3 Premier Cru are declassified and blended with our village (Sazennay, Champs Martins and Clos Levêque). Grapes are harvested by hand then sorted out and totally destemmed. Maceration is made and alcoholic fermentation lasts from 15 to 18 days in temperatures’ control vats, with punching of the cap. Aging is 100 % made in oak barrels with 15 to 20 % of new barrel during 10 month. Malolactic fermentation is 100 % realized. Wine is bottled in Traditional Burgundy bottles.
A bright colour with purple hints. The elegant nose opens on intense fruity aromas; juicy spring cherry, raspberry and redcurrant. The fruit and wood are well integrated and express light notes of toasted almond. The palate is full and generous, well balanced on the cherry and pinot aromas. Tannins are fine and delicate, smooth and persistent. Lovely finish and length.
