Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : This vineyard is located at the border of the Premier Cru vineyards of this little village, nested between between Volnay and Meursault
The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. Long and careful macerations have allowed to enhance the fleshy texture and smooth and elegant tannins of the Pinot Noir. Aged in oak during 14 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Delicate fragrances of violet mixed with aromas of ripe red berries (strawberry and cherry) on a hint of vanilla. Well-balanced. Beautiful structure. Finely grained texture. Subtle oak note and elegant tannins. Long and fruity aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red meat grilled or en sauce and French cheeses (Epoisses, Citeaux or goat).
