This Grand Cru parcel is monitored by a vine-grower who takes care of the vineyard on a daily basis. He constantly seeks the right balance between his own work and the biological cycle, so as to allow the terroir to fully express its nuances.
Following hand picking in small cases and meticulous sorting of the grapes, pressing takes place in two phases: evacuation of the first juice, then pressing in two-hourly cycles. Depending on the profile of the vintage, maturing is carried out for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels, with a proportion of new barrels that may be up to 20%.
A warm spring with some hail in the northern part of the Côte de Nuits. After an even flowering and a warm June, the summer arrived with variable July weather. Fortunately August was fine with a period of hot weather in the second week. September started with some rain, then became fine and warm again. A harvest of healthy, ripe grapes followed. The 2009s have all the structure packed in with rich, luscious fruit. Comparable to the 2005s. Great wines.
