Background
Our plot is located in the "Les Champs Traversins" single vineyard. A high proportion of sand and gravel in the soil, the steepness of the slope ("traversins" is derived from Occitan and meant "steep slope"), and the proximity of the Orveau valley are all factors that make this terroir capable of producing a wine with such characteristic elegance and sophistication.
Winemaking
Rare and difficult to find but this is a stunning example of Pinot Noir, approachable and accessible today but with time and patience you will be rewarded with this very rare wine and what it delivers.
Tasting Notes
The nose features a palette of red berry and summer fruit aromas, enhanced by spicy notes. Round and well balanced on the palate with harmonious structure and rather discrete woody notes. The finish is incredibly long with a touch of dark chocolate on the finish.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Serve between 16 and 17°C (60°F - 63°F). This wine may be cellared for 7 to 10 years or more.
Food Matches
During a meal, this exquisite wine can accompany finely prepared red meats, all types of game, stews, marinated red meats, and roasts as well as most cheeses.
