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 2010 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aging in oak during 15 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense Aromas of raspberry mixed with liquorice and spices. Well-balanced with a fine texture. Very pure fruit. Refined expression. Well-crafted tannins on an well-integrated oak note. Elegant and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Roasted, grilled or marinated meat, game, classical cheeses.
