Dark and intense ruby red with purple disc. Extreme distinction and a great elegance featuring very refined notes of dark berries, flowers (violet, petal of pink) and sweet spices aromas. Great and fine texture with a smooth touch and a fleshy, ripe and fresh fruit. Very beautiful sapidity and silky and digestible tannins on the finish. Located in "Champs Traversins", in the heart of the historic Echézeaux vineyard, the vines are planted in north/south rows at the end bordering on La Combe d'Orveau. Fairly thin brown soil. Very fine sany/siliceous gravel on the surface. Perfect microclimate: cool, well-ventilated, and healthy thanks to an air current. The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 21 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) was done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation. 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged entirely in oak barrels. Duration of barrel ageing :18 months. ABV 13%
