Our oenologists' opinion
Medium garnet, shiny colour. Clear nose of cherry syrup, toasted, smoky and liquorice notes. Good balance on a rather full-bodied wine, small envelope. Nice frank and straightforward character with red fruits and smoky and liquorice notes. Good straightforward finish with melting tannins.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Domain and appellation
This small village is located at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits, very close to the regional capital.
After a classic winter, spring arrived with a bang with very high temperatures. A cold snap at the beginning of April slowed down the progress of the vines and May was rainy. The summer was hot and punctuated by heat waves. A few thunderstorms at the end of August brought rain that was beneficial to the vines, which were thus able to continue their normal growth cycle. Harvesting began on 6 September in excellent conditions, with the fruit in perfect health. Vinification: after a two-week fermentation in whole bunches, the red wines are aged in oak barrels in our 15th century cellars for a period of 14 to 18 months, with a moderate proportion of new barrels.
