Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir.
Terroir: Coming from the historic center of Clos-Saint-Denis, this old plot, with a very calcareous basement, produces more millerandais grapes. Plot planted in 1971-1973.
Vine Growing: Vines pruned in Guyot. The branches are crushed and spread on the ground to improve its aeration and its microbial life. These plots have always been maintained only by plowing. Pruning, wood pulling, evasivating, lifting, leaf stripping, as well as the harvest are among the main works carried out by hand.
Winemaking: Manual harvest, maceration for 5 to 7 days, fermentation with indigenous yeasts at controlled temperature (max 33 ° C), punching down and pumping over. The aging is done for 12 months in barrels (35% new barrels, first sedimentation), racking, then 2 to 3 months of aging in stainless steel tanks, (second sedimentation), then bottled without fining and generally without filtration.
Annual production: 1550 bottles, bottled on the estate.
Wine: Sustained color. Extraordinary, deep and elegant nose. The attack on the palate is precise, then very quickly a 'core of wine' settles in, exalted by fine and elegant aromas. Complexity, finesse, concentration, length in the mouth.
Aging potential: from 16 to 18 years old.
