Domaine de Valmoissine is located on the site of the ancient monastery and university of Valmoissine at 500 metres above sea-level. This guarantees sunshine during the summer months whilst remaining cool at night and limits the possibility of spring frosts. The vineyard’s southern exposure gives the raisins perfect maturity at the same time as the Grands Crus of Corton. The yield is small in order to ensure perfect maturity and concentration of the grapes, the factors that create the best quality wines. This results in an elegant wine with remarkable finesse.
Fermentation: Traditional in open vats
Ageing: 10 to 12 months ageing in stainless steel vats
Tasting Note: Of a ruby colour, our Domaine de Valmoissine 2016 is complex on the nose with aromas of undergrowth and raspberry. Ample in the mouth, notes of cassis, licorice and mocha are released. Smooth tanins and very nice freshness on the finish.
Food Pairing: Grilled red meat – cheese – red fruits
