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. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks during 16 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of black berries mixed with spices and a hint of vanilla. Well-structured and dense. Deep and complex texture. Well-integrated tannins. Long aftertaste on a hint of minerality. WINE SPECTATOR SCORE : 92/100
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
