Description

History

Cécile Tremblay took over the management of the family vineyards in 2003, including one in the Grand Cru Clos Vougeot, and has adopted organic and biodynamic management practices to give new vitality to the land and produce high quality wines while respecting Burgundian traditions. In the cellar, great care is taken in the vinification for the various denominations, also using whole cluster vinification. The wines produced are described as clear-cut, precise, pure, with territorial adherence and a balance between elegance, finesse, structure and complexity. The style is classic but attentive to modern techniques and knowledge, and the wines can be aged in the bottle for further improvement, although some can be enjoyed at a young age.

Production method

The Pinot Noir winemaking process in Burgundy follows rigorous techniques to enhance the unique characteristics of the grape. The grapes are harvested by hand and the bunches are selected in the vineyard to guarantee the quality of the final product. The grapes are pressed and fermented in oak vats for an average period of 10 to 15 days. During this process the must is stirred regularly to extract the tannins and aromas from the skins.

After fermentation, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and refinement, which always lasts an average of 12 to 18 months. During this period, the wine is tasted regularly to assess its development and potential.

Once the wine is mature, it is bottled and left to age for a few months before being marketed.

Tasting notes

Dark ruby color with violet reflections. The nose exhales hints of ripe red fruit such as cherries and raspberries, accompanied by spicy, mineral and wet earth notes. On the palate, the tannin is firm but velvety, creating a silky texture that envelops the palate. Its structure is round and well balanced, with a long persistence of fruity and spicy flavours.

Possible combinations

This wine lends itself perfectly to accompany red meats, aged cheeses and mushroom-based dishes. It is a wine that matures well over time and that offers an extraordinary tasting experience to those who love powerful and decisive wines, but at the same time extraordinarily elegant.
