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 2007 : 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 fruit marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 15 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of blackberry mixed with spices on an outstanding vanilla note. Powerful, complex and well-structured. Very refreshing fruit 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.
