- Terroir : "A Côte de Beaune Village Appellation, in Saône-et-Loire, since 1988. The Maranges wine-growing area forms the border between Côte-d'Or and Saône-et-Loire. The slopes do not follow the alignment of the Côte de Beaune, but they share the same origin and the same geology. Exposure is predominantly south by south-east, at an altitude of 240-400 metres."
- Vinification & Elevage : "These grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our red wines, the grapes arriving at the vat room pass over a sorting table and are sorted before being loaded into the vinification vat. We immediately carry out a ""cold pre-fermentation"" maceration which, by cooling the vat to 10°C, optimises the extraction of the grapes' natural flavours and oxygenates the must. We favour long vatting with daily cap-punching for 8-10 days to facilitate the extraction of the tannins and colours. Lastly, the final maceration lasts 3-5 days, while the must macerates gently at a controlled temperature to develop greater finesse and aromas. This is followed by ageing for 16-18 months in oak barrels, 15% of which are lightly-heated new barrels."
- Commentaries by our oenologist : A robust wine, with a very structured mouth, black fruit notes, very chewy, and powerful tannins.
- Food pairing : This wine is a delightful surprise when paired with Asian dishes, such as chicken nems, sweet-and-sour pork or Thai-style fried noodles.
