Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Limestone with clay
Site : On the southern hill of Beaune, a vineyard of 2 hectares, mid slope facing East.
The Vintage 2003 : An exceptionally early harvest at the end of August, due to an outstandingly hot summer. Grapes were very well matured with high concentration. Very low yields. Aged in French oak for 10 months.
Tasting : Beautiful ruby colour. Intense aromas of cherry jam, and plums. Hints of caramel underlined by toasty oak notes. Well-balanced, complex and concentrated. Lovely defined flavours with fine tannins. Long length.
Food pairing : Perfectly matched with red meat grilled and all cheeses, especially the local Burgundian specialties like Epoisses or Citeaux.
