Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Marly limestone - rough limestone with silt of clay
Site : In the Northern part of the Côte de Beaune, in the commune of Pernand Vergelesses.
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 12 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of small red berries (strawberries and cherries) mixed with spices on a hint of vanilla. Well-balanced and concentrated. Well-integrated tannins. Subtle oak note. Long and complex aftertaste. .
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red or white meat, grilled or toasted, games or classic cheeses like goat.
