Old vine (average age 50 years) Pinot Noir from a single plot just south of the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges.
The grapes are hand-sorted before careful fermentation over a month then aged in oak for 12 months, with final assembly over 2 months in steel. On the nose, a pronounced mix of red and black berries with notes of sloe, strawberries and cherries, leather and tobacco. The wine is beautifully structured on the palate with a firm grip and good acidic freshness, fine tannins and a long finish.
Decanting recommended over a couple of hours when young, peak drinking is 5 to 10 years from vintage once properly stored.
