Vinification : The grapes are taken from the vine to the estate in crates. After sorting, the clusters of grapes are lightly pressed. The whole bunch is macerated without pressing, with only daily over-pumping in order to obtain the full aromatic structure and colour of the wine. The time in the vat is about 15 days with alcoholic fermentation. Pressing is carried out following generations of pure Burgundy tradition using a vertical hydraulic hand press. Then the wines are racked and put into barrels.
Ageing : ageing is in oak barrels for a period of 18 to 24 months in our cellars (malo-lactic fermentation). Bottling takes place on the estate.
Keeping potential : over 10 years (wine for long-term keeping)
Should be served with : red roast or grilled meat, meat in sauces or game and ripe cheese.
Serving temperature : 15° to 18°C.
Description of the wine : a ruby red colour, deep and brilliant. A complex nose with aromas of ripe red fruits and hints of brushwood. On the palate it proves to be a powerful and fine wine of great aromatic complexity and beautifully balanced.
