Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : Area of production located on the commune Savigny les Beaune, a small village adjacent to Beaune.
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 14 months
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Fresh aromas of red fruit (red-berry) mixed with cocoa. Well-structured and generous. Very fresh aromatic combination. Delicate oak note and well-integrated tannins. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : Red and white meat roasted or "en sauce", game, cheeses.
