Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
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 14th century under the latin word "Fae"
The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals. It gave way early September to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. Long and careful macerations have allowed to enhance the fleshy texture and smooth and elegant tannins of the Pinot Noir.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with intense aromas of ripe red berries. Complex, deep and subtle. Precise with a finely woven texture. Very pure fruit. Long and elegant aftertaste.
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
