Like last year, this is a particular success, and we are delighted to list it again. It comes from vines which are more than 50 years old, previously owned by Thibaut’s uncle, François Marion, who passed away in 2019. It takes plenty of sunshine, as in 2019, to bring grapes from this vineyard to perfect ripeness, as the vines lie high up on Beaune’s First Growth slope. The wine has been ageing in 1/3 new barrels. Colour is impressively deep, with aromas being open, fresh and ripe. The palate is intensely fruity and round, with soft tannins on the aftertaste, very beautiful (for drinking 2023-2034+).
