A really great wine, appreciated by the Burgundy connoisseur for the diversity of its aromas and flavours.It has a beautiful ruby color, a seductive nose dominated by aromas of wild cherry and spice, evolving towards leather. A certain chewiness in the mouth, with fine and noble tannins providing the structure. Ample and fruity aftertaste.
2020 vintage has been highlighted by a remarkable concentration. The wines have a beautiful intense ruby colour. The nose is very expressive and complex with red and black fruits. The nuances of the terroirs are already perceptible. A great vintage to keep.Vintage review

Harvest: grapes harvested by hands in open-work crates. If necessary, a careful sorting is proceeded.

In accordance with the terroir and the profile of the vintage, we do 2 to 3 weeks of fermentation and maceration in small open vats, marked by punching of the cap and pumping-over. The yeasts are indigenous (natural). Pressing in a vertical press. Separation of the ends of the presses based on tasting.

The ageing lasts between 14 to 16 months.
