Beaune Grèves
1er Cru 2015

Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Soil : Gravel mixed with clay

Site : On the Mont Battois hillside, facing Beaune, the name "Grèves" derives from the sandy and gravely soil. Separated from the Clos des Fèves by a narrow path this Chanson vineyard covers 2 hectares

The Vintage 2015 : After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in summer were ideal with cold nights and warm days and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest started early September under a bright sunshine. The red wines develop beautiful aromas of ripe red and black berries with a fleshy texture. Aging in oak casks during 16 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Aromas of ripe red berries mixed with spices. Concentrated and refined. Tight and velvety texture. Very pure fruit combination. Elegant tannins. Long and fruity finish. Score : 91-94 Burghound - April 2017 - Score : 18.5/20 - Nr 1 of the top 10 wines of the year - Guide Bettane et Desseauve 2018

Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce, and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
