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 2006 : 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 16 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of blackberry mixed with leather and spices on an outstanding vanilla note. Powerful, generous and well-structured. Very pure aromatic combination. Elegant oak and well crafted 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.
