Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay-limestone
Site : Grapes are exclusively sourced from select vineyards in the Côte de Nuits, from plots of Domaine Chanson and from Terroirs located in the south of the Côte de Beaune.
The Vintage 2016 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the weather at the end of spring was warmer but rainy which engendered a late flowering and produced small berries in many plots (millerandage). The summer was warm and dry. September was warm and the harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines are crunchy and well-balanced with a very pure fruit. Aging during 11 months.
Tasting : Bright red colour. Intense aromas of crisp raspberries and red berries mixed with spices. Complex and well-structured. Dense with a soft texture and well-integrated tannins. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Super "everyday" Burgundy, ideal with braised and roasted meats, as well as meat-sauced pastas.
