Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Limestone and clay
Site : This 2 hectare vineyard is located on the upper part of the hill, facing east. This vineyard was owned in the XIIIth century by a Canon of Beaune, Jean Bressand, hence the name "Bressandes".
The Vintage 2019 : After a mild winter, spring settled down with important variations of temperatures and abundant rain which engendered millerandage (small berries). Summer was warm punctuated by several heat waves and a few thunderstorms épisodes which brought some water. The harvest started mid september under a bright sunshine. After a whole cluster fermentation in vat, the wines are aged in oak casks for a period of 14 up to 18 months in our XVth century cellar. Moderate use of new oak.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe red berries (raspberry) and liquor of rasberry mixed with spices. Complex with a deep and tight texture. Elegant tannins. Long and refined aftertaste wih a light hint of minerality.
Food pairing : White meat, roast, lamb and all cheeses especially the local cheeses (Epoisses, Citeaux) as well as some goat cheeses.
