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 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 16 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe black berries mixed with spices. Delicate vanilla note. Powerful, generous and well-structured but with a very special elegance. Deep and dense. A delicate hint of minerality. Very long finish. Score : 92-95 Burghound - June 2015 Score : 19:20 Revue du Vin de France - Février 2016
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
