    2005- vintage of the century: THe weather was just perfect throughout the growing season, which explains why 2005 is an altogether outstanding year.
    The red wines are very pure, powerful and concentrated. These are great wines with superb ageing potential, and are well worth waiting for. Patience will be richly rewarded.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir on a 0.55 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    This walled vineyard owned exclusively by the Domaine is located on the outskirts of the town of Meursault. The vineyard was established by the monks of Cîteaux and has produced red and white wines ever since.

    100% malolactic fermentation
    100% ageing in oak barrels
