    2006: Beautiful, very classic vintage with a heatwave in the month of July. Very great year for white wines - these are rich and opulent. Lovely vintage producing delicious red wines that are extremely enjoyables as of now.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir on a 0.73 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Situated on the hill where the Grands Crus of Corton are located. The south-east facing vineyards and slight slope ensure perfect ripening.
    This sun exposure, combined with stony clay-limestone soil, is conducive to early ripening whatever the weather during the growing season.

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 20 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) was done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation.
    100% malolactic fermentation
    100% ageing in oak barrels
    Duration of ageing: 20 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2008
    COLOUR: deep ruby-red
    BOUQUET: Very elegant, with hints of liquorice and spice, going on to reveal elegant black fruit aromas
    PALATE: Concentrated, full-bodied and savoury with toasty, fruity nuances
    Powerful, ripe tannin
