The Clos Napoleon, a parcel previously registered as Aux Cheuzots, owes its name to its owner at the time Claude Noisot, an Officer in the Imperial Guard. Claude Noisot, who accompanied Napoleon to the Island of Elba and wished to pay homage to his emperor, commissioned the sculptor Rude from Dijon to create a statue to be erected in the Noisot Park. The label of Clos Napoleon is a reproduction of this sculpture named Le Réveil de Napoléon (The Awakening of Napoleon).

It would have been better with fish. I drank it with someone special.
Red with violet nuances. The smell of violets was so strong that it seemed curious to me. It is the softest wine of Cote De Nuits.

A nose of violet and blackberry, bold, with hints of pepper and licorice, fleshy in the mouth as it should, of beautiful guard?
On the palate, the attack is mineral A wine of character, strong and dense, with a good length
In conclusion, a final of enormous length on notes of tobacco, sweet spices and truffles
