    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 0.55 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.
    The clay-limestone soil sits atop a former river bed.

  • 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: 17 months.
