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 2007 : 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. Aged in French oak during 17 months.
Tasting : Bright red colour. Intense aromas of raspberry and red berry jam mixed with coffee notes and a a hint of vanilla. Complex and well-balanced. Beautiful structure. Silky texture. Well-integrated tannins. Elegant oak note. Generous aftertaste.
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres, Citeaux).
