The Vintage 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Aging in oak.
Tasting : Deep ruby colour with purple nuances. Intense aromas of red berries and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Well-structured, dense and deep. Complex aromas with well-shaped tannins. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
