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 2017 : After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm températures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms épisodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour with purple nuances. Intense and refreshing aromas of ripe berries (raspberries and cherries) mixed with liquorice. Complex and well-structured. Deep and tight texture. Well-integrated tannins. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Super "everyday" Burgundy, ideal with braised and roasted meats, as well as meat-sauced pastas.
