Born from Pinot Noir grapes grown and grown in the Les Suchots parcel owned by 1.85 hectares with vines 40 years of age in the municipality of Vosnee Romanée. The vinification involves a manual harvesting and complete destemming. A cold pre-fermentation period follows between 3 and 5 days which anticipates the actual fermentation which lasts about 15-20 days where daily replacements are made. The wines are aged in oak barrels (new at around 50%) for a period ranging from 15 to 18 months depending on the vintage. Deep and intense red wine, the nose turns to hints of ripe red fruit and caramel, in the mouth we find mentholated flavors of eucalyptus for an elegant wine, well structured and with a good final stretch.
After a particularly short winter, the months of February and March are almost spring, dry, with even a record of heat for the season on February 27, favoring the awakening and early development of the vines. On April 5th there is a first morning frost followed by four others until May 7th. Winegrowers run for cover by lighting fires to protect the vines. The summer of 2019 is one of the hottest known with two heat waves: one in late June and the other in late July. In some places it will exceed 40 ° C. Fortunately, the month of August brings rains that allow nature to regenerate. The climate is cool at the beginning of September to warm up as the harvest approaches, which begins in the middle of the month.
