Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : This village is located in the northern part of the Côte de Nuits in a short distance of Dijon, the regional capital.
The Vintage 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Aromas of liquorice and raspberry mixed with coffee and a hint of chocolate. Well-structured and complex. Very pure fruit. Well integrated tannins and a refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, game, cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
