Wild Notes in Wines
The pinot noir and chardonnay grapes cover a small area of 0.04 square kilometers composed mainly of clay-limestone subsoils. The vineyard also enjoys good exposure to the east with an elevation about 300 meters above sea level. This appellation’s red wines offer an aroma of red and blackberries, often accompanied by more wild notes. Pinot Noir is also at the origin of their intense color, dark ruby, with purplish reflections.
