The Côte de Beaune-Villages vineyards are divided between Burgundy’s Côte-d’Or and Saône-et-Loire departments.
SoilThe vines are planted on east/southeast-facing slopes and piedmonts in calcareous clay soil, factors that provide good exposure to the sun and good drainage of the soil.
Grape variety100 % Pinot Noir.
VinificationVinification takes place in temperature-controlled open vats (28/30°C) with regular punching of the cap followed by 12 to 14 months ageing in oak barrels with at most 15% new oak.
RobeLovely cherry red in colour tinged with ruby.
NoseRedolent of mentholated notes with a slightly oaky base and red berry aromas (redcurrant).
PalateThe structure is harmonious with fine, well-integrated tannins and delectable flavours of red fruits.
Serve withTry this wine with pan-fried calf’s liver deglazed with sherry vinegar, roast pork with herbes de Provence or braised beef. It is also a fine match for a nice plate of cold cuts. As far as cheeses go, opt for creamy varieties such as Morbier or Pont-l’Evêque.
