Monthélie 2014

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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks during 15 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe red berries mixed with liquorice and spices. Well-balanced and well-structured. Complex and tight texture. Delicate aromatic combination. Subtle oak note and well-shaped tannins. Long and spicy aftertaste.

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