The producers we have chosen provide us with high-quality musts, which we vinify in our cellars in Nuits St Georges. They benefit from the same technical means and the same attention as our other Côte d’Or wines.  
The wine is matured in oak barrels for 13 to 15 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.

Our Tasting Notes:

A dark garnet colour. This wine has woody, fruity and spicy notes on the nose. Then comes a full round attack with velvety and silky tannins on the palate and beautiful balance.  
It is all finesse, charm and elegance.
