Site : A Chanson "monopole" in the very heart of the first Growths vineyards of Beaune. The vineyards covering 3.80 ha is located on a mid slope. The "Clos des Fèves" was already known in the 13th century under the latin word "Fae"
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 with purple tinges. Intense aromas of red berries mixed with spices and a hint of chocolate. Beautiful vanilla note. Ample, concentrated with a deep fruit combination. Tannins are well-shaped and harmonious. Good persistence.
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
