This red Burgundy is often bursting with fruit. It is very Pinot.
Barrel ageing in 30% new oak gives it the weight and suppleness necessary to soften the tannins, which are not quite as refined as in our crus.
It is surprising to note, that given its less noble origins, certain vintages have an ageing potential of more than 10 years.
This wine will accompany white and red meat, either roasted or cooked in wine sauces, charcuterie and soft cheeses.
Ageing in barrels (30% new oak)
Our Red Burgundy is a blend of 3 parcels (0.87 ha total) : Les Champs d’argent, Les Glapigny and Les Pasquiers with an average age of 40 years old.
These parcels are all situated on the flat side, separated from the hillside by the RN 74, between Nuits St. Georges and Flagey-Echezeaux.
The earth is “heavy”, richer and more humid, stones are rather rare… The clay will give power to the wines and allow the vines to less suffer from the drought.
