The Cuvée Marine
The first harvest was in 1999. This is a fresh wine with citrus notes (lemon) and exotic nuances (banana, pineapple, passion fruit…)
The mineral structure is moderated by ageing the wine on the lees. A hint of iodine and a slight saline quality complete this wine, which would complement raw or grilled fish, shellfish in a court-bouillon, white meat, charcuterie without garlic and goat cheese… Barrel ageing lasts approximately 12 months (30% new barrels and 70% in tanks).
We recommend you drink this wine young, while still fruity. It makes an excellent aperitif as it awakens the taste buds.
This 1.73 ha single block parcel is situated in the commune of Concoeur just above the village of Vosne-Romanée. Originally bare of any vines, it was planted in stages. (96, 97, 98).
Chardonnay vines make up 1 ha on the upper part of the slope, where the earth is deeper and more humid (this is where the water of the hillside resurges). The 0.73 ha of Pinot Noir were planted on the lower, flatter part of the parcel, where fossiliferous lava is in great abundance and assures excellent drainage.
