Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The vineyard is ideally located in the heart of the famous Clos de Vougeot, nearby the Chateau.
The Vintage 2004 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a cool and humid Summer with short periods of very hot weather. The "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. The combination of strictly controlled yields and a meticulous vinification process played a major part in the quality of the vintage. Aging in casks during 15 months
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of red berries mixed with spices and a hint of chocolate. Beautiful vanilla note. Complex and generous with a well-defined fruit combination. Tannins are well-shaped and harmonious. Good persistence.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
