Description

Sourced mainly from the Créots vineyard above Jes Jeune Rois, with a little Pince-Vin and the rather ominously named Creux Brouillard thrown in. The nearly one hundred-year-old vines always give a wine of great intensity. The roots are so deep that the vines are little affected by vintage variation, consistently producing fine, elegant wines with balance and freshness. The wine is good young, and has an excellent capacity to age. This year it is full of black-cherry and blackcurrant fruit, bright energy and a dense long saline-tinged finish.
