Description: Valmoissine is located on the site of the ancient monastery of Valmoissine at 500 meters 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 grapes 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.
The nose offers reds fruits and some savoury notes, followed by a silky palate with more dark fruits and ripe tannins and a lovely, elegant finish.
