Clos de la belle Marguerite Côte de Nuits Villages 2017

Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Soil : Clay and limestone

Site : The plot « Clos de la Belle Marguerite » is located in the village of Brochon in the heart of the Côte de Nuits, on a spot called « Queue de Hareng », in the vicinity of the vineyards of Fixin. This plot had been offered by Philippe le Hardy Duke of Burgundy to Jacques de Crauzon who named it after his wife : Marguerite de Vergy.

The Vintage 2017 : After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm temperatures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms episodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes. Vinification : whole bunch fermentation for approximately two weeks, the wines are then aged in our XVth century cellar for a period between 14 and 18 months. Moderate use of new oak.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Delicate fragrances mixed with aromas of black plum and black cherry. Spicy notes. Concentrated and well-structured. Dense and deep texture. Beautiful fruit expression. Elegant tannins. Long and spicy aftertaste.

Food pairing : Game, roasted meat and all the local cheeses.
