2013
  • Characteristic

    After the challenges thrown with the vintage 2012, we were hoping for a peaceful 2013.But capricious Mother Nature had other ideas. Defying all weather forecasts, she never let up. After a long winter, a gloomy spring and a fine, providential summer, our pickers had to wait until the end of September to take up secateurs.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Poultry in sauce or veal fried with mushrooms, foie gras, lobster, crawfish, grilled or fried sea-fish, goat cheeses, reblochon, brie de meaux

  • Tasting note

    The main characteristics of this Premier Cru and deep aromatic concentration and a vibrant tension / acidity. The soil is mainly made of gravels and rocks which bring minerality to the wine. A little touch of smoky, toasty flavors during the finish. A silky and sharp (purity) wine!
