Our vineyards producing our Vosne-Romanée are located in the climats 'Les Quartiers de Nuits', 'Les Hautes Maizières' and 'Les Chaladins'.

Total area : 1,05 hectares (2,471 acres) planted between 1921 and 1980.

Climat & Soil : the 3 plots are located in the north of Vosne-Romanée, touching
Vougeot Grand Cru. The soil is a classic mix of limestone and clay. However the plot
'Les Hautes Maizières' offers a solid calcareous entrochal.

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 extraction. We work since 2014 with 'vendanges entières' full clusters (30%) .
Then 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 wines are separated for aging. Aging is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 16 months with around 30% of new barrels. We only use French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests.
Then the wines spends 3 month in tanks before bottling.

Tasting notes

Deep and shining red color with purple reflects.

The nose is complex and delicate. It develops floral (violet) and spicy notes (black pepper).

Tannins are smooth. Great balance between the structure of the tannins and the roundness.

The final is long, fresh and with a bit of saltiness

Food and wine pairings

Our Vosne-Romanée 2019 will perfectly pair with a 'Poulet de Bresse' or a 'Saint -Nectaire'.

Service and cellaring

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