Monthélie 2012

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 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. Aging in oak casks during 12 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 and well-structured. 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).
