Clos des Fèves Beaune 1er Cru  - Monopole - 2000

Beaune Clos des Fèves - Monopole
1er Cru

Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Soil : Clay and limestone

Site : A Chanson "monopole" in the very heart of the first Growths vineyards of Beaune. The vineyards covering 3.80 ha is located on a mid slope. The "Clos des Fèves" was already known in the 13th century under the latin word "Fae"

The Vintage 2000 : After a quick bud burst, followed by an early flowering period (beginning of June), some rain and cool temperatures in July slowed down the ripening of the grapes. Good weather at the end of the summer and a prolonged hot period in early September, which ensured good concentration of the juice. Aging in cask during 14 months.

Tasting : Ruby colour. Aromas of red berries in jam on spicy and vanilla notes. Charming, elegant and well-balanced. Aromatic combination of plum and candied cherries enhanced by a delicate oak note. Harmonious, supple, good tannic structure and good persistence.

Food pairing : Game (pheasant) poultry, grilled meat, truffles and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
