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 XIIIth century by a Canon of Beaune, Jean Bressand, hence the name "Bressandes".
The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 12 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Very refreshing aromas of red berries mixed with tobacco and vanilla. Ample and well-structured. Good aromatic combination. Well integrated oak note and elegant tannic structure. Good persistence.
Food pairing : White meat, roast, lamb and all cheeses especially the local cheeses (Epoisses, Citeaux) as well as some goat cheeses.
