Production area

The Village of Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits counts 68 ha of Grands Crus vineyards, and produces multi-faceted wines, proving once again that terroir plays an instrumental role. From the north to the south, Vosne dazzles us with the diversity of its terroirs. In the northern part of the appellation the 35,26 ha Echezeaux vineyard offers an infinite variety of styles of wine.

Origins

The higher up vines grow in a hard limestone base which produces elegant wines. Lower down, the soil is deeper, producing wines that are more powerful.

Varietal

100% Pinot Noir

Vinification and maturing

The grapes are hand harvested, entirely de-stemmed and vatted by means of gravity. Maceration lasts around 3 weeks with more or less frequent cap trading “by foot”. The wine is matured for 15 months in casks (20% new wood).

Tasting notes

COLOUR : Purple and very dense.
NOSE : Notes of red fruit underpinned by a slight touch of oak.
PALATE : A fleshy, velvety wine, very long on the finish.
