Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Marl and limestone
Site : This vineyard is located on the commune of Volnay, famous for its great red wines among the best in the Côte de Beaune.
The Vintage 2000 : After a quick bud burst, followed by an early flowering period (beginning of June), some rain and cool temperatures in July slowed down the ripening of the grapes. Good weather at the end of the summer and a prolonged hot period in early September, which ensured good concentration of the juice.
Tasting : Ruby colour with purple tinges. Aromas of red berries in jam on spicy and vanilla notes. Charming, elegant, aromatic combination of plum and candied cherries enhanced by a delicate oak note. Harmonious, supple, good tannic structure and good persistence.
Food pairing : Roasted, grilled or marinated meat, game, classical cheeses.
