Côte de Beaune-VillagesCôte de Beaune-Villages

This AOC (Registered Designation of Origin) dates from 1937 and extends, in red wine from the Pinot Noir grape, over 14 villages in the Côte de Beaune.

Vineyard location:
Our Côte de Beaune-Villages comes from a combination of our red wines from Chorey lès Beaune, Savigny lès Beaune and Auxey-Duresses.

Vine population: Pinot Noir - 10 000 vine stocks per hectare.

Average age of vines: 55 years

Wine-growing terroir:
The Chorey là Beaune vines are located on fluvial marl-limestone ground on a stony base, descended from the Côte over the millenia. In Savigny, the plot facing direct south, benefits from gravelly ground, strewn with ferruginous oolite. The Auxey-Duresses plot is planted on very stony marl-limestone ground, with an easterly exposure.

Wine-making techniques:
Macerated in wooden vats for 3 weeks, manual push down of skins and pumping, matured in oak barrels during 18 months. Assemblage completed later, thanks to different taste trials.

Tasting notes & ageing potential:
Ruby-red robe. Bouquet of soft red fruit (strawberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants and blackberries) and flowers (violets). On the palate, the first impression is friante, fine and smooth, letting a small amount of perfectly grainy tannin express itself.
Pleasant to drink young, this wine will acquire a velvety texture and spicy notes after 3-5 years of aging.

Recommended serving temperature: 15 to 16° C.
