Working the vines : This Grand Cru parcel is monitored by a vine-grower who takes care of the vineyard on a daily basis. He constantly seeks the right balance between his own work and the biological cycle, so as to allow the terroir to fully express its nuances.

Vinification and maturing : Following hand picking in small cases and meticulous sorting of the grapes, pressing takes place in two phases: evacuation of the first juice, then pressing in two-hourly cycles. Depending on the profile of the vintage, maturing is carried out for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels, with a proportion of new barrels that may be up to 20%.
General wine notes: Rich floral and fruit aromas with a toasty touch. Full-bodied and complex on the palate, this wine is enveloped with charming fleshiness. Very good ageing potential. 
Food-wine suggestions: Fish in cream sauce - Foie gras - Elegant starters 
Service: Between 12°C to 14°C
