Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : A Chanson "monopole" in the very heart of the first Growths vineyards of Beaune. The vineyard 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 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening of the grapes. The harvest started mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 16 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of plum and red berries on a hint of spices. Complex, energetic. Generous and appealing texture. Deep and elegant. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
