Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Chalk mixed with silt and clay
Site : On the slope of the village of Pommard, one of the most famous growth for Pinot Noir in the Côte de Beaune area.
The Vintage 2007 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 15 months.
Tasting : Deep ruby colour. Intense aromas of ripe red berries and liquorice with a hint of minerality. Well-structured and well-balanced. Very pure fruit. Tight texture. Delicate oak and well-integrated tannins. Long and generous finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with red or white meat , grilled or marinated, games.
