Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

Deep, intense but very bright. Stunningly racy, salt-flecked fruit notes of redcurrant, damson and red cherry. Long, tense and concentrated, incredibly focused, despite the 70% whole bunch fermentation there is no heaviness, just a suave texture. Superb. From the high Rouges de Dessous parcel just above Echézeaux, a late-ripening gravelly vineyard that yields wines of great vitality.

Notes
Fresh, dark red. Musky black raspberry and gunflint on the nose, lifted by pungent mineral and floral elements. Fully ripe but with terrific energy from the 70% whole-cluster fermentation and a powerful crushed-rock element. Today this wine's superb vivacity partly masks its serious underling material. Should evolve slowly and gracefully. A sentimental favorite.

Cecile Tremblay

Cecile Tremblay

Rising star Cécile Tremblay, Henri Jayer’s grand-niece, took the reins of her family domaine in 2003, working a total of three hectares of the family’s six hectares. As with all top growers the attention to detail here is in the vineyards. Cécile tends her vines with the utmost care and respect for terroir and the environment, practicing organic and biodynamic farming. In her own words "the grape bunches are my English roses, the vineyards my garden." To ensure low yields (between 25 and 35 hl/ha depending on the vintage) pruning is short and excess buds are removed. The wines undergo a cold prefermentation maceration and are then fermented either with no, some or all of the stalks depending on the wine and the vintage. There is the minimum of intervention here with ageing taking place in oak barrel (20 to 75 % new wood depending on the wine) for 15 to 18 months. These wines are a beautiful marriage of vivid, individual terroir characteristics and silky sensuality.
