Grape : Pinot noir
Location : A small combe cutting harmoniously into the hillside, it produces a sought-after wine.
Sub-soil : The soil is clay-limestone, on slabs of rock, with very little earth. The vines are on steep slopes (at 340-380m), ideally exposed to morning sunshine.
Vines : This parcel was planted in 1954. Its yield is never too high and grape healthiness is often perfect. Annual production touches on 2400 bottles.
Vinification : 40% of new oak during 18 months
Food pairing : Characterized by beautiful length, this wine is very well balanced. Its texture is remarkable; it is a vivacious wine with well-integrated tannins. It offers aromas of small black fruits: blackcurrant, blackberry and myrtle berry. It is a very good wine for keeping which will reach its peak at around 5 or 6 years. This appellation is clearly successful for us and often highly-rated at tastings.
Vineyards size : 5,5 hectares
Farming : Agriculture raisonnée Some parcels are worked with a horse
The top value of the domaine : A huge respect of the Terroir, and a grower with a lot of humility.
