A very "Vigneron" Beaune 1er Cru


The name Coucherias originates from the fact that the vineyard is exposed West so facing the sun sets. It was planted in the 1960s. The plot is situated on a soil that is constituted of clay and limestone, and that is very steep. It is divided into two sub-islets, the smallest being a former quarry. The soil is very clayey and red, which gives a dense texture to this wine’s tannins. The “Clos” is isolated by trees and broom which is a rare plant in Burgundy. The plot has been cultivated with biodynamical practices since its origins in 1983.


Traditional high density vineyard 10000 vines per ha, West facing exposure, Guyot cane pruning


Hand harvest at optimum ripeness. Winemaking: Mainly whole cluster vinification, gentle extraxtion, in wood en cask Barrel aging: 15 months on average in 50% new oak.


Notes of cherry and liquorice on the nose underpinned by a light touch of oak. Supple and appetising on the palate, with lovely body and lush red and black fruit. Well-defined tannins on the finish. Enjoy with grilled red meats, mushroom risotto or a mature Mimolette cheese. Cellaring: 8-20 years.
