Site : One of the most prestigious Appellation of Gevrey Chambertin. Located on the upper part of the hill, in the very heart of the Grands Crus area of Grands Crus, with an exceptional eastward orientation. The plot covers 15 ha of stony soil.
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 vineyards and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 16 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of blackcurrant, liquorice, chocolate and leather. Voluminous, powerful, generous and well-structured. Very pure fruit and beautiful texture. Well-integrated oak and well-crafted tannins. Outstanding and complex persistence.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
