Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The vineyards are located in the Hautes Côtes, West of the Côte de Beaune, on hills at an average height of 200-300 meters.
The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Aromas of red berries and black cherries mixed with spices. Well-structured and well-balanced with rounded tannins. Lively with a good persistence.
Food pairing : Super "everyday" Burgundy, ideal with braised and roasted meats, as well as meat-sauced pastas.
