy.” – William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

The Côte Chalonnaise has long been the victim to a vicious cycle: the wines’ modest reputation leading to low prices, and low prices incentivizing producers to choose quantity over quality. But over the last two decades, Bruno Lorenzon’s exceptional wines have expanded the parameters of the possible in this region, shattering glass ceilings and challenging preconceptions. Concentrated but precise, they’re seamless and complete, competing with the Côte d’Or’s best on their own terms, and they frequently win blind tastings when prejudices about Mercury are put to one side. Of course, results such as these don’t happen by accident: attention is paid to every detail to safeguard the wines’ finesse and precision. Fruit is picked into small trays and kept cool before processing, and Lorenzon even produces his own barrels for his wines’ élevage, seasoning the wood and managing the toasting himself. And he isn’t content to rest on his laurels: today, in addition to his compelling reds and whites from Mercurey, Lorenzon has taken over several parcels in Montagny, another appellation badly needing valorization. In a region sometimes paralyzed by entrenched hierarchies, Lorenzon’s dynamic presence is immensely important.

As the wines of the Côte d’Or’s most glamorous communes command seemingly ever-higher prices, there has never been a timelier moment to explore the Côte Chalonnaise and the less famous villages of the Côte de Beaune. These must be the best value quality wines available in Burgundy!

Please note that whilst there are no Grand Cru in Mercurey, Pièce 15 & Pièce 13 are the equivalent, so balanced orders will be looked upon more favourably than orders just for these wines!

Whilst we await the 2022s to be scored, I have added the previous three vintage scores (where available) from William Kelley in The Wine Advocate.

Please let me know your requirements.
