- It draws photographers from various parts of the world, attracted by the superb Burgundian « cabotte » (hut). Soil: marl and limestone from the Bathonian age; light soil with a reddish coloration, strewn with sharp stones.
- Drouhin estate : Biological and biodynamic cultivation. 1.6 ha (3.95acres).
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir
FOOD PAIRINGS: It goes best with lamb, filet mignon, veal with wild mushrooms, roast chicken. An elegant cuisine, not too strong or spicy, is obviously a requisite.
TASTING NOTES: “Supple and feminine wine with a ruby colour. Elegant nose of small red berries and flowers possibly suggesting roses and spices. On the palate, the wine offers a ravishing and subtile intensity of blackurrant and raspberry aromas lingering on spicy notes. The mouth remains supple, the silky tannins contributing to its delicate finesse.” – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
