Description

The last 1er cru of the Côte de Beaune, from a vineyard with white marl soils. The grapes are sourced from the top of the hill, and are always ripe, but never too much so, as the terroir lends firmness, or, as one well-known wine write puts it, ‘bonesetting tannins’. Such a site benefits from warmer conditions: the tannins are still powerful, but they no longer take centre-stage. They melt into the background, allowing the juicy generous dark fruit to shine, and the wine’s freshness highlights the gentle salty mineral warmth on the finish.
