“The cuvée Oriane, which combines finesse, power and ageing ability, was born in 2012. It is named after my first grand-child, of the same vintage. It is a blend of two terroirs of kimmeridgean limestone in Chavignol dedicated since the middle ages to Pinot Noir; the hillside of Cheneaux which faces Clos de Beaujeu and Graveron, which is next to Mont Damnés. The harvest is completely de-stemmed then put in tank without pigeage or pumping over; with no intervention during vinification and fermentation with natural yeast. Aging takes place in barrels (50% new), without the additon of SO2. The Indian summer of 2014 gave us dense and ripe berries. This vintage of Oriane gives us a great fruit with cherry aromas, red currant and strawberries and some licorice notes.” -Winemaker
