Under the influence of a soft and damp winter and hot and dry spring, the vine growth cycle began earlier than usual, by the end of March. Therefore, 2014 was immediately placed among the earliest vintages of the last two decades. But this changed overnight. On Saturday, 28th June, a violent hailstorm that we will hardly forget soon, has destroyed the heart of the Côte de Beaune together with Burgundy producers' optimism regarding the beautiful 2014 vintage potential.

This is one of the greatest terroirs in the Côte de Nuits. The vineyard is located on a fault overlooking the Clos Vougeot and bordering on the Combe d'Orveau. Le Musigny has south-east facing sun exposure and a unique, sunny microclimate. The thin, light soil has a high proportion of stones that not only guarantee good drainage, but also store heat in the daytime and release it at night. The grapes are always very ripe and produce a velvety nectar with lovely floral (violet) aromas and an impressively long aftertaste.

The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 18 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) was done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation. 100% malolactic fermentation.

The wine was aged entirely in oak barrels for 19 months.

Food pairing
