Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Mix of limestone and clay

The Vintage 2007 : 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. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced crunchy red wines with very pure aromas.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of raspberry and red-berry mixed with a hint of pepper. Concentrated and well-structured. Tight texture and very pure fruit combination enhanced by a subtle acidity. Refreshing and generous aftertaste.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meats, pâté, pie, grilled or roasted meat, fowls and "fromages à pâte pressée".
