Winemaking

Harvest: Manual, in small cases of 13 kg. Careful manual sorting of each grape.

Vinification: Following total or partial destemming on the vintage, fermentation in small containers, gentle pressing ensure optimal vinification. Depending on the profile of the vintage, vatting lasts 15 to 20 days.

Maturing: 12 to 14 months in French oak, with 30 to 40% new oak.

Ageing: The cellars of the Bastions of the ancient Château de Beaune offer natural ambient conditions that are perfectly adapted to ageing the Premiers Crus.

Tasting Notes

Garnet colour with mauve to brown shades. Pleasant bouquet of cooked fruit, citrus zest combined with slight toast. A very pleasant wine.
