The Vintage 2010 : 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 17 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Very pure aromas of red berries (cherries and raspberries) mixed with spices. Beautiful vanilla note. Well-balanced. Voluminous with an elegant and refined texture and a 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).
