Beaune Champs-Pimont 1er Cru

2011

Terroir

A large plot with the evocative name of "Les Champs au pied du Mont" (or, "The Fields at the Foot of the Mountain"), located on the slope overlooking the outskirts of Beaune. This vineyard, facing due east, produces both red and white wine. The Pinot Noir grapes in the lower part benefit from a very clayey soil that produces deeply-coloured, powerful wines. The high iron content in the soil oftern accounts for aromas reminiscent of soot or smoke.

Vinification

The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 20 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) was done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation.100% malolactic fermentationThe wine was aged entirely in new oak barrels.Duration of barrel ageing : 20 months

Features

Intense ruby red with dark purple reflections. Smoky, toasty and liquorice notes showing with aeration fresh black berries (blackcurrant, blueberry). Tasty and fine. Beautiful fresh and ripe black fruit. Salivating, very digestible and fine tannins with a touch of spice on the finish.
