Nose: Elegant, fairly reticent, very mineral with flowery, vegetal undertones enlivened with a honey note.
Palate: A fine, pure wine, very fat. The nature of the "terroir" favours the harmonious development of the aromas of he grapes, with nuances of hazelnuts and grilled almonds. A rich, luscious wine.
Food and wine pairing
The vines are planted on small, steep cirques with an eastern/south-eastern exposure at altitudes of between 250 and 300 metres.
Vinification and maturing
Vintage : 2018
Once again, the 2018 vintage in Burgundy offered the vision scenario of an early harvest. It was already the case in 2017, and 2018 was even earlier! This vintage comes in the earliest harvest palmares compare to the norm (around the 20th of September) and come just in the second place after the unforgettable 2003 vintage when harvest between the 20 and the 25th of August in the Côte d’Or department.
All along the year 2018, the weather was very diverse, even atypical according to the month and the area. After a rainy start in the year, the spring period was very summery with sunshine above the seasonal norms and quite scarce rain.
This trend continued until the harvest with a very hot and dry summer, this allowed the grapes to finish their maturation early. Harvest started on the 20th of August and lasted until the third week of September… a particularly long amplitude.
At least quality is here for this 2018 vintage, but also quantity. Grapes arrived to the winery with a perfect state of health. Concentrated, structured, generous, rich and powerful are some of the adjectives that characterize this magnificent vintage.
