Grapes, Pinot Noir
Serving: chilled (12–14°C)
About: From a parcel of 45 and 70+ year-old vines, on the top half of the slope, very near the border with Chassagne-Montrachet. As one might gather from the name, the soil is a quite gravelly, lots of small rocks over Argovian marl. The grapes are hand-harvested, chilled overnight. Afterwards, the clusters were put into a CO2-sparged wooden tank for a 14-day native fermentation. The wine is then aged for one year in oak barrels with the finest of lies. No fining or filtration. The resulting wine is fruit forward with black fruit and spice and a touch of floral character.
