The Vintage 2007 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 16 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of red berries mixed with coffee and chocolate. Beautiful vanilla note. Complex and well-structured. Powerful, dense with a tight texture. Good density and very pure fruit. Elegant oak note and fine tannins. Generous and long aftertaste.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
