A deep, dark red depth of aroma, accented with faint herbs. Round, more concentrated, rather supple with fine tannin – a beautiful presentation here. Finally a dark mineral element in the finish. Lovely.
From the relatively discrete appellation of Pernand, an excellent burgundy with finesse and structure providing longevity.
The grapes are hand-harvested and transported back to the domaine in old-style wicker baskets. Following destemming the grapes ‘enjoy’ a 4-5 day cold maceration before fermentation begins, without added yeasts, in their cement fermentation tanks. The total time in the tanks would be about 18 days with occasional pigeage or remontage – depending in the raw materials. Elevage in barrels tends to be at least 11 months. The wines are usually racked once in the summer, the second racking comes when they are assembled for bottling.
