Patrick Miolane is based in the village of Saint-Aubin and assumed control of the 9-hectare estate from his father in 1998. In addition to vines in Saint-Aubin he also has small parcels in Puligny and Chassagne-Montrachet. His wines are uniformly excellent and display real characteristics of the terroir from which they come. The whites are restrained and mineral; the reds pure and well balanced. The grapes for this particular red come from 50 year old vines grown on the south-facing 'Les Perrieres' plot which is situated to the rear of the estate. After a lengthy fermentation the wine is aged in oak barrels for 3 years.
A dark ruby in colour. A nose of raspberry, liquorice and earth. On the palate, rich and generous with defined tannins and a ripe acidity leading to a lingering finish. Drink with roast venison, beetroot and goat's cheese salad or a chunk of Epoisses cheese.
