Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Chalk mixed with silt and clay
Site : One of the most famous Premier Cru vineyards in Pommard situated on mid slope. South-East orientation
The Vintage 2004 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a cool and humid Summer with short periods of very hot weather. The "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. The combination of strictly controlled yields and a meticulous vinification process played a major part in the quality of the vintage. Aging in casks during 15 months
Tasting : Bright ruby with purple tinges. Intense aromas of red berries (raspberry ans red berry) mixed with chocolate and a toasted bread note enhanced by a touch of vanilla. Well-balanced, generous and silky. Beautiful aromatic combination. Smooth tannins and subtle oak note. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red meat, grilled or marinated, games, matured cheeses.
