Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The area of production is located in the commune of Nuits Saint Georges, in the heart of the Côte de Nuits. The grapes are sourced from selected plots of vineyard South of the village, at the border of the "Premier Cru" area
The Vintage 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 15 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe crunchy cherries mixed with spices. Well-balanced with a good concentration. Silky tannins. Persistent aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with white or red meat, grilled or roasted, games and all sorts of cheeses especially all the cheeses produces in Burgundy (Epoisses, Langres, Citeaux, Ami du Chambertin
