Terroir and breeding
A short distance from the estate, in the commune of Meloisey, the vines that give birth to this excellent Pinot grow on a soil made of limestone scree with marl formations. The average yield is 50hl/hectare. The vineyard is worked according to organic farming techniques. Vinification: 13 days in thermo-regulated vats, then 10 months maturation in French oak barrels before bottling at the estate.
The colour is a beautiful bright ruby. The nose is deliciously fruity, delicate, and evokes morello cherry and raspberry. The attack is fresh, with aromas of red fruits and a beautiful substance. The silky, well-melted tannins contribute to the very fine balance of the whole.
Both light and with its well asserted aromas, this excellent Hautes Côtes de Beaune will be a good companion for roasted meats, filet mignon, leg of lamb and gratins.
