    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 0.56 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    This vineyard, located in the commune of Meursault, is unusual in that it is entitled to produce Volnay-Santenots Premier Cru red wine if planted with Pinot Noir and Meursault-Santenots Premier Cru white wine if planted with Chardonnay. This very sunny terroir produces charming wines with a pronounced bouquet and elegant tannin.

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 16 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: 15 months.

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2008 (after bottling)
    COLOUR: Deep, dark ruby-red
    BOUQUET: Very spicy (sweet spices) nutty aromas
    PALATE: Truly delicious with ripe red fruit, flavours
    Velvety, spicy tannin as well as a thirst-quenching quality
