    2004: A difficult vintage to describe
    The white wines are very good, and similar to 2001, with lemon and citrus aromas as well as very attractive overripe notes. To drink now or hold (for people who enjoy aged white wines).
    The reds are still closed at present, and not easy to evaluate.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir on a 0.36 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Located in "Champs Traversins", in the heart of the historic Echézeaux vineyard, the vines are planted in north/south rows at the end bordering on La Combe d'Orveau.
    Fairly thin brown soil with fine sandy/siliceous gravel on the surface.
    A perfect microclimate: cool, well-ventilated, and healthy thanks to an air current

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 17 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: 21 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2005
    COLOUR: Deep, dark reddish-black with crimson highlights
    BOUQUET: Very delicate and refined with hints of ripe cherry and fresh grapes
    PALATE: Powerful, concentrated and intense with flavours of red fruit, sweet spices, mint, cocoa and nutmeg
    Elegant, refined tannin
