Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Limestone with clay
Site : Selected plots of vineyards in Côte de Beaune villages, mostly Pernand-Vergelesses, Auxey-Duresses and Ladoix.
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.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Intense aromas of violet and raspberry mixed with a touch of vanilla. Dense, generous and well-structured. Very pure aromas. Elegant tannins on a subtle oak-note. Very pleasant finish. .
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with warm starters, white meat, matured cheeses.
