Typical of high-class wines of Burgundy, juice is oak barrelled immediately after pressing.

At bottling, all wines are gravity-fed to avoid pumping.

The type of vine, the soil and the style of winemaking give great Burgundian typicity to this wine: full-bodied, with delicate, rich aromas and a long finish, smoky flavours and white truffles.

At its best between 4 and 12 years.
To be tasted with rich fish dishes, with smoked salmon or Chicken Gaston Gerard. Taste also with a rich, fruity Comté cheese

12 and 15°C.
