    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 0.36 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: 19 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Pure, well-focused fruit
    Concentrated, silky tannin
    Classy aftertaste
