The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 14 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Very refreshing aromas of red berries mixed with spices and vanilla. Generous and well-balanced. Very pure aromas and good density. Well-integrated oak note and refined tannic structure. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
