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 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 18 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense Aromas of red berry and cherries mixed with liquorice and spices. Well-balanced and complex. Beautiful texture. Well-crafted tannins on an well-integrated oak note. Elegant and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Roasted, grilled or marinated meat, game, classical cheeses.
