Tasting Notes

This 1.27-hectare vineyard (3 acres) is located at the bottom of the slope. It enjoys a soil composed mainly of clay and loams.Pottery fragments found in this vineyard show that this was a farming settlement in Gallo-Roman times. After the farm disappeared, the site remained without vines for a long time before being planted again. “Sanvignes” [vineless] then changed to “Cent-Vignes” [hundred vines] – since a plot with vines cannot be “Vineless”.These reds are remarkable for their colour and the delicacy of their aromas. In the mouth, they combine complexity with mellowness.They are the ideal accompaniment to red or white meats, or cheeses such as Cîteaux, Brillat Savarin, etc.

Reviews

Rich and juicy, this wine holds excellent potential. With its ripe red-berry fruit, balanced tannins and acidity, and spice from the wood aging, it will become a concentrated wine. Drink from 2020. Score - 93. (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 1, 2016)
