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 2017 : After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm températures 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 épisodes 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.
Tasting : Bright ruby. Fragrances of peony mixe with romas of ripe red fruit jam and plum mixed with spices on a hint of vanilla. Complex and well-balanced. Supple texture. Well-shaped tannins. Long and fruity aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with warm starters, white meat, matured cheeses.
