The hand-picked harvest goes through a short prefermentary maceration first before being vinified. For the duration of the 15-18 day vatting period, the wine is kept at low temperature.
It is then matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The barrels, which come from high-quality barrel makers, have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.

A quite intense ruby red colour for this Côte-de-Beaune Villages.The powerfully fruity and slightly animal nose is dominated by very ripe strawberries and cherries. We rediscover these greedy aromas on the palate. The finish is quite long. It's a wine to enjoy for its fruitiness.

The Côte-de-Beaune Villages 2006 opens with an expressive, fresh, spicy and slightly animal nose. On the palate, the tannins present need a little more time to blend in. The whole is supple and very round, remaining young and fruity. It's a fresh wine which can be enjoyed from now on.
