Vintage 2016 26th-28th April: Devastating frost episode! After a very mild winter and a warm spring weather in the second half of April, the bud break was advanced but the frost with high level or humidity at the end of the month destroyed the parcels with the best exposition. After the frost the vine was developing slowly. Acceleration in growth and the maturity of grapes were possible thanks to very warm and dry summer, with ripening that started quickly by mid-August. The harvest started on 20th September and the sanitary condition of the vineyard was perfect. G R A P E V A R I E T Y & P L O T S I Z E Grape variety : 100% Pinot Noir on a 1.17 hectare plot T E R R O I R Beautiful vineyard plot overlooking the city of Beaune. Clay-limestone soil with a predominance of Gr�ves (small pebbles) and sand. The silica in the sand stores warmth from the sun and is an important factor in ripeness. The wines are noted for their elegance and fruit. V I N I F I C A T I O N & A G E I N G The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 20 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) was done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation. 100% malolactic fermentation. Entirely aged in oak barrels. Duration of ageing : 17 months
