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 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 cask during 17 months
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe red berries mixed with leather and tobacco on an outstanding vanilla note. Dense, powerful, generous and well-structured. Very pure fruit. Well-integrated oak and solid tannins. Outstanding 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.
