This wine is made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape.The grapevines are situated between Buxy and Saint Gengoux le National and are generally grown midway up the hillside. The soil is very shallow and ventilated. The heavily pebbled earth is ideal for the Pinot Noir.These grapes are grown from calcareous soil with high limestone content on the Côte Chalonnaise. The slopes are gentle and face towards the east and southeast.
The wine is aged first in stainless steel vats, then in oak barrels or casks. How long the wine is aged in casks depends on the vintage.
With a fine, clean red colour with ruby glints, the nose openson red fruits which are typical of Pinot Noir (blackcurrant, morello cherry and redcurrant) with hints of smoke, humus and sometimes animal touches. Rich and complex, this wine has a firm texture on soft, elegant tannins and a fine balance.
Meats cooked in sauce or grilled, such as a choice charolais filet, a burgundy fondue and strong cheeses (époisses, coulommiers...). With several years aging, it can be an excellent accompaniment to lamb, duck, and game.
