Grape Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir, from a wide range of plots around the Nuits Saint Georges. The average age of the vines is 85 years
Taste Profile: An intense wine with elegant tannins on floral notes, with luscious accents of red fruit.
Winemaking Process: After a few days of pre-fermentation maceration (5–6 days), fermentation takes place over about 15 days, without adding yeast. The cap-punching and pumping over operations are carried out as necessary to preserve all of the wine's elegance without excessive extraction. After pneumatic pressing and several days in vats, the wines are racked off by gravity, with the proportion of new barrels no greater than 25%.
