LOCATION : This very nice Climat is East oriented, in the middle of a slope and located at an altitude between 250 et 300 meters.

VINEYARD INFORMATION : The grapes produced in this vineyard ripe rather late compared to other locations and are consequently harvested at a later stage in order to get well ripe skins. This wine is full of breed, ample, elegant with aromas of iris, peonies, grey pepper and red berries. It is well-balanced with a nice persistency in the aftertaste.

VINIFICATION AND MATURATION : Harvest is done by hand, grapes are put in small cases in order not to damage the berries. Grapes are then sorted out by hand and destemmed. Maceration in open wooden vats or in stanless steel vats lasts 3 to 4 weeks. During fermentation pigeage is done twice per day. The wine ages 18 months in oak barrels from our cooperage; 1/3 of the barrels are new.

AGING POTENTIAL : 5-10 years

SERVING TIP: Grilled red tuna fish, grilled salmon, tataki beef, terrines (rabbit, porc), moussaka, veal liver, veal chop, fondue bourguignonne, tartar steak, roasted veal, duck breast salad, roasted guinea fowl, hard cheese.
