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 2007 : 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 14 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of small red berries mixed with a hint of chocolate and a delicate vanilla note. Generous, powerful, dense with a velvety texture. Well-shaped oak note. Refined and well-integrated tannins. Good persistence.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red meat, grilled or marinated, games, matured cheeses.
