This 1er Cru is situated to the eastern extremities
of the appellation, adjacent to Pommard on a
chalk and powdery limestone subsoil. Produced
from vines averaging 60-65 years old, this wine
is aged for 14 months in 15% new oak.
The nose is immediate and impressively inviting.
Thick, sweet edged and forward, dominated by
mulled black fruits, confiture, cherry and smoky
spice. The tannins, appearing soft to begin,
tighten up as the mouth develops, yet are never
overpowering, as the fruit is just so thick and
succulent. Freshness comes from a touch of
citrus and cranberry on the finish, with distinct
chalky minerality and a ripeness that just wells
from the glass at every sip. One stunning wine!
