Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Limestone and clay
Site : This 2 hectare vineyard is located on the upper part of the hill, facing east. This vineyard was owned in the XIIIthe century by a canon of Beaune, Jean Bressand, hence the name "Bressandes"
The Vintage 2001 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a late Summer. It was as a whole homogeneous but the "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. Aging in cask during 18 months
Tasting : Beautiful ruby colour with vermilion nuances. Aromas of red berries and red plum jam mixed with spicy nuances. This wine both appealing and elegant is well-balanced and generous. Concentrated and mellow it offers a subdued tannic structure which gives him a silky character. This wine has a good persistence. This wine was awarded a silver Medal at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris in 2004.
Food pairing : White meat, roast, game and cheeses, especially the local cheeses (Epoisses and Citeaux).
