The Vintage 2010
After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly          Blend of Grapes
interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early september gave way to a bright       100% Pinot Noir
and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in
the last days of September under a bright sunshine.
                                                                                       Jean-Pierre Confuron
Tasting Notes
Bright red colour with dark purple nuances. Intense aromas of violet and liquorice            12.5%
with a hint of spice. Concentrated and well-structured. Refreshing and lively. Spicy
nuances in the finish.                                                                  Residual Sugar
                                                                                              < 2g/l
How to Serve

Super “everyday” Burgundy, ideal with braised and roasted meats, as well as meat-
sauced pastas.

“The lighter red Burgundies, such as this one, are perfect for drinking
alongside white meats and more full flavoured fish, such as salmon and
tuna. Serve cool rather than chilled, to emphasise the tangy red currant
and cherry fruits.”
