This 50-hectare clos (walled vineyard) was created by the Monks of Cîteaux. Their cellar was located in the Château du Clos Vougeot, which is now the headquarters of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin.The soil his a large clay content, which accounts to the powerful, well-structured wines that have a rustic side when very young.
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 fermentationThe wine was aged entirely in oak barrels.Duration of barrel ageing : 20 months
Beautiful intense dark red. Great complexity and harmony with notes of black fruits (blueberry, black cherry), refreshing and profound spices evolving into leather and tobacco. Dense, deep and flavourful with notes of fresh black berries and showing a great maturity thanks to peppery and menthol notes. Rich, fresh and warm on the finish with spicy tannins.
