Terroir and breeding
The "Les Tuvilains" climat is located south of Beaune, on the Pommard side. The vines that produce this excellent 1er cru grow on clay-limestone soil mixed with scree on the slopes. The yield is 45hl/hectare. The vines are worked according to organic farming techniques. Vinification: 17 days in temperature-controlled vats, followed by 15 months in French oak barrels and then bottling at the estate.
The colour is purple, with a beautiful depth. The nose is distinguished by a beautiful balance of red fruits between raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. The palate announces a well-structured, elegant structure with notes of fruit mixed with a slightly toasted woodiness, all of which combined with a beautiful persistence give this excellent Beaune 1er cru a promising ageing potential.
This 1er cru of character will accompany dishes of character, hunt meat, roasts and braised meats, or cheeses with a pronounced flavour such as Munster or Epoisses.
