Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
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 2007 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 16 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of blackcurrant, liquorice, black chocolate on a hint of vanilla. Complex, 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.
