Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay, limestone and silica
Site : Village located between Vougeot and Nuits Saint Georges which produces some of the most prestigious wines of the Côte de Nuits.
The Vintage 2001 : Harvest took place at the end of September after a late Summer. It was as a whole homogeneous but the "tri", sorting of the grapes was drastic to keep only the very ripe berries. Aging in cask during 17 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour with purple tinges. Aromas of sherry with a hint of liquorice enhanced by a delicate vanilla note. Well-structured, well balanced with a well-integrated tannic structure. Good persistence.
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres, Citeaux).
