The Vintage 2017: After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm températures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms épisodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes.
Vinification : whole bunch fermentation for approximately two weeks, the wines are then aged in our XVth century cellar for a period between 14 and 18 months. Moderate use of new oak.
Tasting: Garnet colour. Aromas of black berries (blackcurrant and backberry) mixed with floral fragrances. Complex, tight with a fleshy texture. Beautiful tannic structure. Long and spicy finish.
Scores : 16/20 JANCIS ROBINSON - 16,5/20 GUIDE BETTANE & DESSEAUVE
Food pairing: To be enjoyed with white or red meat, grilled or roasted, games and all sorts of cheeses especially all the cheeses produces in Burgundy (Epoisses, Langres, Citeaux, Ami du Chambertin).
