It comes from Pinot Noir grapes grown and grown in the lieu-dit of Hautes Montiotes in Vosne Romanee, a small village of about 400 inhabitants located in the heart of the Cote-D'Or. The vines grow on soils composed of a 30 cm horizontal upper layer of limestone and gravel, under which jagged rocks rise. In the vineyard Pierre Girardin works according to the guidelines of organic farming. The power and concentration of the fruit, produced by the heat and dryness of a vintage that had to be harvested almost urgently in mid-August, are elegantly balanced by the acidity and a salty finish that amazes the taste buds. 50% of new wood and 40% of bunches for a great aromatic complexity! Everything you would expect from a Grand Cru Côte de Nuits.
It has a ruby color with light reflections that tend to purple. The nose has great cleanliness and delicacy with notes of small black fruits and black cherry. In the mouth it has great breadth with a balanced body, good freshness and delicate tannins. Very good persistence.
Wine with immense evolutionary abilities.
Taste it at a temperature of 16 ° C. It is ideally paired with roasted or grilled red and white meats, but it is with the duck breast with berries that creates a perfect combination.
