Alcohol : 13%

Grape(s) : Pinot Noir

Localisation : Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France

Tasting Notes : The color of this red wine is dense, a beautiful ruby. The nose is open, with cherry notes, and hints of white pepper. On the palate, the viscosity is very alert, very vibrant, and fresh tannins underscore the silky texture. This wine expresses the typical pure, fresh characteristics of Pinot Noir. Combined with the wine’s liveliness, its great minerality carries a touch of spices, and hints of garrigue. The frankness of this wine possesses the cherry character of the Premier Crus such as the Gevrey-Chambertin Petite Chapelle. With great elegance, great minerality and great persistence, this wine reveals an attractive salinity at the finish.

Food Pairing : It will go well with a salmis of guinea fowl and Lautrec garlic croutons, or a roast suckling pig and its soy-laced juices, a fillet of beef with a beetroot reduction, or duck breast with black currants.

The Domain : For more than 20 years, working the soil while respecting biodiversity has been one of our priorities. For us, respect for microbial life, auxiliary fauna and the quality of plant material (mass selection) are the major levers of our philosophy.

First of all, beautiful grapes, they are perfectly ripe grapes. Tasting the standing berries determines the best harvest date for each plot.

The choice of this date is very important: it will give us 80% of the style of the wine.

Our goal is to obtain perfect maturity in order to have silky and delicate tannins on the reds and to retain the freshness of the fruit on the whites to keep energy and balance.

We are looking for that, to capturewhat the grape gives naturally without forcing the potential of the terroir and the vintage. To respond to this philosophy of respect for the vine, we carry out little extraction and work mainly on the infusion, so that the balance and vibration are slowly put in place, day after day during maceration.
