Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Limestone mixed with clay
Site : The vineyard is located on the hill of the commune of Santenay, a small village South of the Côte de Beaune, near Chassagne Montrachet.
The Vintage 2015 : After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in Summer were ideal with cold nights and warm days and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest started early September under a bright sunshine. The red wines develop beautiful aromas of ripe red and black berries with a fleshy texture. Aging in oak casks during 14 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Delicate fragrances of peony mixed with refreshing aromas of ripe red berries (raspberry) mixed with liquorice. Well-balanced and complex. Very pure fruit. Well-integrated tannins and delicate oak note. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with roast meat or meat en sauce, games and most cheeses (especially Citeaux, Epoisses, Langres).
