Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Chambolle Musigny is a small village located in the heart of the Côte de Nuits between Gevrey Chambertin and Clos de Vougeot
The Vintage 2005 : Harvest took place in the early days of September after a dry and very hot summer after a superb growing season - long and cold winter followed by a rainy and humid spring. Exceptional weather conditions for an exceptional vintage. Full maturation of the grapes and good concentration. Aging in oak casks during 15 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Very pure aromas of blackberry and raspberry mixed with toasty nuances and spices. Beautiful vanilla note. Generous, ample and well-balanced. Good aromatic density. Well defined tannins and good persistence.
Food pairing : Poultry, grilled meat or "en sauce" and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
