Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay-limestone
Site : Grapes are exclusively sourced from select vineyards in the Côte de Nuits, from plots of Domaine Chanson and from Terroirs located in the south of the Côte de Beaune.
The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure.
Tasting : Bright red colour. Intense aromas of ripe cherries mixed with liquorice and spices. Complex and well-crafted. Very pure fruit. Crunchy texture and well integrated tannins. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Super "everyday" Burgundy, ideal with braised and roasted meats, as well as meat-sauced pastas.
