Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : This village is located in the northern part of the Côte de Nuits in a short distance of Dijon, the regional capital.
The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure. Aging in oak during 11 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Delicate floral fragrances mixed with refreshing and intense aromas of raspberry and a hint of spice. Generous and complex. Delicate oak note. Beautiful fruit combination. Beautiful texture. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Enjoy with red or white meat, game, cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
