  • Characteristic

    After the dormant winter period, the vines returned to life in clement, warm and dry conditions. At the end of June, the weather changed, becoming cool and damp, but ripening continued nonetheless. The return of the sun and a northerly wind - the signature of September in the Bourgogne wine region - led to ideal conditions for the vines to reach full maturity. Picking began in mid-September in a serene and sunny atmosphere.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Poultry and red meats, grilled spare-ribs and barbecued pork

  • Tasting note

    Crispy aromas with a deep aromatic intensity (especially red fruits such as cherry). Warm and fluid, its tannic structure is notably delicate and subtle. The mouth, fresh, and tinged with liquorice, lays down a meaty foundation for peppery flavours. A great wine!
