Monthélie 2013

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 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 16 months

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe red berries (strawberry and cherry) and ripe plum on a hint of vanilla. Well-balanced and well-structured. Deep with a finely grained texture. Subtle oak note and elegant tannins. Long and spicy aftertaste.

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red meat grilled or en sauce and French cheeses (Epoisses, Citeaux or goat).
