The Domaine is located in Morey, and extends over about 8 hectares of land all planted with highly prestigious Pinot noir; however, most of the vineyards are located in Chambolle-Musigny. The red wines produced from these vines are intense, refined and of high quality, with a constant increase in value over time. The management of the Domaine passed from Robert to his son Serge and then to his nephew Nicolas, who has introduced some improvements in recent years.
Some of the cornerstones of the vinification of the dominion are, for example, the very low yield of the grapes, respect for the terroir and the harvesting of grapes only in a perfect state of ripeness. The most demanding objective consists in finding a harmony between the powerful structure of the wines and the great finesse of the tannic texture, without however obtaining exuberant results.
In Burgundy, the Pinot Noir winemaking process follows a strict disciplinary to enhance the characteristics of the grape. The grapes are harvested manually, with selection in the vineyard, followed by pressing and fermentation in oak vats for about 10-15 days. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels for aging and malolactic fermentation, which lasts an average of 12 to 18 months. During this period, the wine is tasted to monitor its development. After aging in the bottle, the wine is ready for marketing.
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.
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.
