    Vintage 2016
    26th-28th April: Devastating frost episode!

    After a very mild winter and a warm spring weather in the second half of April, the bud break was advanced but the frost with high level or humidity at the end of the month destroyed the parcels with the best exposition. After the frost the vine was developing slowly. Acceleration in growth and the maturity of grapes were possible thanks to very warm and dry summer, with ripening that started quickly by mid-August. The harvest started on 20th September and the sanitary condition of the vineyard was perfect.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety : 100% Pinot Noir on a 1.59 hectare plot.

  • Terroir

    South-facing sun exposure very steep. Meagre, light brown silty and clay-limestone soil. Fractured limestone. Former quarry. Perfect drainage.

  • 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
    The wine was aged entirely in new oak barrels.
    Duration of barrel ageing: 16 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in February 2018
    COLOR : Intense dark ruby red.
    NOSE : Very tempting, precise, fresh red berries (cherry, cherry-stone), evolving into slightly toasted notes.
    PALATE : Tender, flavourful, fruity and fleshy (fresh cherry). Fine and digestible tannins on the finish.
