Winery Notes:
AGE OF THE VINE:
45 years old

GEOLOGY:
The grapes come from the vineyards situated on the regional appellation area on the Côte de Beaune.

SOIL:
clay and limestone. 100% Pinot Noir. Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

VINIFICATION:
Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed. (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts from the grape berries during around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing

AGEING:
The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak of 500 liters (10% for new oak) during 10 months. We do the blend then and the wine is bottled according to the lunar calendar ("fruit day”).

TASTING NOTE:
A pleasant wine. Fresh, fruity and ample.

FOOD PAIRING:
Red meats, poultry, cheese or as an "aperitif".
