Tasting

The wine is full, rich and supple, fully expressing the fruity side of Pinot Noir. Red fruits dominate (strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant). Its abundant freshness makes it very pleasant and easy to drink. We advise keeping it for 5 to 8 years, although it is drinkable earlier for those lacking patience.

Vintage

The year of balance through freshness. In other words, it was a cold winter, followed by a mild spring then a cool and slightly damp summer. The harvest was late and the mildness of September allowed the grapes to achieve an excellent maturity without losing acidity. As the crop was 40% below normal, it goes without saying that the wines achieve a rare level of intensity. The reds are well-coloured, rich and powerful and gifted with good acidity; they reflect their climats with sincerity. The whites are crystalline in structure and rich in aromas well typifying their appellation. In general, there is good keeping potential for both colours (5 to 15 years).
