Region: Vosne-Romanee, Cote-d’Or, Burgundy
Our vineyards producing our Vosne-Romanée are located in the climats ‘Les Quartiers de Nuits’, ‘les Hautes Maizières’ and ‘Les Chaladins’. Total area : 1.05 hectares. Climate & soil : The three plots are located in the north of Vosne-Romanée, touching Vougeot Grand Cru. The soil is a classic mix of limestone and clay. However the plot ‘Les Hautes Maizières’ offers a solid calcareous component.
At harvest, the grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic components’ extraction. Then maceration lasts for 15 days during which we’ll use only pigeages (punching the cap).
Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts. After maceration, free and press wines are separated for aging. Aging is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barreks during 18 months with around 30% of new barrels. Only French oak is used, coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests.
Beautiful garnet colour with purple tints, deep and clear. The nose is powerful with black fruits aromas (blackcurrant, blueberry) surrounded by toasty notes. On the palate, the wine is here with powerful but smooth and ripe tannins. Black fruits and toast notes express again very well. Lovely balance and long aftertaste. Our Vosne-Romanée 2013 will perfectly match with prime cut of beef, beef roast, duck cutlet, as well as young or mature cheese.
