  • Characteristic

    The wines of the 2016 vintage have been exhibiting a quality that was quite unexpected, given the difficult start to the year. Climate events in the spring took a severe toll on the harvest, which will no doubt be among the smallest of the past two decades. Fortunately, this has not stopped Château de la Crée making wines that will fully live up to the expectations of lovers of Burgundy. In the course of vinification, the qualitative potential was soon confirmed, with lovely balance, which will give the wines elegance, finesse and structure, for both reds and whites. This constitutes the signature of this vintage.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Thick cut beefsteak, lamb, or stewed poultry, cheeses with well-developed flavours (Époisses, Langres and Soumaintrain, but also Comté)...

  • Tasting note

    The wine has an intense and dark ruby color delivering a discrete nose of undergrowth and cherry. The mouth is long, with exquisite notes of leather, chocolate and spiciness (sch as pepper or cinnamon). A rich and powerful wine.
