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 2005 : Exceptional after a superb growing season - cold winter, rainy spring followed by hot and dry summer. Grapes picked at optimum ripeness and in perfect health, hence a minimum sorting was required.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of red fruits (raspberry, cherry) mixed with liquorice and spices and enhanced by a subtle vanilla note. Well balanced and generous. Elegant tannic structure. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with warm starters, white and red meat, matured cheese (Epoisses, Langres).
