The Vintage 2008 : 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 vineyard and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 14 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Very pure aromas of red berries (raspberry) mixed with liquorice and spices. Beautiful vanilla note. Well-balanced. Beautiful texture and very pure aromatic definition. Well integrated tannins. Subtle oak note. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : Poultry, grilled meat or "en sauce" and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
