Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Selected plots of vineyards in Côte de Nuits, mostly Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien et Corgoloin.
The Vintage 2001 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a late Summer. It was as a whole homogeneous but the "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. Aging in oak during 12 months
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of red berries (raspberry and red-currant) mixed with gingerbread and enhanced by a hint of vanilla. Good structure. Harmonious and complex with elegant tannins. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with warm starters, white and red meat, matured cheese (Epoisses, Langres).
