The first, promising vintage of the Pitures column.
Terroir, production method and maturation: The vines used for wine grow in the middle of the slope near the village of Pommard and the famous Clos des Ducs. 2018 is the first vintage of this wine. The grapes are picked by hand and, after removing the stems, they are lightly crushed before fermentation. Fermentation takes place in large old oak vessels. The wine matures for 20 months in oak barrels, 1/3 of which are new.
Use: For game food.
Description: A spicy scent with a woody herbaceousness. The taste is dense and somewhat tight, the tannins are silky and you can distinguish violets in the aftertaste.
