The Vintage 2010 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 13 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Very refreshing aromas of small berries (bramble fruit) mixed with spices. Generous and punchy. Beautiful aromatic complexity. Tight texture. Structural tannins and well-integrated oak note. Persistent aftertaste.
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
