The grapes utilized in this bottling hail from Côte de Nuits Villages on the south side of Nuits-Saint-Georges in the villages of Corgoloin and Comblanchien. The soils within this region consist of limestone quarries which retain heat and create an ideal, warm micro-climate within the region. The vines age ranges between 40-60 years old. After harvest the grapes undergo a brief maceration before native yeast fermentation and gentle pressing. They receive 100% malolactic fermentation before maturing on their fine lees in used French oak. The wines are bottled with no fining and light filtration.
Aromatically the wine has notes of dark cherries, jammy raspberries, and dried herbs. The palate is pleasantly juicy, with red fruit flavors paired with warm baking spices, as well as a lingering minty-ness and youthful acidity.
