Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Site : One of the most well-known Premiers Crus of Pommard, located at the top of the slope. South East orientation.
The Vintage 2010 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 16 months.
Tasting : Dark rubis color. Intense aromas of cooked red berries mixed with liquorice and spices. Well-balanced and complex. Outstanding aromatic combination. Complex and well-balanced. Tight and dense texture. Well-crafted oak note, powerful tannins. Longs and generous aftertaste.
Food pairing : Red meat grilled or en sauce and all sorts of cheeses, especially our local cheeses like Epoisses, Citeaux and Langres.
