The nose combines finesse and generally sophisticated flavors of Pinot Noir (red fruit brandy) to the more rustic and mineral nature of gamay (peat and graphite).
The whole is a balanced wine, slightly tannic retaining a crisp side of ripe red fruits. Freshness and digestibility that does not tire the palate.
We could confine him to shepherd dishes, during a picnic or barbecue, accompanying salads, sausages and grilled meats.
Glacial moraine clay and silt
20 to 30 years old vines.

Their white wines are pure and delicate while their reds show a nice crunchy fruit.
