Situated just north of Nuits-Saint-Georges, this is one the most celebrated villages of Burgundy, producing world-famous wines such as Romanée-Conti or Richebourg.
The Gauls from the village of Vaona were drafted to serve in the army of Caesar for a period of 20 years. As a reward, the Emperor granted them vineyards, some of which were named “Romanée” by the following generations.
The soil is chalky marl with excellent drainage and exposure ideally suited to the Pinot Noir grape.
Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
“Supreme elegance! Beautiful colour, with intense and bright reflections. The diversity of the aromas is striking: wild cherry, nutmeg, camphor wood, fine leather…Later on, the wine takes on a subtle aroma of truffle, producing the most varied palette. With its perfect balance between tannin and acidity, the wine has a fleshy, sturdy body. Powerful and long aftertaste. A wealth of harmonious sensations characterizes this great Burgundy”.
