This wine comes from 50-year-old vines located in Brochon, between the villages of Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin, at a place called Queue de Hareng
. The soil of this plot (0.5 hectare / ≈ 1.25 acres) is composed of hard limestone pebbles in a silty matrix, giving the grapes a beautiful firm texture.
You will find here a wine with a powerful and firm structure. The fruity expressiveness (characteristic of Pinot Noir) is integrated into smooth, high-quality tannins, and clear minerality persists on the finish.
It is a wine that can be kept for 5 to 10 years, which should be served with hearty food.
Depending on the vintage, we use 50% whole-bunch fermentation, and ageing lasts about 12 months in barrels (with 20% of new barrels) and 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
Serve with grilled beef, roast beef in its juices, or roasted poultry with onion compote.
