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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks during 17 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of plum and red berries on a hint of sandalwood. Complex, energetic. Underlying tension. Refined texture. Deep and elegant. Persistent aftertaste. Score: 90-92/100 - Burghound - April 2016
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
