Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The area of production is located in the commune of Nuits Saint Georges, in the heart of the Côte de Nuits. The grapes are sourced from selected plots of vineyard South of the village, at the border of the "Premier Cru" area
The Vintage 2003 : An exceptionally early harvest end of August due to an outstanding hot summer. Grapes were extremely well mature with high concentration. Very low yields. Grapes had to be cooled down before pressing. Aging in oak during 12 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of red jammy fruits (red berry), leather enhanced by a hint of chocolate. Outstanding vanilla note. Well-structured, generous, concentrated, with a good aromatic combination enhanced by an elegant oak note. Tannins are present but without too much relief. Good persistence.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with white or red meat, grilled or roasted, games and all sorts of cheeses especially all the cheeses produces in Burgundy (Epoisses, Langres, Citeaux, Ami du Chambertin
