Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Chalk mixed with silt and clay
Site : On the slope of the village of Pommard, one of the most famous growth for Pinot Noir in the Côte de Beaune area.
The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals. It gave way early September to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. Long and careful macerations have allowed to enhance the fleshy texture and smooth and elegant tannins of the Pinot Noir. Aging in oak during 18 months
Tasting : Deep ruby colour. Intense of red berries and raspberry mixed with pepper and vanilla. Complex and well-structured. Very pure fruit combination. Tight texture. Delicate oak and elegant tannins. Long and generous finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red or white meat , grilled or marinated, games
