Grown on South-facing slopes at the Northern edge of the Côte de Beaune, this Premier Cru Pinot Noir combines the richness and complexity of the Côte de Nuits with the finesse of the Côte de Beaune. Drinkable now, but may benefit from another year of cellaring.

  • Giving little away at this stage but with leather, nutmeg, and floral notes on the nose. Develops a more pronounced spicy character with air exposure. Similarly tight on the palate, but a little patience begins to reveal a core of concentrated fruit emerging from behind the mask of tannins, which linger on a protracted finish. Distant but with solid structure suggesting this wine will be a long keeper—and better for the wait.

    Food pairing: Rabbit; duck; lamb; roasted chicken; earthy, mushroom-scented dishes

  • Complex, evolving nose suggesting iron, meat, blood, black pepper, and cherries, with slightly nutty, oaky notes. Prominent floral suggestions. Good concentration on the palate, which offers red licorice, black pepper, and brambles. Medium body with an ample frame, while prominent acidity lends a lingering zestiness. Still young. A wine to try again around 2016.

    Food pairing: Meat tart
