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 2015 : After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in Summer were ideal with cold nights and warm days and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest started early September under a bright sunshine. Vinification : whole bunch fermentation for approximately two weeks, the wines are then aged in our XVth century cellar for a period between 14 and 18 months. Moderate use of new oak
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe dark berries, black plum and black currant mixed with spices on a hint of vanilla. Well-balanced and complex. Concentrated and deep with a velvety texture. Well-crafted oak note and well-integrated tannins. Long and elegant aftertaste.. Scores : 90-93 Burghound - 16.5/20 Jancis Robinson.
Food pairing : White meat, roast, lamb and all cheeses especially the local cheeses (Epoisses, Citeaux) as well as some goat cheeses.
