The Vintage 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks during 17 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Delicate fragrances of peony mixed with refreshing aromas of red berries (red currant and cherries) mixed with spices. Concentrated and refined. Well-balanced. Tight and complex texture. Elegant tannins. Long finish with a tinge of spices. SCORE : 90/92 - BURGHOUND APRIL - 2016
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce, game and pourltry as well as all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
