    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 0.84 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    A very mature, deep soil with brown topsoil
    Subsoil of large, fractured limestone blocks
    East-facing sun exposure

  • 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: 23 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2005
    COLOUR: Beautiful ruby-red with purplish highlights
    BOUQUET: Rich and complex with black fruit aromas and smoky, toasty overtones
    PALATE: Warm, with spicy, peppery, toasty and liquorice aromas
    Concentrated, ripe and tightly-knit tannin on the aftertaste
