The Vintage 2017 : After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm températures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms épisodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes. 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 : Ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe red and black berries mixed with strawberry jam on a hint of liquorice. Complex and well-balanced. Fine texture. Elegant tannins. Long and spicy finish. Scores : 16,5/20 Jancis Robinson - 90-92/100 Burghound

Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce, game and poultry as well as all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
