in the vineyard : The Burgundians say that if a vineyard produces wines from the Pinot Noir grape that have the same colour structure and taste year after year, "the grower has an uncle in Algiers" (he is adding something to achieve this). This statement may be politically outdated, but is still true about Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir, the most fragile and demanding cultivar, is responsible for the famous red wines of Burgundy and records the vintage more accurately than any other cultivar.

The intensity and breeding remains lingering on the palate due to the 10 000 Burgundian cloned vines planted per hectare on 60-80% stoney soil, like the Premier Crus, confirming our philosophy of "Sun, Soil, Vine, Man"

in the cellar : The wood component acts a a platform for the wine to perform on and is not a curtain that disguises or distorts the story of the vintage. The fine Troncais wood is well integrated in the cherry-like fruit flavours, adding complexity and length after 10 months maturation in barriques. The small crop and warm vintage are clearly reflected in the intense brilliant colour. The wine has been bottled for nine months at the date of release, December 2000, and is showing a very positive evolution.
