    2001 is a vintage that was affected by challenging weather.
    A hail storm in the Côte de Beaune in early August did considerable damage in Beaune, Volnay and Pommard. Results: The wines are best enjoyable when young and fruity, and should not be aged for too long.
    The Côte de Nuits did better, producing very elegant, refined wines with great varietal character.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir on a 0.73 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Situated on the hill where the Grands Crus of Corton are located. The south-east facing vineyards and slight slope ensure perfect ripening.
    This sun exposure, combined with stony clay-limestone soil, is conducive to early ripening whatever the weather during the growing season.

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 19 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: 20 months
