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 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. Vinification : whole bunch fermentation for approximately two weeks, the wines are then aged in our XVth century cellar for a period between 14 and 18 months. Moderate use of new oak.
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).
