Winemaking and Aging

To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand.
Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component's exctraction. Then full maceration
lasts for 15 days during which we'll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour.

Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts.

After maceration, free and press juices are separated for aging. Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 18 months with
around 50% of new barrels. We only use French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests. The wine spends 2 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.

Tasting notes

Nice red colour with purple reflects.

The nos is complex with black fruits aromas (black cherries, cassis), a hint of spice (pepper) and ending on floral notes (rose).

The wine is ample and mouth-coating with silky tannins and a fresh and vibrant finish.

Food and wine pairings

Our Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru 'Aux Perdrix' 2019 will perfectly match with a Terrine, grilled meats and marinated vegetables.

Service and cellaring

It can be served at the ideal temperature of 13-14°C or cellared for 15 to 20 years.

Art of tasting

Owning great wines in your cellar is not enough, you also need to know how to serve them.

Temperature is an essential element around 53-57°F for the white and 55-59°F for the red. And if you don't have the right tasting glass which will amplify the wine's aromas, you may considerably reduce your tasting pleasure.

A great glass gives a large ventilation surface to the wine and a tightening neck allow the nose to grasp more casily the richness and the complexity of a great wine.
