Origine

Area: 1.9 hectares

Average age: 12 to 50 years    

Soil: very calcareous white marl

Exposure: facing directly east

Vinification

The yield is rigorously reduced by all the work carried out in the vineyards. The grapes are harvested by hand and go into crates which are transported to the winery every ¾ hour, at most, to be sorted by the team at the domaine, before being fully destemmed and going into vat for a period of 3-4 weeks, depending on the vintage. The yeast inoculation is natural. Cap punching and pumping over operations are carried out according to the characteristics of the vintage.  All the wine is aged in barrels, of which 20% are new, using the wood only for the purpose of bringing out the personality of the terroir.  After malo-lactic fermentation (which usually occurs in May or June), the wine is transferred into a vat to re-adjust the oxydation-reduction potential and restore freshness and balance before bottling 20-22 months after the harvest.  There is generally no filtration of the wine:  the wines show very low turbidity after 2 winters barrel and vat ageing. The wines are released for sale 2 or 3 years after bottling when they are already at their best.

Notes de dégustation

This wine is characterized by its concentration and power. When young, the aromas are lively and invigorating, with wild red berries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. The wine is pure and explosive on entry to the palate.  This parcel soaks up hours of sunshine producing ripe tannins, which will show a lovely, soft character.  With ageing, the wine develops a harmonious fruity bouquet, accentuated by liquorice, and even chocolate, notes. 

Mets d'accompagnements

Perfect with red meat, game, marinated dishes, as well as most cheeses.  Serve at 17°-18°C.

When the wine is young, open the bottle one hour before serving, when older (5-10 years), you can also decant it:  once the initial aromas have faded, the full force of the fruit will come through.
