  • Terroir

    Appellation of the Côte de Nuits, Nuits-Saint-Georges Village or Village Premier Cru followed or not by the locality of origin produces mainly red wine.

  • Varietals

    100% Pinot Noir

  • Vinification

    After being hand-harvested, the grapes are put into stainless steel tanks for pre-fermentation maceration for 2 to 4 days. Then, alcoholic fermentation is begun using nothing but natural starters. Malolactic fermentation and ageing take place in oak barrels for 8 to 12 months.

  • Tasting notes

    Its purple robe, intense and sometimes moving towards mauve has a beautiful brilliance and offers a dense, sophisticated nose marked by aromas of blackcurrant and blueberry, enhanced by woody notes when young. Strong and vigorous, this full-bodied wine is chewy, balanced and structured. Long in the mouth, it is fully appreciated after a few years’ keeping: maturity gives it a sensual, sophisticated roundness.

  • Food pairing

    In addition to soft and washed rind cheeses, such as Epoisses, Langres or Soumaintrain, it is also ideal when partnered with flavoursome meats such as roast lamb, rib of beef, breast of duck or game.

  • Aeging and Service Temperature

    Serve at a temperature of 15° to 16°C. Delicious young, it has great potential for keeping for 10 to 15 years.
