The wine

  • Description

    100% Pinot Noir from handpicked grapes and raised in oak casks.

  • Taste

    It is forceful on the nose combining aromas of violets and black fruit and a delicately toasted sensation; at the start in the mouth it is full and rich, followed by deep fruitiness and then a slight saline finish.

  • Serving temperature

    15/16°C. It is recommended to decante recent vintages so as to enhance the aroma.

The vintage

  • March was sunny and budburst happened too early. 5th of April frost made big damages in Puligny. Flowering occurred lately, with wind and rain, many flower aborted, confirming a low yield vintage. Fortunately, summer was hot and dry, enhancing maturation and sugar concentration by the end of summer. Harvest started 13th of September. White wines are generous and fruit driven, but high acidity gives a good concentration and length. Red wines benefited from the hot summer with a complex bouquet and round tanins.
