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 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of red berries mixed with liquorice and spices. Well balanced. Well integrated tannins. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with warm starters, white and red meat, matured cheese (Epoisses, Langres).
