Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Limestone mixed with clay
Site : The vineyard is located on the hill of the commune of Santenay, a small village South of the Côte de Beaune, near Chassagne Montrachet.
The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 10 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Aromas of red berries and spices and enhanced by a hint of vanilla. Generous and well-crafted. Very pure fruit on refined oak notes. Well-shaped tannic structure. Good persistence.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with roast meat or meat en sauce, games and most cheeses (especially Citeaux, Epoisses, Langres).
