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 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aging in oak during 16 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense Aromas of raspberry mixed with cocoa and spices. Well-balanced with a fine texture. Very pure fruit. Elegant tannins on an well-integrated oak note. Well-shaped tannic structure. Generous and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Roasted, grilled or marinated meat, game, classical cheeses.
