Vosne-Romanée, famous the world over for its Grand Crus, also produces some Premier Crus capable of competing with the best. The iron-based soil just north of Nuits Saint-Georges is absolutely ideal for the growing of Pinot Noir. The grapes reach their maximum maturity and it is by means of a traditional vinification that the lively perfumes and great fruit character are released. This wine needs bottle ageing to fully realise its potential. The vineyard of « Les Petits Monts » is situated at the top of the hill, which explains its name.
Fermentation: Traditional in open vats
Ageing: 10 to 12 months ageing in oak barrels, 40% new
